I’ve been very busy. Expect a longish post this afternoon. If you’re lucky.
I fell behind back in March on updating my reading list. Since then I’ve read the Ender’s Game series, the El Borak stories, and several other crappy fantasy books.
Short reviews of the two books I didn’t get around too:
Women in Old Norse Literature: This book was a slog to get through. It focused on the women in the sagas, and while there was good information on the daily life of women in Iceland, one can very easily see why it wasn’t the main focus for story telling. I’ll be honest: boring.
The Great Gatsby: I am guessing it’s because I’m over 30 and I just read it now for the first time, but this book was not “great.” Good, maybe, but I realize “The Good Gatsby” just lacks the ring to it.
I’ve updated the ol’ reading list to make it up to date.
