You, sir, are in for a treat.

In terms of actual books, reading a book on Automated testing using Visual Studio 2010. :-B


Although I find this slightly insulting towards comics.
Why are they not actual books..?


As for me, I'm currently alternating between Transformers: Exiles and Moby Dick.
Can't tell which one's the heaviest read, so far.


I've read them before. But they're worth a re-read every now and then.
Next up on Pimp My Jeager.

Just finished reading Fifteen Hours, a book written by Mitchel Scanlon set in the Warhammer 40K universe about an under-manned Imperial Guard outpost surrounded by Orks. It's a great read if your a fan of the 40k universe.

Weapon: Stinger Missile
I'm reading The New Dead, which is an anthology of zombie stories. One is by Max Brooks, who wrote World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide and one is by Stephen King's son. Some of the stories are about zombies only by some very stretched definitions, but on the whole it was good. One story hurt my brain to read, but other than that the stories were average to great, and one in particular (the longest of the bunch) was, to be honest, nothing short of incredible.

I have about three or four left until I'm done.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

I have given up on the previous two reads, will get back to them in the new year.

Currently going through The Jedi Path, which arrived yesterday in Collector's edition!
(As a present, completely unexpected, which was nice.)

Also A Short History of Myth, by Karen Armstrong, which has been waiting on my bedside table for a while. And The Hurricane Party, by Klas Ostergren.
Should get onto Jung's Man and his Symbols soon, or my work won't budge..
The Amazing Adventures of Dennis and Bruce!

What...the...hell...? How is it my fault you can't handle reading?

I'm not impressed with World War Z so far. The Zombie Survival Guide was much better.

WWZ and The Zombie Survival Guide are very different books. If you were expecting something like the survival guide, put the book down now or prepare to be disappointed.


The next book in the Horus Heresy series just came out a few days ago. I'll be downloading Deliverance Lost tonight! I've also started the Sword of Truth series.

I wasn't expecting the same, just along the same lines. And it's not the content, it's the pacing. But I just started reading.

Good! 8) I'd suggest sticking with it for a little bit longer, as I really found it to be a great read!

Wishful thinking. On my part, anyway...

As for World War Z, I have read a 100 pages, and gotten used to the interview style. It is now quite interesting.

Eh, don't let it bother you too much, godzillabot. If it helps any, I've never been too fussed on zombies either.

Moving along, I just bought two novels from the Space Marine Battles series, Battle of the Fang and The Purging of Kadillus. Since I've always found the Dark Angels to be pretty interesting, I got stuck into the latter. And I have to say that I'm really enjoying it. I almost can't put the darn thing down!
