So I've been eying and lusting after a nook and its fancy new 1.3 firmware even though I know I can't afford one. And all that looking at something meant to read books made me think about...BOOKS.
Let's talk about books. Anybody read anything recent that was really good? Have an obscure old favorite?
Where do you read books? When do you read them? What books do you read? How do you read books?
Etc and so forth.
If it involves books, say it. I'd like some good recommendations on recently published books and currently running ongoing series, too.
My favorite book of all time is Dumas's "Count of Monte Cristo"(or at least the unabridged English translation), though I of course love the geek standbys as well(Hitchhiker's Guide, Neuromancer, Slaughterhouse-Five, Snow Crash, et all). I also have Star Wars books as somewhat of a guilty pleasure.
Also, this isn't the thread about pictures of boobs. There shouldn't be pictures of boobs in this thread.
...unless it's a picture of a book that just HAPPENS to contain boobs. Because then it's absolutely on-topic and worthy of discussion.
