Yes... much like like peanut butter and banana sandwiches, twitter isn't for everyone but that shouldn't mean that it's not for no one.

He used to be my favorite writer but now it's all gotten sort of old. I'll keep reading his stuff but after Invisable Monsters and Fight Club I don't know how it could get any better. Also he started to try and write horror rather than his weirdo philosophical stuff. he took a different path, one th...

I never read the Rabbit series. I only read his recent book Terrorist because it was on sale. I liked it. I'll read the Rabbit series soon though.

Seems like everyone's been published now in one way or another now.

I'm not even a veteran here and I remember when just about no one was published.

Used to love his stuff. But he's fallen into the trap of 'his voice has gotten repetitive'.

And he just reads like a supermarket paper back.

If you want to write, you must read...a LOT! *nods* My advice: decide on one or two genres you would like to write in, and read as many books from that genre or genres as possible. For example, I want to break into fantasy fiction most of all, so I read a lot of fantasy novels. I prefer to write in...

On his Wikipedia entry it said that this was going to be the last of the main story in the wheel of time whether or not it was 1500 pages. I've not read anything of Robert Jordan's but I do plan to dive head first into the wheel of time some time soon. Does anyone here read Xanth novels? I sort of w...

Well I also live in a poor country. And I think Charles got more or less right. There will always be some form of copyright. Say if the NBA Finals or the WWE want to use a certain song in their opening montage. But what the companies have to do is make quality/speed/usability/accessibility the key f...

Okay lets say its my problem and I can't understand it. What are you going to do about it? Will you allow the government to confiscate my computer? Or enter my home?

Very well put. A couple things though. I agree to a certain degree that people will buy certain products if they're reasonably priced. For example my favorite band's anniversary boxset. Or hard cover set of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. But I think that comes just from the collector mentality. And ...

You guys are missing my point. For one music companies did try to plant poisoned and fake music files. It didn't work because once someone realized the were bad they stopped being shared.
