(no subject)

First of all, happy birthday Ann!

Alrighty then ;)

This is gonna be sort of a multi-purpose post. I haven't been online for a while, so purpose #1 is to let everyone know I'm still alive. I'm just really busy, as school starts tomorrow. *scream* How the hell did it sneak up on me like this? It seems like I should have at least another, oh, six weeks or so left.

I also need to update my 2007 book list. I should probably start lj-cutting this thing, but I love how beautiful it looks in all its glory.

Anyway.

I keep thinking that I'm missing one somewhere in there...

I'm working on Endymion by Dan Simmons right now (sequel to the Hyperion books), and I've just ordered three books from amazon: Walter M. Miller's "A Canticle for Leibowitz", Guy Gavriel Kay's "A Song for Arbonne" and George R.R. Martin's "A Game of Thrones". I've been having a great time reading various rants by limyaael, especially the one kvetching about Goodkind. Cause I think reading Wizard's First Rule killed off brain cells, and the sheer and inexplicable success of the series is just... well... inexplicable to me.

Was the last in the Darcy trilogy by Pamela Aidan any good? I gave up halfway through the second because it bored me stiff, but I've heard good things about the third.
The second one was kind of weird because it's that 'filler' for the missing time in P&P. But the third is pretty good... I liked it.
Your long list leaves me feeling like I've severely neglected my bookshelves ;) It also didn't help that I heard this week that the President pounds down close to 100 books a year. Seriously though, good for you, and that is a cool list of titles :)
Thanks! I'm a book addict. The only way I get through this many is that I read almost every waking moment ;) Nothing terribly intellectual, though (however, I must say that Dan Simmon's stuff always leaves me feeling like I have either somehow gained or destroyed brain cells).
