I read through all of Asimov's Foundation series again. I am in love with this book series. It rates a 100 out of 10 on the awesome scale.
War.

At the moment, I have no new manga to read, so I started on a book I borrowed from a friend, Covenant With The Vampire: Diaries of the Family Dracul by Jane Kalogridis, and so far, it seems like it'll be an interesting read.

Foundation is awesome. Except the note the time line ends on is somewhat bizarre. I mean, it's good and all to have a collectivist society portrayed in a positive light for once, but it just came out of left field and crushed what we had been rooting for all along.

I recently read 'I Am America (and so can you!)' by Stephen Colbert... Which was oddly disappointing, mostly because it's basically a repeat of the previous Daily Show book, the 'Guide to Democracy Inaction.' Normally the reflective dynamic between the two shows work, but in this case it just came off as stale. If you haven't read Democracy Inaction and are into the satirical tone of the Daily Show/Colbert Report, then you'll probably enjoy it.

I also read 2010, the second of the space odyssey books. It was largely enjoyable, but suffered from serious 'middle child syndrome.' Lacking the self-contained art of it's predecessor and lacking also a fulfilling ending. The ending was definitely neat, but the story felt incomplete. As well, it kind of threw away some of the implications of the prior work in favor of other territories. I'm unsure if I'll pick up 2030 or whatever jazz is next.

3 in rapid succession, cause I love procrastinating. More novels for me than usual even though I've got a couple of nonfiction and history related stuff I still have yet to get at:

Blow the House Down- Robert Baer (author is a former CIA sort, and now a commentator, I have a nonfiction one about the agency by him which I'll probably read soon. This is just a very plausible, well done spy novel)

No Country For Old Men-Cormac McCarthy (Theres a movie version of this coming out, apparently getting good early reviews, the Cohen brothers are directing it. I'll be interested to see how its adapted into a film, it dosen't seem like a perfectly adaptable novel)

The Tomb - F. Paul Wilson (Good stuff, fun and engaging thriller novel about a pseudo-underworld private investigator type who winds up getting dragged into dealing with the paranormal...its much better than what I'm sure my description sounds like)

And I've just started Conspiracies, by the same author, and is about the same characters from his other book.
