    Yeah, I didn't know either when it first came out. It was just a happy coincidence, and I'm glad I read the series. Dang, you know a lot about books way more than I do. After I graduate from school, I plan to read a lot more of what I actually want to read instead of textbooks all day. Dx

    Yeah, the movie had some dry spots and I hope that the book doesn't. However, I've also heard that the director of the movie pulled a Michael Bay and just did whatever he wanted, so the book and movie aren't that similar at all. Who knows though, maybe I'm wrong haha.

    Have you ever read Hitchikers guide to the Galaxy? :p
    Also, what's a good fantasy series you'd recommend, kinda like a quest type of thing?

    Ah okay, yeah a lot of famous authors seem like that. I guess it just takes one big book or series to become famous, which is cool because I'd like to write a book one day but I don't know if I want it to be fiction or what.

    I'll probably try Ender's Game at the end of next eek though, I haven't been able to read as much this semester because I'm trying to achiever a 4.0 and have harder classes. Last semester I was able to read like 2-3 books a week, I love reading as well haha. The Lorien Legacies are amazing, tough they are kind of teen-y. I would definitely recommend them if you like Science Fiction, the first book in the series is called I Am Number Four. A movie came out about it a few years back ,and I saw it when it first came out so I don't really remember how similar to the book it is. The last book in the series comes out this year, and I suspect that more movies will be out after that.

    If you're thinking about reading the series, then I would suggest reading the first one and if you don't like it, then maybe don't read the rest because the books are similarly written. However, the author, Pittacus Lore does do a better job at the writing style as the books progress, it's kinda like Ender. The story is great though, and at the ending of the first book there is a cliffhanger. However, I do wish that the books were a bit longer because I felt that things passed by too fast towards the end.

    Another book I want to read is 2001: A Space Odyssey. :p

    Ah okay, I'm fine with that then! The first book in The Lorien Legacies wasn't written particularly well imo, but the plot was probably my 2nd. favorite of the 6 books written so far. Ah, you seem like a huge fan is it your favorite series of all time? :p

    Rough, like written poorly or rough like a dry and just a lot of fluff?

    Okay, it reminds me of Lorien Legacies a little bit, but Ender's seems a lot more complex. With Lorien Legcies there are the main canon books, ten there are The Lost Files which are short stories from other character's points of views which are interesting to read too.

    I think I will start with the first book that's told from Ender's point of view, that would be Ender's Game right?

    Ooh, I see.

    Well... maybe sppf's FFQ (fanfic quarterly) will be motivation? For the challenge in the upcoming February issue is going to be "writing a crossover fic", and that'll be for the next three months...

    One of the better "Meowth: 'what if we stole this Pokemon'" sequences I know of, heh.

    Also! There was a large, live fish in Prof. Layton vs Phoenix Wright! But it was not a trout, nor was it thrown at anyone.
