So I've read about half. Not bad for someone who mainly reads fantasy. I own a couple of the others, but they're languishing on my to-be-read shelves.

I've only read two of the, but I loved them both. Grass and Air. Hm... I sense a theme here.

Oh, wait, I also read Spin. Though it was a little technical for my usual reading, I still really enjoyed it.

Of course Paul has probably read more than half. He's a reading machine.

Sorry to miss you at Denvention. You were there in spirit though, whether you wanted to be or not. Bhahahahahahahah
