    Stranger In A Strange Land

    I just finished re-reading Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a strange land, one of my top favorites. After a couple of new books, I plan on re-reading Orson Scott Card's Enders game series. Sci-fi fantasy, oh how I love you.

    Hunt For Red October

    I know it's a really dated book but I very much enjoy the early Tom Clancy books, especially Hunt for Red October and Red Storm Rising. Red Storm Rising was the very first book I ever read cover to cover. I'm dyslexic and found it extremely difficult to learn to read. I hated it...
