  1. Book Number: 8 Number of Pages: 364 Book Title: Brother Odd Author: Dean Koontz
  2. Book Number: 7 Number of Pages: 366 Book Title: Magician: Master Author: Raymond E. Feist Sequel to the last book that I put up, and though there are parts that I would have loved more explanation, it is an amazing series.
  3. Book Number: 6 Number of Pages: 323 Book Title:Magician: Apprentice Author: Raymond E. Feist This is an amazing book. I have to read more, I mean, the title character [does not type] and I have to find out what happens! At the start it is similar to the beginning of the Ranger's Apprentice series, but it does not follow the same line, and this is an older book, so it is well-written. I highly recommend to any fantasy reader.
  4. Not sure if it counts, but After School Nightmare has a character who is female from the waist down, and male from the waist up. The whole story is this character trying to figure out if s/he is a boy or a girl.
  5. Discworld: Monstrous Regiment. Redwall: Taggerung I can't decide between the two.

    Too far behind. I won't win this year. Third participation, only won my first year. Next year. As long as no character breaks off partway through and starts their own story and wants me to write theirs at that moment.

    I have no hope of finishing the 50k. *sigh* At least I have a good idea for backstories now, so I can turn this into a web-comic.

    If I write about 15k a day Mon and Tues I can finish. Since the computer stays off on Sunday, and I am able to be on for 4 hours or so a day.. I'm doomed.
  9. Lesse; Sailor Moon Magic School Bus Wishbone Bill Nye the Science Guy Power Rangers (cannot remember what season) Hogan's Heroes The Aadams Family There might be others, but I can't remember them right now.

    Squee! Discworld! I think my favorites would have to be, Monstrous Regiment, Going Postal, and Making Money. I still need to read one or two, but I have read most, and am working on buying them all.

    @aquamarine84 Perhaps the filmmaker wants an 'action' shot that would disturb the balance that the professor thinks/knows is crucial to the environment? Well, I don't think that I will be able to hit the 50k mark.. Simply because I have work every night, and that cuts my writing time into practically zilch. Oh well. I got a good way in for my webcomic.

    @Bourne151 Thanks for the advice, but she's not gonna listen. And since she's a quiet character, this means she is serious. But, she only had one small appearance so far, and hasn't had her big introduction, so it's not too bad. Of course, now she wants me to write her story now.. Maybe I'll introduce an author character who talks about his writing..

    Manga

    I have several, they are scattered around my room, and I need to clean. I have around 10 or so Fruits Basket, about the same Inu-Yasha, the first 4 or 5 of Hellsing, and the same for Nora. I have like one of D.N.Angel, and I might have the first Deathnote, not sure. Oh, I also have like 8 One Piece. I am very disorganized.

    Aand then last night a character that I was counting on said that she couldn't make it to my NaNo this year, because I am planning on turning this year's into a web-comic, and her story is more fit for a series of novels. Great. Now I have to replace her.
  16. WALL-E is a movie that doesn't get old. The lack of dialog I find refreshing, it makes everything else become so much more real. I mean, when in life do you have people talking pretty much all the time? Life really is more about what the silence conveys.
  17. Why do you read? Enjoyment, escape, ideas, improving something in yourself, nothing better to do? Hmm, all of the above? Mostly I read because I don't have anything else to do at the moment, and I like being able to get a bit of adventure in my life. Do the non-content things matter to you? Cover, title, blurbs, summary, outside information, formatting, author's outside affiliations/statements (ex, the author is a homophobe or a rabid [insert political group] or likes trashing other people.. do you care)? The cover has to catch my eye, the summary has to get me interested. Do you judge books as a whole, or can one very great aspect (ex, characterization, style, plot, ending, idea) outweigh s[...] in all the other areas? I have to like the whole thing to consider it good. I don't want to read a great adventure with lousy characters, and I don't want to read about amazing characters in a blah plot. Do you like/hate certain kinds of characters, personalities, plots, adventures, writing styles, or settings? (Elaborate, please? @_@) I like things to be well-written, have something to grab you and pull you in, and the characters have to develop and react. And I don't want things to be too predictable. How quickly within a book do you make a decision? Can you dislike a novel that you have never read, but have seen synopses/reviews of? Mostly I have to read a couple chapters to decide if I like it or not, and usually I will read the whole book, so that I can honestly say I read it. Is there anything in a review/synopsis that automatically makes you want to try/never want to try a novel? If the synopses seems to just tell you about the characters, I probably won't read the book, and if it seems to generic, I will not read it either. It simply has to grab me before I open to the first page. Do you have a favorite fiction genre? If so, why is it your favorite? Do you read widely outside it? Favorite fiction genre? Or do you mean favorite genre? I like fiction, and sci-fi, but I will read anything that catches my eye. Do you recommend any book you love to anyone, or do you try to recommend books you think the other person is more suited to? Only if asked.

    I am so far behind.. But this week I have the house to myself, so except for work, I can write in peace. As long as my characters co-operate.

    NaNoWriMo

    Bleah, I wish my characters would give me more to work with. Then I could get more done.. At least next week I don't have any early shifts at work. I am now over 20k. Need to get more done.

    I hate coming home from work and only having an hour to an hour and a half to get done all that I need to do at night. But at least I don't have to be there at insane o'clock tomorrow.

    Aand, I think I'll be quiting tonight after I hit 18k. I do have to be to work at insane o'clock tomorrow morning. I'll get more done tomorrow after work.

    OK, if I average a little over 2k a day from now on.. I might be able to make it.

    NaNoWriMo

    I really hope that I find enough time to catch up, I want to make it to 50k.. I am at almost 16k right now.. just over half-way to where I should be. It is possible, but not this week.
  25. Book Number: 3 Number of Pages: 182 Book Title: Nerilka's Story Author: Anne McCaffrey I like all the Pern books, so finding one that I hadn't read yet was awesome.
