    The last of the Choose Your Own Adventure books I needed:









    And with these 3 books I now have every Choose Your Own Adventure book from #1 to #69 and are the only ones I want.

    Plus I also got the latest edition of the Overstreet Comic Price Guide (43rd Edition):

    "It is not by reasoning or by our understanding that we have received our religion; it is by external authority and command."-Michel De Montaigne

    on Amazon.com it can cost between $94 - $212 (£58 - £130), seriously go to amazon.com and search for "9781847376657"

    I paid £1.99 ($3)

    I may not like star wars but this is quite a good bargain
    That's a hell of a bargain! Especially since that book is right near the top of my wantlist. My most recent purchase is Dan Brown's Inferno. He has quickly become my second-favorite author (right behind JK Rowling, of course )

    Just bought The Stench of Honalulu: A Tropical Adventure by Jack Handey (SNL Deep Thoughts guy) and I'm really enjoying it so far. If you like nonsensical humor, check it out. I got the hardcover on Amazon for ten bucks

    World War Z by Max Brooks. I knew that it was not like the movie and that it was based after the "war" and was designed as a collection of reports and stories from survivors, but despite knowing all of that, nothing could prepare me for how utterly and incredibly boring it is

    Just out of curiosity I took another look. The price range for this book on Amazon now stretches from $45 - $998

    The problem for me is that EVERYONE has the same "voice". None of the different survivors have different personalities and if it wasn't for the fact it tells you who is talking at the start of each "chapter" you could be forgiven for thinking the whole book was being told by one person.

    That and being placed years after it all took place, it has lost a lot of suspense because whenever the current narrator is talking about their brush with the undead you know that he/she comes away unbitten. After all how else can they be talking to the "investigator".

    This is one of the rare cases when the book should have been more like the film. Heck if they did (or have done) a novelization of the film (so a standard novel) I would happily read that as I think World War Z is possibly the best Zombie film ever (at least imo)

    It was too political for me.
    Too dry.
    I'll give it the uniquness of how it was handled; however, it had zero entertainment value for me.
    I suffered to get through it.
    I usually stop at 100 pages if it dosent grab me. But at a book so small i figured i should just finish it.
    The graphic novels are much better. The art work is amazing!
    The Robert Kirkman Walking Dead books are really great! Full of twists and turns and, obviously, very character driven.

    The God Delusion - Richard Dawkins

    Picked it up at a thrift shop for a few bucks. I'm not looking forward to reading the thoughts of a scientist making arguments pertaining to philosophical matters but I'm sure I'll get through it.

    A copy of Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Pellucidar" paperback with a Frank Frazetta cover in good condition from a local used book store. Frazetta-covered novels are a passion of mine, and I like Burroughs' style.
