After taking a few months off, i'm back on the Autopia Chronicles.  Hit and miss... i think all the stories are goin to merge eventually and be good, but for now just tedious.

I can't say enough good things about the Wool Omnibus (Silo Series books 1-5) by Hugh Howey (Spelling??)
 
You can get them through the Kindle store or on Amazon, but it's online only still i believe.

I just finished the Shift series by Hugh Howey.  It's a prequil to the Silo series tha rave about so much. 
 
It was pretty good, but not perfect like the above mentioned.  I'd say 4 of 5 stars, mainly because a charachter kind of went rogue at the end.. but it was definitely gripping in most places.
 
Now, on to Dust, the final book in the series. Kind of bummed that this won't go on forever to tell you the truth.

My mom hooked me up with a book called "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson.  It's his account of hiking the AT back in the mid-90s. 

It's really really good so far (i'm about 1/2 way in).  His writing is funny, clever, well thought out, and informative too.  It has a nice flow in it.  It's easy to forget it's non-fiction, because you really get wrapped up in the story of him, his buddy, and their adventure.

As someone who has just gotten into backpacking the last few years... I'm really enjoying it!

^ Well, the 2nd 1/2 of the book wasn't as good as the first half.  it kind of ran out of steam.  Two other complaints: 1. he is constantly berating people trying to "talk gear" and give him tips and advise... yet he proves how unprepared he actually is out there.  Total hypocrisy.  2. I suddenly realized how much littering these guys do.  Cig butts, trash, and even gear is "thrown off a cliff."  it was funny at the time, then I realized they are just f'n littering.
