Kelly, it's always to have a good book to bury your nose into in case you have a pesky seatmate. :twisted:

Sorry, Red, I should have posted here about the new Duncan Sarkies thread. Looks like you found the better book deal, though. :lol:

I love sci-fi type of reading...(not as extreme as the Yeast Wars ; The Bronco Years :lol: )

One series I fell in love with from the 'young adult' reading section.
"The Bartimaeus Trilogy."

I flew threw the series in no time flat, laughed and was kept bay and then cried (a little) and then went..."Phew there should be a 4th 5th 6th book!!!"

Anyway for what it is worth, it is good reading. Regarding Magicians in modern day England that have supreme powers carried on from the master magicians of old, not the play of hand magic tricks, those are amatuers....

Anyway each of these magicians can conjure up demons of various degree depending on their particular skills, etc. its a story that follows a young magician apprentice.

Funny enough, it is nothing like it. The story is about the young boy kind of secondary, but Bartimaeus is the nasty demon from way way way back in Egyptian times that the boy conjured up..., the entire story is from his point of view.

I ordered my copy already. :D


By the way folks, if you go back 'round about page 4, you'll see Sherry's comments on Two Little Boys. She started reading it last summer. Wonder if she ever got through it...

Wow, the eruption of the volcano finally directly affected me - I just got a message from the folks I bought "Two Little Boys" from. They notified me that the delivery of my book would be delayed because of the volcano ash and the closed airspace. I'm now supposed to get it in a week or two. :? :waiting:

I'm reading 'The Lacuna' by Barbara Kingsolver at the moment.....only 67 pages in but really enjoying it.

Love Frida Kahlo, and historyish books. (Can't find the geek smiley)

ZWP, if you click on the View more smilies, the Geek is about halfway down on the right, just above Albi. :albi:

I haven't started my summer reading yet. :sofa: I've got a few books to choose from, I just need to make a decision and get to it.

The Steig Larsson books are quite good summer reads: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire. They look daunting because they're so big, and they tend to start out slow, but they are worth sticking with. I recommend them, but not if you're a prude or very sensitive about sex crimes...

Nah, just kidding. I'm not. I am. I'm not. I am.

I've heard of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, sounds interesting.

Am waiting to read the third book, which is with my mother-in-law right now. I cringe when I think about her reading these - she's a very proper 80+ year old lady. :shock:
