I got Capitalism and Freedom (Friedman), Babbitt (Lewis), 1984 (Orwell), Wuthering Heights (Bronte), Tender in the Night (Fitzgerald), A Man Without a Country (Vonnegut), and The Stranger (Camus) today at the bookstore. Good haul but I couldn't find Why Does E=MC2 which I was kind of bummed about but I'll just have to order it.

Jurassic Park
The ending to Jurassic park in the book is a million times better then the movie, and really made the whole book for me. Haven't read any of his other stuff, except for his sequel to Jurassic Park that I thought was so bad that I quite reading it extremely quickly.

It might not be anything new to you but the way they lay it out is picture perfect in terms of teaching someone. Now I can discuss it with other people without saying: "You kinda have to just know."

The logic exercises they do are really good.

Great little book that is funny, insightful, and honest. Definitely something I'd suggest people to read.

Jurassic Park
yes yes yes!!!
I read Jurrasic Park like 5 or 6 times already, begining at the age of 10 and my last time was like at 19. Great book.
Now I'm in this campground that I work in, there's not much to do, so I went to the thrift shop and bought me some Crichton: Rising Sun and Next. I've read Timeline once before, I had chills doing that. He makes me feel things.

But anyway now I'm reading DUNE and it's also good. Great franchise (although I only played on Sega and then on PC some).


And the book... Well, all three movies are based on that single book. Some chapters/ideas made one film, some made other. Btw JP 3 is the first movie that I watched in a cinema. Great experience. I think second movie was the worst from them three, but since it contained some scenes from the book I loved it. You should read the book no matter what, then enjoy the movies. Simple.

I always end up reading multiple books at one time. Currently:





Those are the two I am mainly reading. Started them both late last week. Both are good so far.

Just finished the books that precede the two I am currently reading:





Both were fantastic. A lot of surprises. Clever writing and a great attention to detail. Both actually have different viewpoints that it is written from that come together in the end for a pretty interesting finish and set-up for their proceeding books. Can't wait to finish them and move on the next (In the case of Brisingr, the next book comes out in November).
