Monday Fun #24 (online link)

Alright, yeah, I'm late again, sorry. Forgot to do this earlier.

This one I ruthlessly swiped from flemco... hey, I live dangerously.

Game type: flash brain game

Time demand: fairly short

Cost: Free

What it is:

It's fairly simple, yet at harder levels still surprisingly difficult. The simple idea behind this game is that of displaying a letter, shape, object... whatever... from the top down, one line at a time. Almost as if you had, say, a small slit in a sheet of paper, then someone moved the object in question (or a silhouette of it) slowly up behind the paper, so that you would see the top bit, followed by the next, followed by the next... but never all at once, in a cohesive shape. You instead have to guess at the letter, number, or whatever, based on the lines you see in turn.

And... that's pretty much it, really. It's a simple idea, but pretty delicious as you get into it.

Give it a shot!

Anyone read...

So now that I've picked up a ton of urban supernatural books from Amazon, they're trying to shill even more in the gold box. And while I wasn't planning on starting even more series just yet, I'm curious about some of them for future reference (or in case they offer a good enough discount...)

So anyone read/have any opinions on/hear anything about any of these series?

Kate Daniels series (Ilona Andrews)
Quincy Morris Supernatural Investigation series (Justin Gustainis)
Nightside series (Simon R. Green)

Anyone? Anyone?

(And I guess I should get around to reviewing some of the others I've read...)
