Ender's Game

So, I finished Ender's Game this last month and LOVED it!  I read it a few years ago and remember really enjoying it!  I knew it would be a quick read!  Anyway, I liked it so much I read the new direct sequel to Ender's Game, Ender in Exile.  It was good and a nice read.  Lots of space travel and alien adventures for me this last month.  I'll be posting my own list of books to read for 2011 here soon.  Not a lot of Science Fiction on my list.
