And what shall we talk about today?
My reading is in a rut, I can find few books that I REALLY REALLY want to read. I was reading a travel book but after 50 pages found that my interest wasn't being held and ended up rereading the Diamond Throne by David Eddings.
I'm regretting this today because there are a few books I really ought/want to read/reread. (The Diamond Throne is ok I might add but not sure why I picked it).
I have a copy of Guy Gavriel Kay's "The Last light of the Sun" to read. I have had it in my to read pile for a few years. I've done this with Kay before and when I eventually pick it up I know I'll enjoy it. Kay is an excellent "Fantasy" writer and if you get the chance read "Tigana", "Song for Arbonne" or the "Lion of Al Rassan".
I could have reread Vernor Vinge's "A Fire Upon the Deep" - I've been meaning to for years. Why have I not bought Stephen Donaldson's "Fatal Revenant"?
I'm annoyed that I can't get hold of a copy of Connie Willis' - The WInds of Marble Arch short of paying £20 plus for the hardback. When/will there ever be a paperpack copy of this? There are a few other Willis about but all are hardback 120 page novellas and I am not paying £14 for 'em. Maybe I'll reread "Passage".
When I do go into book shops nothing excites my interest.
Anyone care to recommend some good books?
