I just finished the 13th book of the series. The story can get drawn out at times because of the magnitude of characters that become involved, but it is imo the best fantasy series there is. I am not looking forward to waiting till March 2012 for the final book of the series.

I plan to start reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. It is the first book of his new The Stormlight Archive series. I have read everything by Sanderson since he took over The Wheel of Time and I got to say this man has a way of creating some of the most interesting storys there are.

The Ballad of Blind Tom: Slave pianist. America's Lost Musical Genius. About an autistic black slave who is blind but his ability as a musician by playing the piano was discovered at age 4. A musical savant. A fascinating read...about 1/4 way thru.

I finished Talk Talk

It was awful. Typical TC Boyle bullshit, except this time it's personal because he was meddling in a subject he doesn't belong. He obviously did little research about deafness before writing this and didn't even have a real deaf person crosscheck it after the fact.

The main character is so contrived, and really her being deaf does not serve any necessary function in the book. Boyle just wanted to appropriate something "exotic" and use it to try and make his shitty storyline more interesting. It didn't work.

If anyone wants to read a book about a deaf character written by a clueless hearing person, this is the one for you!

Reading fanfictions, especially Star Trek fanfictions. Great way to read stuff online for fun when you don't have the time to trek over to some bookstore/library in this cold, cold, cold Bostonian winter, or is just too broke to get a new book. ^_^
