Aaaaaah...

I do love things being neatly catalogued and collected.

In this case, it's my books. I've uploaded the entire damn list to LibraryThing. :)

*happy sigh*

I'm missing several books in my library. If you have any of my books, could you post here to let me know?

I'm specifically looking for my copy of Ishmael, but there are a few others I'm after as well.

Jumper

Jumper is one of my favorite all-time books. I've read it many times when I was a child. It's an amazing coming of age story about a boy that discovers that he has the ability to teleport.

Some description may be triggery. (rape, abuse, etc.) )

Suffice it to say, I love it.

Well, they're making a movie based on the book, and I'm finding myself ambivalent. They're taking elements of the book, yes. But it seems like they're adding this whole extra plot about other teleports and going to war with one another and all this nonsense. The whole point of the story was that even with his powers, this boy can't fix everytyhing. Adding this epic battle with other teleporters and crap... It makes the whole thing more... movie-friendly, but much less... personal.

But we shall see.

Btw: You can actually read most of the book online, I think: here

I need some new books to read. I just reread Distress, and now I'm reading Permutation City again. I want to read some really thought provoking sci-fi or fantasy right now. I could always grab a Terry Pratchett novel, as those are usually thought-provoking AND funny, but I want something new.

Any suggestions?

I think I've lent movies and books out without realizing it. If you have any of the following let me know:

My book True Selves
My movie "What the bleep do we know?"

Anything else of mine... :) I'm so absent minded... :-D

Note, this entry was originally published on my old blog back in 2005. I have ported it here for completion.

Been reading Greg Egan's short story Cocoon in Luminous

Oh boy do you HAVE to read this. I think I'll write a spoiler-ful review on [livejournal.com profile] jmurton626 as soon as I finish it.
