the kindle app on my phone is good if i get stuck somewhere when i wasn't planning for a wait, but it's in no way ideal. i wouldn't buy a phone as a primary reading device, but it's a nice to have for sure.

The "Ender's Game" Series --First few books were good and then it went downhill
The "Dune" Series -- First couple of books were good.
The "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" Series -- I enjoyed them all but one needs a healthy imagination and a solid sense of reality to make it through these books without going insane.
I hope this helps! Go on a Narrated Sci-Fi bender...my brain started narrating while I was in the bathroom the other day...that was weird.

Trying to decide if I want to try Fantastic Voyage, pick up 1984 again, or do something completely different. Wonder if Tamora Pierce has any new books out...

There are so many I am currently re-reading one of my favorite series already mentioned here:
The Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind. For anyone who likes this series, you should check out his latest work "The Law of 9's". It steps a bit away from his previous works but with his same flourishing style.
More fantasy than Terry Goodkinds work, I also enjoy Terry Brooks, especially his many feats with the Shannara *ologies.
My current favorite author is Patrick Rothfuss, though he has thus far released only two books, "The Name of The Wind" and "The Wise Mans Fear".
I also enjoy the books by James Rollins, who combines our world today with ancient stories, myths, and legends.
I would most definitely be in support of something like a D.I.C. Books/Library Section.

I think that the first book was definitely the best out of the series. Bean does add a new dimension to the series but the books about him seemed a bit uninteresting to me. Too much family-life drama (they seemed to lack the Sci-Fi-ness that the first book was all about) and not enough action/strategy/cool new science ideas. Those books were nearly a different genre.
