Just finished Cold Days. I was worried for the dresden files because I did not like Ghost Story, but Cold Days was awesome!

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
The Christmas haul brought several new books!
Those I managed to read were:

Milton Hatoum - Orphans of Eldorado (transl by John Gledson)
David Grossman - Lion's Honey (transl by Stuart Schoffman)

Su Tong - Binu and the Great Wall of China (transl by Howard Goldblatt) is currently in progress.

Currently have Fables: Inherit the Wind, and The Graphic Canon vol. 1 as my comic reads.

Trampled Under Foot : the story of Led Zeppelin by Barney Hoskyns. An interesting read told through snippets of interviews. Quite entertaining and eye opening to say the least!

For the last few months I have devoted my reading to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. They are very difficult to get through.

They were written in the 1950s but the writing style makes it seem like they were written in the 1650s
