More than 2 years since my first post. I really have been too busy reading. In honor of the HBO Series and the long awaited release of book 5 in the "Game of Thrones" I have re-read all 4 of the books.. I must say with his cast of thousands George R.R. certainly makes it a job to keep up with who's who and who did what to who..But he does do a good job on keeping up with the Lions and the Wolves and who lives and dies. I have thoroughly enjoyed the books and the HBO series and I am eagerly looking forward to season 2, which should be A Clash of Kings. The great part about the TV show is George R.R.'s input and his long experience of writing and over seeing the writing of good TV (Beauty and the Beast, Twilight Zone the Series).
Before I got into re-reading the Game of Thrones I spent time devouring the first 2 books of Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy.. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played with Fire, I have not yet acquired a copy of the third book The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest due to financial constraints. I did watch all three movies thanks to Blockbuster.. If you are looking for some good thrillers read/see all three. Its a pity Larrson died before completing more books.
Speaking of dying let us raise a cup for Joel Rosenberg, Artist Jeffrey Catherine Jones, authors Joanna Russ, Diana Wynn Jones and Brian Jacques.

I must return to my favorite chair more books await me. Thank heavens for the monthly Library Sale. I promise I will not stay away so long this time.
