So I've been in love before, but this time. . .
Let's talk about that a moment - I love "Ready Player One" - What a fantastic geek book. I also have a new love for Wil Wheaton's voice. (I know, right? I didn't think it'd happen either, something about guys who read to me.) I like to imagine that he's not as cocky as he seems in "Big Bang Theory". I hope I'm right about that. Also, Wil is in my circles on G+ and I like it that he's a Reddit junkie. And lately when I say "It's read by Wil Wheaton to people," I actually say "WWWHHHHeaton" in reference to Stuey. (Sorry Wil, but it's kinda funny)
Anyway - "Ready Player One" has so much reference to the 80's, it would be hard to anyone my age to not love the book. It's about a guy named Wade Watts in the year 2044, and our world is falling apart. Oasis is a virtual world that was created by James Halliday. Halliday has hidden Easter Eggs throughout his planets in the virtual world that will win a person his entire fortune.

I'm only about half way through right now, so I'm not sure how it ends.
