Ok folks... I broke the tie with my vote...

Old Man's War for the win...

This is a great book... get reading. I can't wait to hear your impressions.

Oh... and those that haven't read HHGTTG should read that too... it is also a good book, quite funny if you get the dry britt humour.

I preemptively purchased Old Man's War two days ago from Kobo and I really enjoyed the book.

I'm a "read one book at a time" girl, so I'll start after I finish "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest". I'll probably read it while on Jury Duty (in the courtroom ).

Old Man's War, what a book!!! I've not read it, but it's been on my list for a while, guess I'll jump into it! I'm still going through last months book...it's FINALLY starting to pick up....I'm 80% of the way in LOL.

I was actually surprised that Enders Game wasn't on the list.

That's me almost ready to start Old Man's War. I've converted the HTML to ePub and cleaned it up so it looks nice. This was one of the free eBooks from Tor.
