Dragons and Dreams

Eragon by Christopher Paolini

Yesterday I curled up on a big leather armchair and feverishly read Eragon by Christopher Palolini. What a book! I am just amazed that someone of 17 wrote this book and as soon as I read the last page, I shouted, “More! More!” I’ve already ordered the second book, Eldest While a lot of the book followed the standard fantasy storyline, this book is engrossing and wonderful. I just LOVED it!

24 books read to date.

6 more to go! Now I’m busy with Proust (yep, still reading him) and The Kite Runner

Spooky Reading

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

SO here I had a great post about the Historian and how much I loved it but I did a dumb thing and deleted it. In brief, I will say I love it and you should read it too!
