    It’s ho, ho, ho time in this hilarious and wacky Florida holiday tale, featuring bighearted psychopath Serge Storms and his sidekick, Coleman. Like Santa, Serge knows who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Few can give with the generosity and creativity of Serge, and as December 24 rolls around, he is filling up the Serge sleigh with an unforgettable bag of presents. But before that, it’s all a big free-range Christmas office party, where Serge will be spreading his special cheer. And there’s that last-minute go-for-broke spree at the mall (just beware of those attacking elves - they bite).

    Story

    Wow! Tim Dorsey did it again. Non-stop action and hijinks that only Serge and Coleman can do, and in their own way. Many of the quirky characters from Serge's past are here to celebrate the season with this somewhat heartwarming holiday tale. My only complaint is that our time spent with Serge is just not long enough.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story

    If you spent anytime growing up in the 80's, this is a must read. Even though the story is set in the future, you will feel that you are back in the 80's. If you grew up playing arcade games and Atari, you will love this book.

    In the realm of Alera, where people bond with the furies - elementals of earth, air, fire, water, and metal - 15-year-old Tavi struggles with his lack of furycrafting. But when his homeland erupts in chaos - when rebels war with loyalists and furies clash with furies - Tavi's simple courage will turn the tides of war.

    Story

    Nice fantasy series. Well written by Jim Butcher. I like his Dresden series, to I tried this novel on a whim. I was surprised on how good it actually is. The constant bouncing around of the three plot lines was a little annoying at first, but then you get use to it, and it is no problem. Great listen, and now on to the second book.

    I really enjoyed the first novel of this series, the second novel was not that bad, but by this third novel, the characters and plots are just coasting. I hope the fourth novel picks up.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    Harry is dead. Long live Harry's ghost, but for how long? Same humor, action and adventure as the other books in this series, just from a different perspective. Harry must now rely on others for help. It took me a while to get into John Glover's narration, but after a while, he kind of grows on you.

    Nice second book in this series. I enjoyed the Roman side of mythology. Like the first book, this seems more like a set up to what is coming. Must read for all Percy Jackson fans.

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    Another chapter in the ongoing series. If you like the series, then you will like this book, even though it seem more like a transition story than a major plot changer.
