Books that are better the second time around...

I just finished the Audible version of Larry Niven's Ringworld.  It's fantastic, and I recommend it to anyone.  I headed over to Powell's books and picked up the rest of the Ringworld series after noticing that what I thought was a trilogy now included a fourth book - Ringworld's Children.  I've read the trilogy before, many years ago and now I'm looking forward to rediscovering and just before the science-fiction channel comes out with the Ringworld Miniseries. The success of the entire endeavor is going to pivot on the casting of Louis Wu. I hope they don't screw it up.

I also picked up the compilation of Aaron McGruder's Boondocks - only the best comic strip since Bloom County.  I'm usually not a big fan of comic strip compilations, but this one is fresh and fabulous.

P.S. Thanks to Travis for his fantastic Amazon.com DHTML rollover code that I modified to work with dasBlog click through links.  Go get his code, and my mods are here.
