Finished the epilogue of the third book. Took some 1100+ pages, but wow.


Need the newest book now! Mad


It'll never happen. He's gonna keep stringing you all along until he dies with the series unfinished....

What kills me (and probably Ipsa) is that he left a note at the end of the 4th book saying that he hoped to finish the 5th book in a year or so. That note is dated 2005. Here we are ~6 years later and the 5th book should be out on Tuesday.

Seriously though, if you have the time, read these books.

I read the first three many years ago - I enjoyed them, although I found the constant Machiavellian mindset of every single character got a little tedious after a while.

Well, I don't know about every single character... certainly not Hot Pie.

A Dance With Dragons

Martin's 5th book in the series. Nearly 300 pages in and he does not disappoint.

Ghost Story by Jim Butcher. Book 13 in the Dresden series. About half-way through. Enjoying it.

Finally got back on reading (last spring was a nightmare..) and I decided to start with something little bit easier, so now I'm reading We Bought a Zoo. Smile

Just about to start GoT here. I hope I have enough time to do it before school starts again.

I just finished some good stuff by Dan Simmons and China MiƩville.

I finished the first four in maybe three or four weeks. I'm about halfway through the fifth one, which I'm really enjoying. Just taking a while because I've barely been home for the past month and I can't read while in any sort of means of transportation.

I've been reading another Antony Bourdain book -- Medium Raw. Generally, I like this guy, his show on Travel Channel, and his first book Kitchen Confidential. This book, however, I feel is kinda meh.

I just noticed that Stephen Erikson has released the last book in The Malazan Book of the Fallen series (7th or 8th I think). The first few were tremendous fun, if a little all over the place - then I gave up because I kept losing track of what was going on since it really felt like he was writing the plot on the fly. I might get them all and take a run at them, since what he lacked in plot cohesion he certainly made up for with imagination and a good writing style.

I began reading Watership Down not too long ago and I do have to say it is an amazing work of fiction.

I think the TV series might catch up before the next book comes out!

Ugh. I'm not sure I want to get sucked in that deeply.
