    I've never heard or read of anyone referring to a man as being empowering. Not real common? I tried searching and came up with a bunch of info on anti-Trump artwork from the Obama 'HOPE' artist.

    I agree though, not a masculine look
    You act like i read the review because it was from a woman. I wanted some reccomendo on some fantasy books. You look way too deep into things. Probably relating to your own judgments.

    Thinking Fast and Slow
    by Daniel Kahneman
    Recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics

    Great book by a very intelligent person. At times a bit hard to comprehend but I feel better for sticking with it and definitely feel as though I've learned a good deal. Daniel will definitely change the way you think and explain why you think the way you do. This won't appeal to everyone but I do reccomend it. At least pull up some excerpts online if you don't feel like taking the dive.

    Maybe I will post a quote in your quote thread.

    Just about through with Mistborn book one, but before I finish the trilogy I need a horror break. More than likely will read "Relentless" or "Life Expectancy" by Dean Koontz before finishing the Mistborn series.

    Really looking forward to the "Odd Thomas" series, but i dont want to start with a 6 book series in between a trilogy. :/

    Im hesitant to start the "Malazan Books Of The Fallen" series, as I hear its so revolutionary it ruins contempory fantasy novels. While I'm sure it's an exaggeration, figure I'd save the most complex for last.. I would like to read "The Sword Of Truth" & "The Wheel of Time" series before jumping into the 24 book monster that is Malazan..

    Going to start on the last Mistborn novel tonight, read the 6 Demon Cycle series before the final book drops in August.

    I have some stand alone novels to serve as filler, as I'm sure I'll run through these books in a couple months..

    "Gwendy's Button Box" is due out May 30th, King's latest novel, and i also want to read "It" before September to make the film that much more enjoyable.

    All I want to do is read anymore, there's too much I need to cram..

    Not to mention the Odd Thomas series, Traitor Son Cycle series, Dexter series, Talisman series, John Dies at the End series, the Magicians series, Ice Wind Dale series, A Song of Fire and Ice series and dozens of stand alone novels from Heart Shaped Box to The Road to The Rising to Thinner, to Roadwork to The Island to Dreamcatcher to The Stand.. the list goes on..

    It sounds like a trip.

    Most of his work is too dark for my taste. Particularly "Weaveworld : Books of Blood"

    Curious about Abarat though..

    I've been buying shelves. I have a very obsessive personality, and this past year my obsession has been books. I have two filled up, but after May 30th I don't plan on picking up another novel til August 15th when "The Core" drops.

    I have enough to keep me occupied, buying more is just redundant as I have probably 50-60 unread books.

    It's just nice having them on hand.. just can't afford it currently..

    I'd like to transition to more productive/historical books.

    I'm in love with Dean Koontz, while I think he takes religion a bit too far at times, who am I to criticize?

    So far he's the only author I've found beyond Jeff Lendsey who has merged horror and humor so well. Koontz>Lindsey.

    I have only laughed out loud during two novels, and both of those novels were written by the same author. "Relentless" and "Life Expectancy" we're brilliant. While I read Relentless first and found it amazing ignoring the meh storyline, the writer delivered. During Life Expectancy I had low hopes as I felt he was forcing his humor upon me in a corny sense, but later jokes compounded upon themselves where I recognized he was just setting up the punch line.

    I just finished "Life Expectancy" and from it I gathered never trust a circus proformer, especially if he's an aerialist...

    When it comes to Koontz I've finished both books in under 3 days, I think that says a lot as I generally spend 1-3 weeks on most novels.

    I'll be starting "The Demon Cycle" or "It" tomorrow before work, I haven't decided yet.
