I finished that series a while ago. It was worth the read. However I agree that "On a Pale Horse" was the best of the series.

Check out "Mort" from Terry Pratchett for another look at Death!!!

But don't eat or drink anything while reading. You'll mess up the book.

Just picked up "Physics of the Impossible" by Michio Kaku, "Physics for Scientists and Engineers" and "Earth (the Book)".

I'm not a geek, I swear...

Awhile back I decided that, for personal and historic reasons, I wanted to read the Bible from beginning (Genesis 1:1) to end (Revelation 22:21), and I just finished a couple nights ago. I will continue to read it, but I don't think I will be reading it from start to finish again.

Right now I am reading a book my friend loaned me, "The Apocalypse Code," by Hank Hanegraaff.
