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.

*strangely touched*

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!

Best wishes

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!

Best wishes for your marriage Nimea!

Ditto! :D (Though I hope you don't look anything like your avatar thought...)
