I'm making progress in Mistborn book 1.  It's good, but I have limited time to embrace my literacy.

Currently reading Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks. Good stuff.

Enjoy the Mistborn books, Din. They are great.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Just started A Storm of Swords.... everyone everywhere has made my expectations high for this book (and not so much for AFfC and ADWD).

I read Cormac McCarthy's The Road a couple of weeks ago.  It was awesome.  Now, I'm reading Grant Morrison's Supergods.  It's an analysis of the culture that brought about superhero comics and such.  Good overall, with flashes of brilliance here and there.

Absolutely.  And as I told someone somewhere, I really didn't feel like anything was inevitable.  Had no idea how it was going to end.  I was pretty sure they wouldn't find the land of rainbows and puppies, but that was about the only thing I thought was off the table.

I finished Lisey's Story by Stephen King last night and enjoyed it overall. Onto Hearts in Atlantis now. I can't bring myself to get ahead in Game of Thrones because I want to watch it unfold on TV.

Haven't had much time to read lately, but I did manage to eke out chapter 30 in the first Mistborn book.  Great chapter, great book, but I get little time to read because gym, work, and the band I'm currently playing in are really demanding.  

I had a few pennies left on a gift card so I bought this "American manga" for my Kindle fire called Vampire Cheerleaders.  It's as cornball as it sounds, but I found it amusing.  Amusing enough that once I collect enough change from the couch cushions, I'll buy Vampire Cheerleaders 2.  If it's just as good, I'll scrounge for more change to snag Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die! next summer.

I just finished Heir to the Empire, the first of the Thrawn trilogy (Star Wars). What a fantastic book. Some of the prose was a little bit cliched, but man was that a fun book to read. Just picked up the other two!

About halfway into Hearts in Atlantis. I can't believe I've overlooked it for so long seeing as how I probably only have around 6 or 7 King books left to read. I had no idea how much it has to deal with the Tower. So great:)

The last book I finished was The Cassandra Project. It was interesting in concept, but the story didn't capture me. Anyway, it was still a good way to spend two hours. Currently reading Lord of Mountains right now. It's alright, it just took too long for anything to really happen in the book.

In Korean, I'm reading 미실 (Mishil). It's about a woman from the Silla Kingdom (back when Korea was divided into three countries) trying to become the queen. She was my favorite character in Queen Seon Deok, so I wanted to read a book where she was the main character.

I recently finished "Desperate Passage," a historical non-fiction based on the Donner Party, which I'd highly recommend if you're at all interested in survival stories.  Despite the genre, I usually loathe non-fiction, the book is extremely suspenseful and some parts border on horror, along with some mystery when you get into the later details.  But it is also quite brutal and descriptive, so if you're squeamish, avoid it.

If you're unfamiliar with the Donner Party, or have only heard that "they were a group of pioneers who got stuck in the Sierra Nevadas over the winter and had to resort to cannibalism" then you'll be amazed at how much you don't know.

I'm currently reading Stephen R Donaldson's Chaos and Order, the fourth book (of five) in Stephen R. Donaldson's Gap series.  This series, while not for the light of heart, is one of the best pieces of fiction I've ever read.
