    James Axler's Deathlands #40 Nightmare Passage

    It's exactly the same as the last 39, just the bad guy has a different name.

    Not sure why I torture myself tbh.

    I am currently reading Pet Sematary by Stephen King. I am on page 203 and so far am enjoying it a lot. I recommend it.
  8. This days I've been reading Planet of Exile by Ursula K. Le Guin (1966).

    This is the third time I read it, and it gets better each time.

    Something that always happens to me when reading to Le Guin is that I never like her books at the first reading because they aren't easy to approach. But the second and third times I re-read each of her books I enjoy them a lot.

    I am reading the Bartameus Trilogy. Sort of an opposite harry potter.
    Defiantly wroth a read. I am mostly fantasy my self.

    Have you read the Iron tower dualagy? A hugely ripped off Tolkien, but basically takes a good series and makes it better. To tell the truth, I like the Iron Tower better.
    Denis L McKerinin(spelling?)
    I highly recommend it just for the Dwarves, the Warrells(halfings trhat are more warlike)
    I have read it twice and will read it again. Almost all of DLM stuff is Great.
    Got get it if you have not.

    The Lord 'Ramage' series by Dudley Pope; out of print and hard to find, but my wife and I stumbled across a complete set at a used bookstore. Brilliant 'adventuring' stories about a British Naval officer in the French/Napoleonic wars. It bring to mind the pulp classics and is quite entertaining.

    Not sure if it counts:
    "Getting started in Electronics" (Forrest Mims)
    Lost it a long time ago, got it cheap from amazon marketplace. Re-Reading now.
    So much fun, its like a cartoon explainging electronics.
  19. Practical Electronics for Inventors

    I took "electronics 101" in college around 15 years ago. I'm a little disappointed that I never followed up on it. I finally decided to delve a little deeper. It's been like a "splinter in my mind" over the years. I finally decided to try and learn enough to at least experiment.
