I forgot to do this yesterday so forgive this addendum for being a little late.
I’m going to add another question to the list because I feel it needs it. Well, the current question #5 ends up being moved to #6 and this new question takes it’s place as it creates a much more logical flow to the questions this way. Yeah, yeah. I know the editor in me needs to shut up and stop making things difficult.
Anyways, here we go:
5 (revised). Is there a book, or books, that you haven’t yet read, that you’d really like to?
There’s always something new on the horizon to read. Right now, I plan on finishing “Inkheart” and by then the new George R. R. Martin novel “A Feast For Crows” should be out so I’ll carry on with that. Then there’s the new Harry Potter book in July and also it looks like another collection of stories set in the world of Garth Nix’s “Abhorsen Trilogy” is coming out shortly. I hear tell that Robert Jordan’s penultimate (here’s hoping) Wheel of Time novel, “Knife of Dreams” is out in October and that will be a relief to be one step closer to the end of that series. I like it but it’s just too damn long and convoluted these days. Once it’s all out I may attempt a full re-read of the series to see how it actually reads straight through. It could be interesting… then again I don’t know how I’ll be able to get past that bloody 20 page epic walk from Baerlon to Caemlyn from the first novel again *shudder*.
One novel that I keep meaning to read but haven’t got around to it yet is “The Rule of Four” by Ian Caldwell & Dustin Thomason. It’s a novel of historical fiction in a similar vein to Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” but from what I’ve heard makes the latter look like a Dick and Jane primer. I’ll read it and let you know how it fares. I also have an urge to read the Gormenghast Trilogy by Mervyn Peake comprised of “Titus Groan”, “Gormenghast”, and “Titus Alone” as well as a lot of G.K. Chesterton’s work, especially “The Man Who Was Thursday”, as I know he is/was a great influence on Neil Gaiman’s work and I always like seeing where things begin.
6. Spread the virus to some more deserving Bloggers…
(Apologies if you have been previously tagged)
I plan on infecting my wife with this virus as well as my friend, Felicia. I will also infect my friends Jon(Truth) and Tom(Fool) if and when they get off their arses and create useful blogs that I can comment in without issue.
