These are great fantasy books, Michele! Once you are done reading them, check out Hobb's The Liveship Traders, which is, I think, her best series so far.

Getting Things Done by David Allen. Great book, but the poor compression of the diagrams ruin it somewhat. Caveat emptor.

The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman. Bit of a disappointment. This whole "flattening" of the world is kind of obvious and self-evident. Not sure why it was necessary to write a whole book to get such an obvious point across.

Nathan,
Don't know all of these but IMHO "The Speed of Dark" is good but somewhat depressing. I identified strongly with the main character though so that may have been why.

Also Moon is a great writer but "Remnant Population" was one I just couldn't get into.

Thanks! I've put this trilogy of trilogies off for a long time. While many love Farseer and Tawny Man, it seems that they either love or hate Liveship Traders. While I do have it in paperback, I couldn't bring myself to buy it in ebook quite yet.

Tawny man bundle is set after the liveship stories so I would highly recommend reading in order.

Robin Hobb has become on of my favourite authors. Her new series is also shaping up quite well although the first book is a little slow, I found the second book to be a real page turner. I'm waiting patiently on her conclusion to the Soldier Son trilogy.

I more or less expected Speed of Dark to be a bit (don't pardon the pun) dark and dreary, and I've turned away from Remnant Population a couple of times in the past. My wife is doing PhD work at the same university that Moon went to (Rice University, that is) and they spotlighted her in the last Alumni magazine. The synopsese of those books sparked my interest, and, hey, I had 50 free dollars to spend.

I really liked Moon's Familias Regnant series (that was before I started reading Weber's Honor Harrington series, they seem a bit flat by comparison), and The Deed of Paksenarrion was most excellent to me. I thought I'd branch out a bit more in her works. I'm not sure about the Trading in Danger series, it doesn't look terribly interesting to me, but I'll give it a go, perhaps I'll love it and have to have the rest of them.
