Amazing & shocking till the very end. Every thing I'd want in a George R.R. Martin book. Can't wait until the next one!

Ready Player One Signed 1st Edition by Ernest Cline

I'm over half way through this now - and it's one of the most fun reads I can recall in a long long time. Though I get occasional lapses of sadness that the near future portrayed here in which most of the world is poor but lives, works, & plays within a virtual world that takes Second Life, Netflix streaming, MMO gaming to the ultimate level.

I'm about an 8th of the way into this and as an old-timer gaming & pop-culture geek I am LOVING it. Written by the writer/director of the movie "Fanboys" I can already picture the movie he'll make out of this dystopian tale of a teenager trying to escape his meager existence by completely the ultimate adventure quest to achieve a prize worth several fortunes.

Dragonsong (Dragonriders of Pern)
Dragonsong (Dragonriders of Pern)

This was one of the first books I ever checked out from my magical high school library in 1977. A classic YA tale of a young girl, outcast mostly by a foster family and living on a world where a fiery menace falls from the sky on a regular basis, who finds a next of amazing little 'fire dragons' and becomes special, as we all long today, and is plucked from her hard scrabble existence to pursue her talent for music at Pern's famous Harper Hall. And thus the adventure begins...

Star Wars: Thrawn Trilogy #01: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn
Star Wars: Thrawn Trilogy #01: Heir to the Empire

Cynthia Burmester, September 18, 2011

Here, in the first Lucas-sanctioned (if after the recent changes in the new Blu-Ray edition make that mean anything to any of us any more) fiction set after the events of 'Return of the Jedi', Timothy Zahn takes the reader on a fantastic Star Wars adventure full of drama, politics, and action. Jedi Witches, Noghri, Han & Leia married, Leia carrying twin children, and a mysterious red-head pursuing Luke Skywalker - who could ask for a better beginning to every other post-Original Trilogy book series that followed in the last 20 years.
