I bought 'The Help' on Friday for my Kindle and could barely put it down. It was a fantastic read.

I've read the the whole WoT series, really liked them. Though I wasn't a big fan of the ending.

I love long book series. Dark Tower series, Ender's game and Shadow series, other Card series like the Maker series and the Homecoming series, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games. I need a new series to get into, maybe song of ice and fire (game of thrones) as I'm loving the tv series.

I tend to find an author I like and read most of their books. Robert Heinlein, Stephen King, Michael Creighton, Orson Scott Card, some James Patterson (mostly the Alex Cross books but a few other books too), some Asimov (foundation series and some robot books).

I'm currently on the second book of the Rho Agenda trilogy by Richard Phillips.

All of the Creighton books they made into movies are SO much better than the movies. The first Jurassic Park movie is the best movie made from any of his books. Sphere was a great book, horrible movie.

Creighton died too young, still had a lot of good books in him I'm sure. Really liked his last few books with the biotech flavor, of course I'm a biologist.

I loved Timeline. The movie was practically unwatchable. Forget following the plot when watching it.

I forgot about Timeline, never even bothered seeing the movie. You should check out Pastwatch by Orson Scott Card if you liked Timeline.

I haven't, I've heard it mentioned a lot though so I figure I will have to try it out sometime!

I'm rereading Outlander (Diana Gabaldon) for the millionth time right now, since they're making a TV series of it - I want all details fresh in my mind.

Also my OH stole my kindle so I can't finish the last Mistborn book til he gets back on Monday (grr).
