  1. I got it for free, and it involved a kidnapping. It wasn’t good enough to re-read, as I recall, or bad enough to throw away.

    You’re not criticizing me for Glorious Appearing? (I have found the Left Behind series to be fun-but-shallow; they might be categorized as an adult Christian’s Hardy Boys- or Nancy Drew- level books.) What scares me is that so many people take them as factual. I’d love to bring some of the Bereans forward in time …

    Ender’s Shadow, The Philip K. Dick Reader, A Case for Christ, and A Different Drummer were my favorites of the books I read in 2004.

    Jack McDevitt’s Eternity Road was a re-read. I highly recommend his science fiction, although he tends to do poorly in the denoument, everything else is superior.
