“Ender’s Game” should be movie


Scott Hanselman lists out some of his favorite books that he’d like to see made into movies.  One of them in particular really hit a chord with me – “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card would be an *awesome* movie! 

P.S.  Anyone know how to create a simple URL to a particular book on Amazon?  I browsed to this book, but the URL is really long and gnarly – I’m sure I’ve seen shorter ones on other folk’s blogs.

    Hi, Bruce: This URL works for "Ender’s Game" : http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0812550706/103-3893473-1300632

    As far as I know, you need the number after ASIN and the ISBN number, which appears at the end of the URL. Everything in between is personalization junk and may be deleted.

    Thanks! Its cryptic, but it seems to work.

    concur, excellent, excellent book.

    For making a short URL, nothing beats http://www.tinyurl.com

  5. With Amazon all you need is the number…so: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0812550706 works fine and is shorter, although http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0812550706/diabeticbooks gives me money 😉
