No "The", just Watchmen.

And yes, yes it is. How far in it are you?

Just finished up with Feast for the Crows by George RR Martin a little while ago, now im just waiting for A Dance With Dragons to finally come out. I'm pretty sure it's about a year overdo also.

I just got done finishing up the Sample chapter a few minutes ago. It's on his official site and found at this link

I just finished Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America (by Barbara Ehrenreich) for my American studies class.

Pretty much this journalist decides to try out what it's like to be entering the work force after theoretically losing welfare benefits and/or getting a divorce just to see if she could make ends meet, like normal working class people do, on little to no education, and on a maid, waitress, or Wal*mart employee's salary.

She failed every time, despite having her own car, no children, and $1300 of her own money set aside to work off of when she needed anything. She also broke character several times.

Right now I'm reading With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa (by E.B. Sledge) which is a memoir about being a marine in World War 2. Reading it for history.

After that I've got Tortilla Curtain (by T.C. Boyle) for American studies.

Finished Tortilla Curtain and got halfway through Old Breed before I had to skim it for answers on my paper. I may finish it somewhere down the line, but I don't think it will be anytime soon. It gets pretty gruesome at parts.

Anyway, other books I've completed lately:
The Boys: The Name of the Game (Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson)
1602 (Neil Gaiman, Andy Kubert)
Usagi Yojimbo: Mother of Mountains (Stan Sakai)
X-23: Innocence Lost (Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost)
Death: Time of Your Life (Neil Gaiman, Chris Bachalo, Mark Buckingham)
The Boys: Get Some (Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson)
And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks (Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs)

Am now working my way through a fuck-ton of assigned reading for my American Studies final on Monday.

Otherwise my reading for pleasure books at the moment are:
Water for Elephants (Sara Gruen)
Sweet Trade (Elizabeth Garrett)
Fables: War and Pieces (Bill Willingham)

I'm currently going through:
- Memories of my Melancholy Whores (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)
- Place of Dead Roads (William S. Burroughs)

I've been spending more of my vacation time knitting, though, since I can do that and listen to things like re-watching the first two seasons of House.

I still need to read Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, especially since I bought a first edition copy over Thanksgiving break. I guess I'm just waiting for it to come out on paperback because I don't want to mess up the copy I've got.

Well, I am reading Bard: The Odyssey of the Irish right now between class work and it is very interesting. I recommend it to any who like Celtic things.

Also starting Byzantium, Surprising Life of a Medieval Empire for my class on the subject. And reading In Glory's Shadow about the first woman to enter the Citadel for my women's history class.

Finished Bard, and it was AMAZING! Go and read it now!

Started reading Magician: Apprentice by Raymond E. Feist, book one of the Riftwar Saga (more fantasy stuff) and so far it is very entertaining, I hate putting the book down... even though the main character's name is Pug, which I just find silly.

Finished since last post:
Memories of My Melancholy Whores
The Woman Who Wouldn't
Evyione 5-9
Watchmen -- re-read it again so it'd be fresh in my mind
Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes
Sandman: The Doll's House
Sandman: Dream Country
Phoenix Endsong
Creatures of the Night

I just finished reading the Immortals After Dark Series (consisting of A Hunger Like No Other, No Rest For The Wicked, Wicked Deeds On A Winter's Night, Dark Desires After Dusk, Dark Needs At Nights Edge, and just released-- Kiss Of A Demon King) by Kresley Cole.

Now I'm reading "The Year of Rogue Dragons" trilogy.
I just finished 'The Rage' and now I'm on 'The Rite'. The third one is called 'The Ruin'. They're all by Richard Lee Byers. It's a really good series. One of the better ones I read in awhile.

Ahh speaking of good series'...this brings me back to The Bartimaeus Trilogy...(consisting of The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem's Eye, and Ptolemy's Gate)

But anyway. The YORD series is as follows--


The Rage:

"Renegade dragon hunter Dorn hates dragons with a passion few can believe, let alone match. He has devoted his entire life -- a life spent in the twisted body of a half-golem -- to killing every dragon he can find.

You might feel the same way if one of them had killed your entire family in front of your eyes, bitten you in half, and left you for dead.

Killing one dragon at a time is hard enough but when the irresistible impulse to slip into feral madness beginsto overcome not one, bit every dragon all across Faerūn, civilization's only hope may lie in the last alliance Dorn and his fellow dragon hunters would ever accept.

No matter what happens, the next year is going to be a difficult one for Dorn, and for Faerūn itself.

The Year of Rouge Dragons has come."



The Rite:

"Rampaging dragons appear in more and more places every day. And if the soulles lich Sammaster gets his way - and there's every reason to suspect he will - the disaster has only just begun.

But then all the dragons have to do to avoid the madness that drives them to kill is trade their immortal souls for an eternity of undeath.

The knowledge of that unavoidable truth may cause more madness among the dragons of Faerūn than the curse itself. For the dragonslayer Dorn, a dragon is a dragon wether or not it has skin. But what if it wears the skin of a woman he may just be falling in love with?

It's shaping up to be a difficult year for Dorn and his companions, a year that will bring all of Faerūn to the edge of cataclysm. The Year of Rogue Dragons rages on."



The Ruin:

"Rogue dragons become heroes when a millennia-old curse is revealed. But knowing the cause of a disease and curing it are two very different things.

And when most of the victims of the curse would rather not be cured of it at all, it gets a whole lot harder.

Far up in the frozen wastelands of the bitter north, a ruined citadel holds the key to the Rage, and dragons alive and undead, sane and mad, good and evil, converge there to decide the fate of their mighty race. For a half-golem dragonslayer ending the curse has become less a mission of duty than of love, and that only makes it more vital that he succeed.

It's been a difficult year for Dorn and the allies but before it's over more blood will be spilled. The Year of Rogue Dragons draws to a close."



I bet you all think I'm a loser
And sorry this post was so long xD

The Year of Rogue Dragons trilogy is a great read, I finished them awhile back. I love D&D novels, Forgotten Realms ones in particular. Have you read the War of the Spider Queen series? Byers wrote one of them.

No I have not :O
But I will definately look into it.
I like the short story in the YORD Anthology 'Wickless in the Nether'. In fact, I like the entire Anthology

Don't think I've read the anthology yet. Been meaning to.

So I am alternating between The Feminine Mystique (for class, but interesting) and Dragons of the Cahayogah by S. Andrew Swann. It is always interesting to see a sci-fi writer do fantasy... basically, a portal to another world (filled with magic and stuff) opens up in Cleveland, OH... plot ensues.
