I wasn't actually speaking of you, just of my couch, which is a Nazi and thinks highly of itself.
So I sat on it.
I want to give you a hug Midget.

Ooh, right now, Ender's Game is awesome!
I'm going to start reading Speaker For The Dead afterwards.

And then, I shall read the Redwall series once again, same with the LOTR series and the Narnia series.
It will be fun.

By the way, do everyone know about www.bookcrossing.com already? It's an excellent way to find something to read, and to have a small community aspect to it as well.

Have you ever managed to find any of those books? I haven't. It's a very nice idea, though.

Yep, several. It works quite fine, at least in this area.

In fact, tomorrow I'm going to release some myself (Dances with Wolves and something else).

Hey, I got it from the Philippines myself. And it's got a price tag in British pounds, so I suppose it has travelled quite a bit already.

EDIT: Going a bit off-topic. The book in question is Dances with Wolves by Michael Blake - the very novel Kevin Costner based his movie on. The book is a very nice read, and it made me appreciate the film more, as it follows the original text very closely. The style of Blake's writing is nice and detailed, and it offers a very nice view to the happenings inside the main characters head. Recommended.

Darren Shan books are the ones about that teenage vampire, right? I've never actually read them, though. Are they any good?
