Just finished a book called "Thr3e" by Ted Dekker. Very good read, definitely will keep you guessing until the last page. They also made a movie about it recently, from the producer of X-Men. It's basically about a guy that gets a random phone call while he's driving and is told to confess his sin to the world otherwise his car will explode. He pulls the car over and gets out, and sure enough it explodes. The rest of the story is about this "Riddle Killer" and the main character's dealings with him.

I am reading "A Shark Never Sleeps." It is the story of Drew Rosenhaus written by Drew, his brother, and a friend. A was told that it is all him bragging about how great he is, but it really isn't. Pretty good stuff if you are into being a sports agent. He tells about how he went from being a fan and loving sports to being an agent. Pretty neat.

I am reading Slaughter-House 5 again. I read it Junior year in my honors english class, and I really enjoy it. Just need something to pass the time during break, can't all be excitement! Sadly. :,-(

I just finished Slaughter House 5 last week. Good book. I also just finished The Chocolate War and Beyond The Chocolate War by Cormier (both books I haven't read since High School). It's amazing how much of a book you can remember after 20 years.

I'm now starting Wizard's First Rule after JB's recommendation. I'm only 20 pages or so into it, but I have to say this so far: Mr. Richard had better start asking more questions of Ms. Whatshername or he's going to be sorry. Random acts of magic out of the blue aren't something to be trifled with. :-b
