Robinson Crusoe. It's been a few years since I went through that one so I decided to revisit it.

Treasure Island, for the same reason.

Nod, I just finished that and Count of Monte Cristo a week or so ago. I love free ebooks on my phone.

Yeah, I use mine during my breaks here. I sit outside, usually share an apple with the lizards, and read for a few minutes.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I just finished The First Law Trilogy. Amazing series, as it has already been said.

His other books are damn decent as well. They all take place in different parts of the same world, with the stories involving folks who were minor characters in the trilogy. Best Served Cold was great. The Heroes was difficult for me to get through for some reason, but in the end it was pretty good. I'm almost finished with Red Country, and it's just great. Though every book after the trilogy is just a side story showing another facet of his universe, with events that are pretty minor considering the history of the world, they are all important in that they all contain glimpses of the larger machinations at work. Superb storytelling, and I can't wait for another series that continues the metaplot.

I bought all three of them before making my previous post. I'll take a break from his work so I don't get overloaded, but I'm looking forward to each of them.

DEATHFORCE: There are certainly crazy things you can do with this game, you can generate a world that is 3 times the size of earth before it starts having errors, although I dont know how long it would take to generate a world that large anyways lol

TRASSIN: I'm guessing about 21 days? Assuming you take a break every 7th day or so.
