    Both excellent yes, but Ender's Shadow is the best IMHO.

    BEAN RULZ!!

    Yeah I missed getting Skyward Sword w/ the gold controller apparently. Was $70 but now they are selling it on ebay and the likes for $200!!! Sheesh, guess I'll wait. They did release the old GBA Zelda, legend of the 4 swords or whatever it was for free downloand (limited time only for the 25th anniversary) if you have a capable DS. I stole my kid's 3DS (hey I paid for it anyway!) and hope to get into playing that soon! They updated it so you can play single player now!

    I haven't really done anything geeky at the moment I did ge the kenect for Christmas so I've been playing that. I'm also hoping to get the Forbidden (new Ted Dekker fantasy novel) on my Nook and read that in the new year

    Funny you mention Ted Dekker's Forbidden. I'm currently listening to the Cirtcle trilogy. Listened to "Green:Book 0" and just recently started "Black: Book 1". Pretty good writing so far.

    I'm geeking out on Andromeda Season 3 and Reboot Season 3 currently.

    Coo. I started the circle trilogy at black. I'd be interested to hear what you think of green. You probably had no idea what was going on Smile but I guess you'd feel that way starting with black Wink

    I started the sereis with black also and even though they say you can start the "Chronicles of the books of history" (which consist of the Circle series the Paradise trilogy the lost book series and sevral other ted dekker books like house and skin etc.) I think I reading them in the order of them came out. I know reading them in that order gave me some big "NO WAY!" moments when I read Green

    Reading "Green" first made the beginning events of "Black" make a lot more sense. And it's cool to see how the events of "Black" relate to what happened in "Green".

    The biggest thing that "Green" left me confused about was the whole Elyion thing. But it eventually made sense on it's own. The closing chapters really made me want to go to Black and see how it unfolds. I'm looking forward to finishing Black and moving to the next books.

    nice. I'm 3/4 of the way through season three online. Can't wait to finish this awesome series.

    Is it bad that I'm wanting to learn to play, and perhaps find some people willing to learn to play with me, the game of sabacc? There's plenty of rules online, and ways to simulate the randomizing pulse........

    Not a bit of bad. You just need the right iconic spaceships to win or lose over the course of several hands, and the game is made!

    In regards to the other books by Ted Dekker that tie into the circle trilogy. I would suggest reading Saint first and then Showdown (I could be wrong about showdown it's been a LONG time but I do suggest Saint first)

    Also if I remember right Skin very loosely ties into the circle trilogy or those teen prequel books.
