I am still reading books!
Much slower now, mind you.
I think I was linked -- I can't recall by who, if it was you tell me and I'll credit you -- to Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America
by Jeff Ryan when I talked about wanting to play more video games, something I have not quite yet achieved (btw, Super Mario for the DS, I can't get past the very first world with Yoshi. Fucker won't run in a straight line, I hate these new 3-D worlds). ( Suepr Mario, by Jeff Ryan ) Final Verdict:
The first third of the book is awesome, as well as the last quarter. Be prepared for a slog inbetween. Still, that first third is totally worth it, and if you're really into console gaming you might get more out of the rest than I did. Plus you'll have fun picking out the names of games and characters that seem like old friends.
