Well, I finished up Xenocide and have started Children of the Mind. Xenocide was great and, while it ended up with a few loose ends, I was glad about the surprises that were put in. Children will probably tie up those loose ends. I actually think that Children and Xenocide were originally planned as one book, but it got too lengthy and he split it up. Children is a short book, probably only paging about 1/2 to 2/3 of what Ender's Game, Speaker, and Xenocide paged each. It's looking well and has some interesting stuff. I hope to get through it by next week.
I've yet to finish watching the movie I wanted to watch. I'm about halfway through it, but I keep getting distracted. Plus, I still have to burn 4 CDs for my mom, 1 CD for a friend, and re-install some CDs into my computer since installing the new system. I've got to get myself on track here.
