I'm now 112 pages into The Martian. It's really, really good so far. Whenever I get to another page, I just have trouble putting the book down.

You should just binge-read the rest this weekend. You wouldn't want the movie to ruin any surprises...

Anyway, I found A Game of Thrones at my school's library and checked it out. I can probably get away with this if it's 'safe' enough for a high school library...

I'm going to continue reading the book before I see the film in theaters.

Definitely in my top ten favorite books of all time. Westeros is by far the best and most well-realized setting of any work of fantasy I've ever read/watched. Please, please don't spoil these books.

So you probably won't see the film this weekend, then.

So I finished Fahrenheit 451 (Had to read it for English). It was quite great, and significantly better than Anthem. I'm thinking it's a high A- as of now.

It's a true story, right? We can throw out all the spoilers we want if so. You can't spoil a true story, after all.

Disliking The Shining movie more and more as I ah read the book. Kubrick clearly missed the point.
