Re: So long, Ender's Game!

Nobody has even mentioned this controversy. It may have to do with the promotion aspect of the movie. I think it's probably "old news" to many of us here, and I think, at least personally, that we've accepted the fact that authors are people too, and they can have and express their own politics, op...

Re: invisible bookshelf

how about a Murphy bed that folds up into a book shelf, kinda like taking books under the bed to a new level
Personally, I'd prefer the "hidden bed behind the bookshelf" ... you'd open the bookshelf like doors and there's your Murphy bed behind it!

Re: what is sentinent?

OH... sentient... the title of the thread is apparently misspelled. :( I think you can change that though.

I think, as far as "how we can define sentient" goes, though... I'd say "any being that is clearly aware of itself and able to ask questions concerning its existence."

Re: When did you read Enders Game

I read it within a year or two of it coming out... so my age was never an issue: I was already over 18.

However, I read it aloud to campers who were about 10-12... and I certainly didn't think it was inappropriate. TV and movies and even games are at LEAST as violent, usually even more so.
