Asimov's foundation series

Interestingly I think The Foundation series was the foundation of Sci-fi.

Its simply the best.

Oh man, enjoy! I loved that series. Sci-fi at its best.

This reminds me that it's been 10 years since I last read through the series.

Hey, me too! I'm halfway through the second one.

That's exactly where I am! The mule...

Finished it last night. Omfg.

Dude! I finished it on friday and raced out to get second foundation.

The entire second half of the book I had a strong feeling that's who the mule was going to be, but he's just such a good character and the fact that the story doesn't end there is fascinating! I'm pouding through the third one now.

Also, I love the fact the Futurama stole the idea for the holophoner from this. I just imagined magnifico as fry.

Just wrapped up the third one. Fucking killer, dude.

I switched user names. I'm halfway through, they just finished up with the mule and have started talking about the cat and mouse of the two foundations. I'll get back to you when I'm done.
