The way of kings by brandon sanderson

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

RE: What Are You Currently Reading?
I just ordered about a half dozen books to prepare for the break after this semester ends the second week of December...can't wait to read something I want to read! Got some Hitchens, got a vampire book, a serial killer book, and still have some others here I haven't read. Looking forward to reading something that isn't part of an assignment.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude.

Buzz Aldrin - Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home From the Home.

The book is actually quite moving, I really enjoy reading it.

Recently started reading The Mists of Avalon, a novelisation of the King Arthur legends. It's actually got a Christian vs pagan theme running through it, and this quote stood out to me:

"What wise god would consign a man to hell for ignorance; instead of teaching him better in the afterlife."

Thought it was cool and wanted to share. Good book so far, if a little overly wordy. I like reading but I hate humongous books that could fit into normal-sized books, but are just padded with fluff.

Ohh I am in the same boat as you. I just ordered The God Delusion, Scarecrow Returns (Matthew Reilly is a fantastic author), I Am American (and So Can You!), and Ghost in Wires.

How to Create a Mind - Kurzweil

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: What Are You Currently Reading?
I'm reading Legacies (The Corean Chronicles). On page 277 I think.

The author describes the world pretty well, creates more believable characters than most, and develops the main character nicely. My only gripe so far is that the Sanders are never described properly. What exactly are they? The book mentions their sandy bullet-resistant bodies, them disappearing into the ground, how they don't wear clothes... So I'm thinking humanoid by the clothes comment. I know they are magical like the Soarers, and they are never seen eating. Sand elementals? Unless I missed a sentence somewhere.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.
