    Just finished up the Harry Potter series for the first time. Very interesting books.

    What a world Rowling created.

    My cable/internet/phone bill. They called me and I said I wanted to reduce my monthly bill, they made some changes and and said this would reduce my bill but my statement was $25 more this month.

    Book 3 was awesome! Best book of the series so far.

    I'm half way through book 4 "A Feast for Crows" now. Not as good as the rest but I'm still really enjoying it.

    Started reading "The Hunger Games" on my new Kindle Fire. Wanted to power through it before I go see the movie.

    It's an easy read--and compelling. You'll get through it in no time.

    Yeah I got to a point where I couldn't put it down last night. The chapters were just flying by. I'm about 40% through it already.

    Yep finished it in a couple of days. Fastest I've ever read a book.

    Also just finished up book 4 "A Feast for Crows" and have moved onto book 5 "A Dance with Dragons".

    Just finished A Storm of Swords and HOLY CRAP. That was a great read.

    Starting Feast for Crows right now, just a chapter in.

    Took a break from a Dance with Dragons to read the entire Hunger Games series this weekend. Remind me why one is for adults and one is targeted to "young adults"? They are both pretty brutal.

    I just finished The One: The Life and Music of James Brown by RJ Smith. A great look back at the life of Brown and you get to read about the artist and how he came up to be what he is. Good stuff.

    I just bought Showdown by David Corn which is probably an Obama rah-rah piece, but I like the behind the scenes writeups on White House/POTUS happenings.

    I am really looking forward to reading The Mark Inside: A Perfect Swindle, a Cunning Revenge, and a Small History of the Big Con by Amy Reading. This books sounds like the ultimately pissed off guy gets revenge story and it's true to boot! Here is a brief summary of the story:

    Hunger Games characters do not get their sex on at the drop of a hat. :D
