    my mom loved that series
    she read all the ones that were published before she died a few years ago
    wasn't there one just published like a couple months ago??
    do you plan on reading the entire series??
    that'll take forever

    Damnit! I forgot to take my Kindle with me to ProgPower. I hate reading on my smart phone for extended periods of time.

    Unfortunately, I broke my Sony Reader a couple of weeks ago, and I haven't found the Kindle I picked up as a backup, so I had to go with pBooks for the time being.

    Both. But the kindle is amazing and super convenient. I am liking it better every day, and now prefer it over books. Especially when reading a 1000+ page hardcover (damn you Neal Stephenson!)...the ebook version can't be beat.

    Both - but I have a penchant for reading books the size of doorstoppers, and it's so much easier to travel with a Kindle, especially since the battery lasts forever and I don't need to pack the cable for anything less than two weeks.

    Same here, on both counts. Plus designating less shelf space for books means more shelf space for CDs.

    Well this was all but unreadable. I gave up less than halfway through.

    Just finished this one. Like a Walking Dead episode in that there was 95% aimless wandering and talking about their feelings and 5% zombie mayhem.

    if you're talking about the size/weight issue, then i can understand,what you're saying, i very rarely read hardcovers, and the paperbacks i read are the small "pocket book" sized books, where the print is smaller with the pages thinner /more light wieght than the pages of harcovers

    the phrase "books the size of doorstoppers" sounds like you talking about really small books not really big ones, i had to re-read it a couple of times to get what you were saying

    i read small paperback books while eating all the freaking time, because i can't eat while reading a heavy bulky hardcover

    i would love to see a Kindle-type-thing where you could read comic books/graphic novels on it, that would be really awesome, does that exist yet?? and if it does, where can i buy one??

    Missed PPUSA this year, but had a consolation prize given to me (literally) in the form of a week in tropical paradise. When I wasn't partying with the natives, sampling the local cuisine, guzzling home-brewed concoctions, or just admiring the scenery...I killed a few books...

    Recently got hooked on the Zombie Fallout series by author Mark Tufo. Great sense of humor along with the zombie apocalypse theme. And an English Bulldog named Henry figures in very heavily with each novel. Great series so far!

    Yes, it is. One of the funniest, most sarcastic, germophobe, lead characters in any book that I have ever read and could/would make a very memorable role for someone.
