Laughing You'll be happy to hear I fell for that.

I'm really enjoying the New Sun so far, though progressing more slowly than usual.
(Something to do with trawling through mountains of interesting discourse on this cool place I found on the net.)

Yeah, it's a great series. Not exactly easy reading, but I do love it.

A friend of mine emailed me a guide to navigating NPR 100 Science Fiction and Fantasy books.It's good for some laughs.

I screwed myself reading book of the new sun because i kept expecting the story to go in a certain direction. it didn't go that way and i kept reading faster and faster expecting something particular to happen. when it didn't i got frustrated and i think i stopped after the third book, or maybe i skimmed to the end. i need to re-read more carefully next time, accepting that what i want to have happen doesn't...

OK, I've said this elsewhere, but I'm not really that big of a fan of sci-fi and fantasy - I just read a few books that I like rather than focus on those genres.

Looked over the results to see which ones I had read (didn't expect it to be too many)

#1 Lord of the Rings
#2 Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
#4 The Dune Chronicles (well, I've read Dune anyway)
#6 1984
#9 Brave New World
#13 Animal Farm
#14 Neuromancer
#20 Frankenstein
#24 2001: A Space Odyssey
#30 A Clockwork Orange
#36 The Time Machine
#39 War of the Worlds
#44 Ringworld
#46 The Silmarillion
#58 The Chronciles of Thomas Covenant
#61 The Mote in God's Eye
#90 The Elric Saga
#96 Lucifer's Hammer

More than I imagined I would find on this list (1Cool, but there are a few I no longer own and will probably not read again (The Larry Niven books and the Elric books)
