    I'm usually reading two books at once - one fiction one nonfiction.

    So currently I'm reading Under the Dome by Stephen King and Surpassing the Love of Men by Lillian Faderman.

    Under the Dome is really interesting so far. I love the ideas that King comes up with. Stephen King used to be a really guilty pleasure read of mine but I'm over my fake haughtiness of reading. He's gross and crass but really a great horror writer.

    Surpassing the Love of Men is a book about the history of the romantic friendship between women... It's really fascinating.

    At the moment the only books I'm actively reading (aside from a few unfinished zombie novels) is the Sookie Stackhouse series. I read all the books and just waiting on the new one to show up in May.

    Are they good? I read the first one and got to a quasi rapey scene and was kinda turned off by it so I put it aside. I've seen the show and I enjoy it but apparently the show and the books are different.

    Yes, they awesome. I tried to read just one at a time, and soon realized I should start ordering 2 at a time because I sped through them so fast.

    The show and books are very different. VERY different. Producers added alot of useless drawn out crap to the tv show for content. Season 1 plot was somewhat the same. They strayed from the story heavily in Season 2 and kept very few book elements in Season 3 unfortunately. The Fae don't dance around in sparkly dresses like they're on ectasy, they actually kill things. Secondary characters are just that, secondary. All supernatural beings stay true to their nature (fighting and biting) so yes there's sporadic examples of feeding and breeding which is expected but not distracting. The books make much more sense and are far more humorous and entertaining.

    Back on topic, some formulas for special relativity in terms of time... Nothing major. But for fun, I'm reading the Lord Of The Rings series again. Probably go through the Forgotten Realms books I have, again.

    If you haven't read it, you need to read the novel for I Am Legend. The movie was good, but didn't stay true to the story almost at all. Totally different story. Plus the book actually explains much more about the outbreak, and even explains the story's title.

    j0be, awesome ending. Have to by a whole book to read 50 pages though. Another good one in the genre is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.
    Currently listening/reading From Eternity to Here: The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time by Sean Carroll. The arrow of time. Not saying I follow it but I am paying attention. Any one care to explain entropy?

    Does rocking the Claw Machine a worthy apocalyptic talent?

    Not at all. I was refering to stories like World War Z, The Zombies of Lake Woebegotten, and Morning Star Strain. I think those are names. I made the mistake of reading J.L. Bourne first and now nothing is good enough. I'll get back to them eventually.
