    I got mail today! I excitedly opened the packaged. It was heavy. It was the dimensions and weight of a sizable hardback book, I knew what this was. Much excitement. I have a couple people eagerly awaiting my receiving The Blade Itself so that I can start the series. They're so enthusiastic about this that they've offered to read it again at the same time, so that we can discuss it as I go.

    I open the package. I drop the spine of the book into the palm of my hand, with glee. Oh, no. Book two; which had the delivery date of roughly a week and a half later than book one.

    Well, at least it looks nice on the shelf.

    Tom Clancy's Clear and Present Danger is still a fun read, I guess.

    @faceless For some reason I didn't enjoy that series as much as I did. I love most of his work though - The Heroes and Red Country, damn.


  • Pitcrew

    @arkandel Yes. His standalone novels are just fantastic

    The Heroes is definitely on my list, though I'll be reading the series first. I've been told I have to read The Heroes because a character from the series has a larger(or main?) part in it and reminds them of one of my own, so I want to see what the hell they're talking about.

    @faceless The Heroes is a fucking brutal book. It's amazing, and without mercy.

    @Faceless -- I just started "The Blade Itself" a few days ago, though it's currently on pause. Since the boyfriend owns that one, I tend to put down books I own when my limited-availability ebooks pop up from my waitlist at the local library. (And my copy of "White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America" just popped up.)

    I should be back to it in a few weeks, if you want to go through it together!

    I'll be down for that. I'll be starting it once I get it. Which is projected as no later than the 21st, apparently.

    @faceless Yay!! Book buddies. Now which one of us is bringing the food and which one is bringing the booze?

    I'll bring the bourbon. All I have is some chicken with cheese, rice, and brocolli.
