    I am in the slow process of reading the Mars Trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson. Finished Red Mars, cool way of how Mars would be colonised...just started on Green Mars.

    Not a fan of Survivor's Quest eh?

    I just finished rereading Area 51 by Matthew Reilly; I think I'll have another go at The Way Between the Worlds series by Ian Irvine next.

    I really enjoyed the Red, Green and Blue Mars trilogy.

    Currently re-reading "Crytonomicon" by Neal Stephenson. In brief its a 'techno thriller", with stories spanning the code cracking efforts of WWII and the establishment of a 'data haven' in the Philipines in the present data. It has a historical edge to it, in that the fictional characters are involved with actual people and events. It appeals to my techy side :)

    I tried several times to read Red Mars when I was in my mid-teens and I just could not get into it. I think I might have to try again soon.

    I've just started reading the NJO from the start, reading Dark Tide II: Ruin .

    Not a SQ fan at all......it's way too 'mushy' for my liking...I expected Mara to be much more 'aggresive' in the romance dept. It's just dragging, I read a bit in hospital a month back, but haven't picked it up since....I may never finish it. :(

    Just read "Thomas the Tank Engine & the Tiger" to Aaron. Started slower than I expected but had a happy ending. Happy TK ?

    Read? What is this read?
    I don't have time to read a newspaper at the moment.
    Closest I get is looking at the pattern on the toilet paper.

    hmmmm
    maybe I could try the dark side, it seems a lot more fun than this goody-two shoes light side stuff.

    Are there any initiations I have to do? Can I be powerful and sadistic?

    Of course.....powerful and sadistic goes with the job...and training.....spend a week with Evil if you survive..you're in. ;)

    AD made a wise move :D after all "the dark side" has a better retirement plan and a better frequent evil scheme points system to boot...

    Still waiting on my ewok ugg boots though :(

    They go well with the white armour ;)

    I want some Ewok ugg boots! What do I have to do TK? I really don't want to be anything spectacular, just something a little nasty and evil who inflicts great amounts of pain on those who annoy the *@?! out of me.

    Unfortunately, wearing the armour is great for everyone else and lousy for you and that is what you have to do!

    I've seen the female stormtrooper armour, A-D, do you wear that? I can imagine it being uncomfortable, is it easy to move around in?

    Its amazing how quickly these threads go off topic ;)

    I've seen the female armour as well. I've also seen A-D.... I shall stop at this point if I know what's good for me.

    So.... [face_whistling] ... what else have you been reading?

    Ohhhh, I'm sorry A-D, I just thought from the way you were 'talking' that you wore the armour, you said it with such authority.

    As for reading, yes, today I did read the paper. Is that a good beginning T-K?
