Donny/Brittany on the block now... I hope Donny survives the vote.

 
Brittany is already starting to crack in that house and needs to go... but the longer the rest of the house leave Donnie there, the easier it gets for him to walk away with the game

Let me know what you think. I hope you like it as much as I did!

I've got the second book and will start it as soon as I finish the one I'm currently reading.

 
got this yesterday and am only about 30 pages in so far, but definitely appreciate that this hits the ground running right out of the gate. i feel like too many fantasy/high fantasy novels i've tried to get into lately are too big for their britches from the beginning and spend the first 300 pages setting up way too much information before ever actually getting into any type of a story

i mean, i'm sure this is doing the same thing... i'm sure Locke isn't just some little kid the whole book, but at least it feels like something is happening right now

I can't recommend these books enough:

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch - First in a series of seven books, with only 3 being published so far - one of my favorite "new" authors... It isn't so much as medieval fantasy in the vein of GoT but it is more like a Renaissance era Venice type setting... but you'll fall in love with the main characters like you do with the GoT characters. Locke Lamora himself is probably one of my favorite protagonists ever.


just bought this, thanks

In Topic: yellow jacket nest in the back yard

You can get a spray that will kill them and shoots a stream of poison a very long distance.  I have used it.  It works.

 
used this last week and it seems to have done the job well... after both my dogs got stung and i got stung while weed whacking, i figured it was time they found somewhere else to live.

their nest was underground and i'm still not sure where, so i doused a pretty large portion of the ground i thought they were. they'll apparently re-enter the nest after being sprayed and spread it to the nest as well. they've not been swarming in that area since and i've seen a few checking out new places to set up shop

I haven't read poo since I finished GoT last summer and then re-read Hyperion Cantos.  I went on vacation last August and put my reading tablet away and haven't touched it since...  got into football and never picked back up on reading... :(
 
I'd like to get back into something... idk what tho.

 
same boat here... started a few different books (including The Way of Kings, and couldn't get in to them)

need to get in a reading mood again

thinking about grabbing a signed version of the new patrick rothfuss novella (through his charity), so that may kickstart the desire to read again when it shows up
