Ready Player One Signed 1st Edition by Ernest Cline
Ready Player One Signed 1st Edition

my name is jonas, December 21, 2011

Quite easily one of the best books I read in 2011 and maybe one of my favorite books of all time. We'll see if it stands up after I've read it a second time.

The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien
The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings

my name is jonas, January 1, 2010

These are the best books I read during this first decade of the 21st century. Tolkien was a wordsmith of the first degree and this tale of Bilbo and his kin made me keenly aware of what good fantasy writing should be. I have trouble reading the poorly written fantasy novels I used to read, knowing that great work like this exists.

Fables #01: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham
Fables #01: Legends in Exile

my name is jonas, November 17, 2009

This was a great start to the series. I love the reimagining of all the fables and fairy tales as exiles from their own world. The art is equal to the story.

Twilight (Twilight Saga #1) by Stephenie Meyer
Twilight (Twilight Saga #1)

my name is jonas, September 2, 2008

I thought this book was pretty good. The end was a little contrived. I'm halfway through the second book, and was pretty pissed for about a quarter of what I've read so far. But, Stephenie Meyer has the hook. I will probably read all four.

Italian for Beginners (Full Screen)
Italian for Beginners (Full Screen)

my name is jonas, February 7, 2008

This is not the best movie in the world, but is pretty on par for a romantic comedy. Actually, it's probably better than a lot of the crappy American romantic comedies in theaters today (a la Kate Hudson/Matthew Mcconaughey). If you're in the mood for something light and fluffy, this is definitely your movie. The acting was pretty good and the story doesn't drag. I actually don't remember much about the movie, except that it wasn't bad.

If you don't like reading your movies, though, you might want to learn Italian and Danish first.
