I don't read much fiction, but I really enjoy the Saxon Series (Last Kingdom) by Bernard Cornwell. I've read the first 10? books. I love Viking culture and early british history, so it's the perfect mix.

If anyone's interested in learning more about our universe (and physics), We Have No Idea is a great book, funny, and very informative. The authors have a podcast called Daniel and Jorge Explain the Universe, which is one of my favorites.

I'm actually reading a book now, it's called The Bible. lol.
If you enjoy Bernard Cornwell, and are interested in the history of the Napoleonic Wars, the Sharpe novels are a great read. Follow the career of Richard Sharpe from Private in Indian, to rifleman in Portugal and onto Waterloo.  I thoroughly enjoyed them.

Have to agree with Justin Bourne; Ritchie has been completely invisible.

Ritchie had a hard time sticking on the Bruins 3rd line. I'm not sure what we're expecting from him.
He is turning out to be like that horrible film "Ritchie Rich",  which became invisible right away.

At least he tried, good for him. I think he could have stuck on a team like Arizona, but there is no place like home.

I picked up Dune, just to refresh before I see the movie, now on Chapterhouse (book 4).  I love the Dune universe.  Frank Herbert had a very big brain.

You mean he successfully avoided Cleveland
Smart move, next to the hell meter of Buffalo.

Sure, the Leafs have their problems, but I just watched the end of the Buffalo vs. Arizona game and it could be a hell of a lot worse.
If you live in Buffalo you are already in hell and if you live in Arizona, its hot as hell but you don't really give a shit about hockey.

Engvall made a great assist.............to the wrong team.

Montreal claimed Adam Brooks
That Brook is up Shits Creek.   Actually I hope he get a chance to play.  Just don't score to many on us.
