I'm so pleased you're enjoying it jabbur! I found myself doing the same. I think it would be wonderful extra credit reading in an American History class.
Since I finished it I'm having a hard time finding anything that holds my interest like that did. Sometimes reading a really remarkable book can spoil you!

I envy you, having that series yet to read! "Gone Tomorrow" is one of the best, but I enjoyed every one of them. AND I'll probably watch the movie... but Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher is such a STRETCH. so to speak

I'm reading George Takei's new ebook, Oh Myyy! There Goes the Internet. I'm really enjoying it and glad I got the pre-sale version. It's quite funny.

Nope, but I think you can order it for Kindle or Nook now.

My thoughts exactly, especially considering the book's description of him. I was thinking someone more like Daniel Craig.

Shrek is reading, Gone Tomorrow, right now. He's enjoying it. Thanks so much for responding, now I know who to thank for the suggestion. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And Tom Cruise was a very poor choice...

It's mostly about his experience using Twitter and Facebook. He writes about the effect of having a lot of followers and his surprise.
