I listen to books on tape now. I got addicted to them while driving the geeksquad car (Geekmobile.) How is that for a cliche.

The kindle is no good. I enjoy the performance aspect of books on tape. Storytelling (even while reading a book) is an art.

Somehow I've always found the people reading it annoying...The inflection just bothers me somehow. :?

And nothing will ever top the smell of a book.

ive heard a lot about it, never read it, movie sucked, (everyone sais book is 10x better than the movie though, it always is) and no one likes star wars anymore star wars didnt stop after the movies finished (for some reason a lot of people think that), since then there have been over 100 novels made. but thats fine if you dont like star wars

I like the Eragon books, but the writing is kinda...long. His descriptions just drag so...

And the movie sucked on a level wholly uncomparable with anything besides maybe the Lemony Snicket movie. That really sucked too. :x
