Not sure about "14" by Peter Clines, it starts really interesting but I am not so much in sci-fi...but it seems a good book. Maybe I'll get that one anyways, is only $8.
Too many numbers.

Need a calculator to decide what to read.

Currently rereading Clancy's the Hunt for Red October.

I read the translated version before and found it immensely enjoyable.
Now I'm reading the original so I stumble a lot because of the nautical and technical terms.

I actually have no idea. My hubby gave me a copy of his ebook. Its published by Vintage Books through Random House. I've read the first 2 pages, about 5 times...

You're right! Didn't even realize that they're both number titles!

I don't even know what editions/versions are out there. Probably this one I'd guess: http://www.amazon.com/Scanner-Darkly...scanner+darkly

Thanks!

Ethan Frome

Im reading Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton for school! It is a very interesting book and I like it. If anyone has read it, I will be glad to hear from them and discuss the book because we will be having a test over it soon. I just want to get different views from other people, you know. See if Im missing an angle!

I've started reading "Gone Girl", but I'm not far enough into it yet to feel comfortable stating any opinion on it. I hope to get a lot read tonight.

Cool Hugh Howey and Tony Hillerman

Well, I completed reading Night Watch, a Russian Urban Fantasy, and also watched the movie adaptation of it. The book is divided into three novellas and the movie was based on just the first of the three. Down the road a ways I'm sure I'll read the next book in the Night Watch trilogy of novels (the trilogy has now expanded to a total of 4 books).

For my first book of 2013, I'm going to read Hugh Howey's newest addition to the Wool saga (Silo Series (Wool) [7]), Second Shift: Order that, like Night Watch, I received as a Christmas present.
I completed my read of Second Shift: Order. Just after I started reading it my 'Christmas Kindle PaperWhite' arrived by UPS! So my first book of 2013 was read on my new PaperWhite! Second Shift: Order was, as we've grown to expect from Hugh Howey, an excellent book and well worth the price (...er...I know, it was a present)...the asking price!

Right now I'm just starting to read the 14th book of the Leaphorn/Chee mysteries by Tony Hillerman, Hunting Badger.

BTW Added to my TBR list -- shoot, it's only 99 cents at Amazon! whoop!
and written by a good ol' Oklahoma boy! Bonus!
Hope you like it Kenny. Yeah, I'm cheap! The $.99 price enticed me as well.

At the end of December, I picked up a few novels from the Warhammer 40K universe because of the recommendations of a reviewer that I trust.

At the end of the year I finished the first, First and Only by Dan Abnett. A good read and a nice introduction to the universe and the beginning a long series (Gaunt's Ghosts - 13 novels at this time). 4 stars. Two more on my list.

I'll finish the second one, Horus Rising by Dan Abnett later this evening. This one is the start of an 19 novels, 18 short stories and 4 novellas series (Horus Heresy). A complex and well written Military Science Fiction novel. 4 stars. I've got 3 more of these to go.

If you have any interest in Military Science Fiction, you should give these a look. Ebooks only available directly from The Black Library.

I'm abandoning this. I really liked his "Dragonman" novel, but this book is much more arbitrary and mythic — not at all to my taste. I've got three quarters of the way through (in the hopes that it would grow on me), but I just don't want to bother reading the rest.

Time for something light that I know I'll enjoy: Grantville Gazette #45. The latest (Jan 2013) in the series of short stories, serials and fact articles about Eric Flint's 1632 universe. Fun stuff.
