Yeah it is kind of sad nobody reads anymore. I find that most books are better than the movies that follow. I like the old classics. When I go to the library I search for the beat up looking books with no pictures on the cover. That's how I know it's what I'll like.

Although I read mostly non fiction books about 2 a week, there are few authors out there who attracted my ecclectic attention like Neil Stevenson, Tony Hillerman with an entirely different genre.  On fiction book that left a mark with an all together different  type of story would be Mqrk Frost's List of 7.  He is more known for his TV serie Twin Peak (which I admit seeing once on DVD), but the book is awesome.  Currenrly I'm reading Edouard Shuré's Great Initiates, a very intelligent work.

i'm reminded of a saying, there's no crime in not knowing how to read, the crime is knowing how but choosing not to..

i guess it only hurts the person who chooses not to read? (..and those stuck interacting with him/her? hehe)

these days i cheat and get audiobooks for my mp3 player.. most of them are doco's and lectures tho'

the wheel of time series by robert jordan is my current love, i'm finding a lot of parallels to real world mythology and religions in them too, only on the 4th book now but i'm yet to be dissapointed (they're more fantasy than horror)

i know what you mean.. but without it, we wouldn't be having this interchange? (almost typed 'discussion' hehe)

..it's just the love of convenience associated with it (tech) that's done the damage.. it's like,, all those devices ought to have come with warning labels [this is going to **** up your life, use at own risk] ..but then, i think this was intended with the advent (and stagnation) of technology [..there's another topic]

Generally, IMO, Stephen King's best work he wrote between 1974 through 1984, read all of this (I didnt like Firestarter and Christine however). He was slamming em outta the park. After IT, he begins to hit alot of grounders and foul balls. I like very few of his books after IT.

As far as Dark Tower books go, the first four books is really all one needs to read even though the story remains incomplete.

Stephen King is an excellent short story writer BUT I only love his first three collections, Night Shift, Different Seasons, Skeleton Crew... and including Nightmares & Dreamscapes. After that there is alot of meh.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).
