Back to Reading Books (E-books that it)


During my college days (to which the internet was just on it's dawning stages), I liked to read books, specifically fictional books. At the time my genre of choice where either "medieval and fantasy" (Dragonlance series of books), futuristic or science-fiction themes (Star Wars series, etc.), and Gothic (Vampires, Demons and Angels). The last set of books that I read was the Dragonlance trilogy entitled "The Legend trilogy" which was a sequel to the the "Chronicles trilogy", I was about to start reading the next book entitled "Dragons of the Summer Flame" when weeks after I lost interest on reading. There where a lot of books at the the time that where great (and some of it where turned into movies like The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien, Harry Potter series of J.K. Rowling and even the favorite gothic hit the Twighlight series by Stephenie Meyer).

With the advent of digital book e-readers like Kindle and now the various type of tablet computers like the iPad and the Galaxy Tab, my interest on reading books (now on it more accessable and enviromentally friendly digital form) has come back. As of this writing, my list books that are currently loaded on my e-reader are: The Mortal Intruments series by Cassandra Clare; The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins; and all five books of George R.R. Martin's "Song of Fire and Ice" series (actually my reason of reading the book version of this series was due to the fact that I cannot no longer wait for the second season of the TV version of Game of Thrones). Aside from these books I am planning to finish reading the "Dragons of the Summer Flame" the final book of the Dragonlance Chronicles series after which I will proceed on reading the rest of the sequels of the Dragonlance.

Another factor that lead me to reading these book is because I am an avid listener of the Sword and Laser, a 
science fiction and fantasy-themed book podcast which is hosted by Tom Merritt and Veronica Belmont
