Reading The Hunger Games now. It is a quick light read, some good twists. Overall not bad, I'm sure it will be made into a super cheesy movie, which coincidentally is due out next summer.

Someone sent me the 1st 2 Hyperion books. #51 on the list. I liked the 1st one, BUT it feels like the 1st season of Lost. Maybe there's some awesome explanation for everything, or maybe it will end up like Lost did.

i've read the books too. And actually, the movie comes out next month. Doesn't look too bad, just don't like Peeta's actor. He's in too many "kids" movies.

Just finished reading the final book, A Memory of Light, in the Wheel of Time series. The mammoth 14 book series was begun by Robert Jordan, who died before completing it; and Brandon Sanderson finished the last three books of the series based upon notes and outlines left by Jordan.

The book was very good, and the series is one I highly recommend. The middle books drag out the main storylines quite a bit, but the result is the the character development ends up making the main characters very real. Good book, good series.
