    now that ive started american gods, i really like the premise. these gods come to america but as people stop believing in them, they stop having god-like abilities.

    hi mike :)

    I love that series too. I think he ran out of steam in the last couple books but I still love it.

    Once upon a time I had this job, 2 times a year, delivering 40,000 lbs of lobsters and all day long while weighing and bagging the beasts I thought about the lobstrosities... lol.

    What a wonderful word. So wonderful that we ended up with a lobster in our Xmas tree. We couldn't find a lobstrosity so we used a regular lobster :(

    I can NOT wait to get back into that!!! I read the Talisman and The Black House and The Gunslinger. But I read them all in about 10 days, so by the time I got to the second book of the actual series... I was bored.

    But I recently found ALL of the illustrated ones (the ones that have a color image every x amount of pages) at a garage sale for $10. So after I finish the book I'm now, I'll start up again!

    I just got through The Hunger Games. It was recommended by a friend, and I didn't know it at the time but is a trilogy. It's actually labeled young adult, but was a very interesting read. I couldn't put it down and read all three books in a week. Now I'm dissappointed because I can't decide what to read next. This series was just a pleasant surprise to me and I've never read any thing like it before..so it was a good change. I'm actually trying to scope out what could be similiar to it! LOL

    I've read the First Two. I don't really think it should be labeled "Young-Adult" I think it should be more of "Adult" the concept is very dark, in my opinion, but that's why I love them. And I'm really getting annoyed with people starting groups "Team Gale" or "Team Peta" lol.

    Anywho, they are amazing books. Really makes you think about what it would be like to live in a world like that or even have to go through "The Games".

    The Pagan Christ by Tom Harper

    The basic premise is that most of the stories from the New Testament such as the Virgin Birth, Palm Sunday, Last Supper, Crucifixion, Ressurection etc. came from Egyptian and other pre-Christian manuscripts. Tom Harper is a journalist and protestant minister, but his writing is not as "readable" as it should and could be.

    Life After Death

    If you believe everything you read, then the descriptions of hell/hades in this book by those that have visited these realms in near death experiences will certainly give you nightmares.

    I read it last year. Not sure if it was ibooks or kindle reader app on iPad but it was free. Probably close to my top ten. Read it right after Jeckle & Hyde.

    I'm starting The Lincoln Lawyer tonight.
