Digital is the only format I don't own the books in, Lum. All the hardbacks, paperbacks and audio CD's but no digital I'm afraid.

I'm fairly sure there are pirate versions out there but I'm a good boy and don't indulge in such nefarious practices. :angel: *chuckle*

I know you did because you're a good boy too. :) I tend to listen to the audio versions nowadays, Lum, as it allows me to do other things while I'm listening. :angel:

I made it through the end of Children of Dune, Victor, I'm looking forward to continuing the saga. Slowly, savouring it much like a fine wine.

They are all under strict copyright, Nathan, so I'm not sure. And it's not the case that you will want to stop after the original Dune novel as the sequels are well worth reading. You're probably aware I love them all, the originals and the newer submissions. It's a lot of reading if you find them interesting, my friend. :angel:

Ah well, I was hopeful. :P I have vague memories of reading the first book as a child, and my dad adored the movie (despite also saying it was nothing compared to the book), so I saw that too. Of course, I was younger than 10 at the time and hardly understood a lot of what was going on... so I was interested to pick it back up and reread from the beginning - but I no longer have the books to do so. I'm sure I'll get my hands on them eventually. :)

I'm really pleased that you're managing to find some time, Scytale, considering how busy you've been lately. Savouring each book like a fine wine is just the way they should be read. :thumbup: :D

Well it seems that Dinosawer can help you, Nathan. :D He's a reliable sort, don't you think? ;) :angel:

Yaay, quite a few Stargate fans here :-)

A pointy stick was much in evidence in the latest Dr Who episode. It could have been written for me. :lol: I enjoyed the opening story of this new series. :thumbup:

With the "nothing will ever beat..."-thing start all fan discussions. IMHO, every franchise has pros and cons and shouldn't be compared with others. Everything comes to personal tastes and from that point of view also everything is debatable. You like B5 the most? Shiny! So should it be. B5 is fantastic and I already talked about it above. Why the station better than others (especially whatever)? Personal taste. ;)

Actually, I thought IronDuke's post would cause uproar from fans of other franchises, especially the star Wars fans, Lum. :P

I'm biased, I admit it. I have very special memories of Babylon 5. :angel:
