I finished No Country for Old Men a few weeks ago, the adaptation was pretty close to the actual book, but as in most cases gave a much better picture of the story and was just 'more' then a movie could ever be.

I get to go see Chuck Palahniuk on 5/20 for his release of Snuff. He is going to be up in Ann Arbor for anyone in the SE Michigan area. First 150 get a personalized signing + 2 other books signed. I have a doctors appointment up there in the morning and I plan on just hanging out around town all day.

I been reading Game Informer lately. I need to go buy some nice novels soon. Maybe they can help me pass time once I deploy.

I am re-reading "The Art of Deception" by Kevin Mitnick, mainly because I saw it staring at me funny from the bookcase.

The only books I ever pick up are Haynes manuals tongue.gif . I've never been into reading books for pleasure. If it doesn't contain important technical info then I'm not interested.
