Hi I just finished A Game of Thrones and I must say that I was very impressed. After vowing not to start an incomplete series after Jordan, I couldn't avoid the hype. I was very pleasantly surprised. I am very interested to read the next two in preparation for release of the fourth in March.
While I await the big brown truck to deliver the 2nd and 3rd to my house, I am going to read Bleak House by Dickens. I usually read a fantasy then a classic then a fantasy again. If I don't all the fantasy books tend to run together in my mind. Better to keep em separated.
Hopefully I will get to reread LoTR before the TTT release though. Don't think my schoolwork will like that though. DrB

I stopped reading Ash on page 300 - not because it is bad! But because it is sooo good and I needed a break. I had a lot of other things on my mind and just could not go on at this very moment.
So I decided to go for a 'light' read: Harry Potter 2 and 3.
After those I started with 'Lord Foul's Bane' for the book club. :) But I am only half way through - I got married today so I won't have time to read any more before the discussion starts . . . :D

The day was very veeeery long. Between the family feast and the party with our friends we had some hours spare time, yet not alone. To relax I read and wrote in my favorite forum(s).
And I just had to tell the world . . . :)

Yes, also congratulations, Nimea! Halloween, eh?
A wedding, a partner....and a copy of Ash....sounds like a marriage 'made in heaven' to me... :D :D
It's also nice that you took the time out to let us know at the Forum, too.
Personally I'm amazed that you found the time to do any reading in the run-up to the event. As for afterwards, I also wish you luck there. Tackling Donaldson as a 'light read' is pretty impressive!

Thanks Sammie and Hobbit! :)
Uh, 'Lord Foul's Bane' is not 'light' - only Harry Potter. ;)
But the language Donaldson uses is wonderful . . . well, that is something for the book club.
And I definitely need a discussion about 'Ash' when I finally get through it!
