    Good luck, mreq!

    I found "Кортик" to be too violent for my tastes... Going to read "Артур" by Люк Бессон.

    "Trading for a Living" by Dr. Alexander Elder. It is a book about the technical analysis of stocks and the psychology of stock trading.

    Edit: I have both ebooks and paper books.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, Jules Verne: Read this years ago. Wasn't impressed on rereading it. Three men captured on Captain Nemo's submarine (only the 4 of them have speaking parts in the book) spend months debating a possible escape attempt while seeing many strange things; Nemo seems to hate the world, but Verne offers few clues explaining why he is as he is. Finally, the trio escapes and the sub is pulled under in a giant whirlpool. Calling it a "novel" seems a stretch. More like a bad J.J. Abrams movie (if that's not redundant) One noisy, shiny episode after another.

    The Song of Solomon, by Toni Morrison. I just finished it for English class two days ago. Incredible book.

    Ah, Game of Thrones.

    It starts off pretty boring, but it's worth it.
