A Kingdom Besieged by Raymond E Feist

Because I have a memory like a sieve, I figured I would post this and try to remember to update it (probably at the end of each month) so I can keep track of what I've read this year.

January

* Firelight
* The Crown Conspiracy
* Avempartha
* The Nyphron Rising
* The Emerald Storm
* Wintertide
* Guild Wars: Edge of Destiny

Snagged from quite a few people, but most recently from [livejournal.com profile] slaymesoftly

1. Favourite childhood book?
Hmm...it's impossible to pick one. I got a lovely collection of children's classics as a present when I was about 8 which I adored, my favourites being Around the World in Eighty days, Journey to the Centre of the Earth,  20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Gulliver's Travels, Swiss Family Robinson and other wonderful adventure stories, my least favourite being the more 'girly' books. When I was 10 I was given the Silver Brumby books by Elyne Mitchell which I guess are my absolute favourite childhood books as I have read them so many times I can quote large sections. I also loved and adored Jennie by Paul Gallico, The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper and The Narnia books (although the series I had only had didn't include The Magician's Nephew, so one day I must read that one).

2. What are you reading right now?
Um... a fanfic, actually, but I do have Guild Wars: Edge of Destiny that I just purchased from Amazon waiting for me to finish the fic (although in some way I guess it kind of counts as a fanfic too. lol.)

3. What books do you have on request at the library?
I like to own books, so I don't tend to use the library any more... haven't since my kids were quite young.

4. Bad book habit?
None that I can think of... a book rarely looks read after I finish with it. Oh...does reading to the exclusion of anything else including cooking dinner for my family count?

6. Do you have an e-reader?
Yes. I have an old Sony e-reader which has been used so much its buttons have worn out, so I treated myself to a Kindle last year and absolutely love it!

As I usually do at this time of year, I spent a very enjoyable (and rewarding) day poking through thousands of books at the Lifeline Bookfest with a few friends. I didn't expect to find many books because I was after hardcover versions of my favourite paperbacks, and the authors I was chasing are usually hard to find--well, it seems it was my lucky day, because I came home with several bags of books (including a whole heap that weren't actually on my 'to buy' list).

So I guess that sometime this week I need to sort out and rearrange my bookcase to make way for all the new hardcovers...what a terrible hardship! lol  Hmm, might need to talk to hubby about adding another shelf adjustment to accommodate more of the taller books.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.

My non-fanfic Reading List for 2008

Since I discovered fanfic, I don't read anywhere near as many books as I used to, I still read constantly, but more and more of my reading is fan fic (which saves an awful lot of money! lol). Having said that, I do still enjoy curling up with a good book, so here are the ones that I have read so far this year (or at least as many of them as I can remember).

I'm not going to write a review for them, a lot of them are re-reads, and all but one (*cough*The DaVinci Code*cough) I have thoroughly enjoyed.

Books read...

Eragon by Christopher Paolini
Eldest by Christopher Paolini
Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
