    Not that long of a drive, though, but the previous post was made in the middle of the trip, so I didn't get home until late last night. Then work today, so update comes now :)

    Fellowship, though I do love Mistborn. But... it's Tolkien. 'Nuff said.

    [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reader_and_Raelynx]Reader and Raelynx[/link] by Sharon Shinn - excellent book versus one of my favorite books

    Abstain, but [face_laugh] at Asamov vs. Asamov.

    [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragons_of_Autumn_Twilight]Dragons of Autumn Twilight[/link] by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman - was not big on either, but I thought this was better (and this series I plan to continue . . . eventually).

    Watchmen, abstain on the rest. Lord of Chaos is the beginning of the Boredom Saga of the Wheel of Time.

    Lord of Chaos
    Foundation and Earth - the other is good, and I would give it a pity vote... but Foundation and Earth is one of my favorites.
    Foundation
    Dune - on reputation alone. I'm almost to reading it!
