I'm about 20 chapters into Mistborn book 3. What a great series.
Make that about 30 chapters now.
aaaaand I haven't even started book #1 yet. Despite it sitting by my reading chair now for a few months.
I DID just finish Cosmos, though.
I loved the heck out of it, even though I didn't quite understand it all.
Carl Sagan has the amazing ability to make complicated information accessible. I love his writing style, which makes plain his absolute love for the Cosmos, and everything in it. The man is so darn inspiring. I could even hear his voice from time to time as I read certain passages.
A side effect of reading such a book, and even watching the show, is that you end up feeling so damn small. We are but a pin prick on a prick x 10,000,000(and then some!) when it comes to the scale of ALL things. It's overwhelming, and I can understand why not everyone wants to accept that. Facts are facts, though, and we are SO darn lucky to be part of it all.
A must read for everyone. YES, everyone.
