I just finished my semester, and with the first completely free day I've had in a long while I read Ender's Game from morning till night, finishing the book in a day. It's been a long time since I've had a marathon reading session like that. It felt awesome.

It's also been far too long since I've re-read that book. But now I fear I've signed myself up for more reading than I intended. It's going to be hard to not read the rest of the Ender series and/or Ender's Shadow.

Eh. Might as well.

For the love of. Now I want to reread the series too. Thanks. [Razz]

I get that urge to re-read EG every so often, it doesn't help that I seem incapable of retaining ownership of the book. One way or another they always end up with someone else, and with the current state of book retail in my city I will have to drive to the other side of town.

It'll be worth it though, thanks Strider for commandeering hours of my life.

I know I'm supposed to feel bad about possibly killing your productivity and commandeering your free time, but I seriously had such an awesome day yesterday. I have no sympathy for the joy that will inevitably result from this endeavor.

Well I hope you enjoy fair play, because its fun to re-read The Name of The Wind and A Wise Man's Fear and count all the times Kvothe uses seven worded sentences.

The OCD in me makes me shudder at the thought of doing that.

I'm so glad that Ender's Game is one of those rare books that survives a re-reading every 10 years or so.

I am proud to say I still have my OSC-autographed copy from when he came to the BYU Bookstore in 1995. Alas, the years have not treated it kindly, but it is still in my possession--waiting for the time when my kids will be interested in it.

With the recent news of the Ender's Game movie moving forward, I found myself re-reading it as well.

Of course, I will have to re-read Ender's Shadow as well, since the two parallel each other....

I actually read Speaker through Children this weekend. Forty-eight hours I'll never get back, but I enjoyed it.
Posted by Strider (Member # 1807) on :
Wow PSI, made my marathon look like child's play!

afr, I've found that, at least for me, Ender's Game holds up better than the rest of the Ender books. I mean, I still really love them, but a few years ago when I re-read them all last, Ender's Game had the strongest emotional impact. Also, the metaphysics behind the rest of the books connected with me a lot more as a teenager.

So...just finished Ender's Shadow, and am struggling with the decision to continue or not. I really need to get back some of my productivity!

I've mentioned this before, but what I'd *really* like is every Ender story that was published in the IGMS to be released in one volume.
