Found note in an old book... warms the cockles of my bookish heart...

"..a small drop of ink, falling like dew upon a thought"--Byron

Thanks to Lesa, the only book reviews I'll be doing the next year involve a thirteen book series which I'm sure you all know about and if you don't, go here to see how excited she was about book thirteen. If you want to buy them all, go here.
Disclaimer: Don't blame me if you want nothing more than to lock yourself in your closet with a flashlight and a stack of books for the foreseeable future.   Great books.  I can hardly stand to be here long enough to post this because while I am posting this, I could be reading!  
Still, somethings need bookish peers to appreciate.  I thought this one was one of them... and may I just say:

Would you?
If you would and but need some more inspiration: Take a look at this post by LotusReads


  1. Oh, I just love that quote!!

    The Wheel of Time is just about my favorite series of all time-- I'm so excited you like it! Isn't it completely absorbing?!

    Did you finish book 2 yet? I have about a quarter of book 13 left.
    It is taking me longer than usual to finish since life keeps intervening but I read a couple of chapters tonight-- two independent but related battles fought in the dream world-- very touch and go but resolved successfully-- so exciting!

    I included several characters from the series in a top ten picks post last spring-- you may not have been reading the blog then-- I don't think there are any spoilers and I'd like to see if you agree-- here is the url if you want to check it out:

    My second post when I started this blog last Jan was about book 12-- don't read it cause there is a spoiler-- but isn't that funny, I began the 2010 with WoT and I'm ending 2010 with WoT!!

  2. Ooh, the Robert Jordan series. I started this a few years back but only got up to book 7 or 8. One day I will go back and read them all again, in fact your reviews will probably inspire me to do so!

    Hope you enjoy them :)

  3. Lesa: I just finished book two last night, but the weird thing is, I already want to re-read it and actually might. Book two is "driving", meaning everyone is running, and I found myself reading that way.
    No spoilers! 13 books?! I swoon. If I find out whats going to happen that might diminish. Such a treat!

  4. Sam: Aren't they good? I absolutely love them. They're
    everything you want a good adventure to be. If you do decide for sure to start reading let us know.

  5. Tracy: Yes, some of the books are very 'driving' and some are more 'waiting'-- I love the dynamics of this series.

    I ran across a cool scifi/fantasy blog recently that has been hosting a WoT bookclub of the whole series all year-- wish I had found it sooner! It would have been fun to reread and discuss all the books.

  6. I loved the first few WOT books but after about maybe book 5 or 6 there were some plot developments that put me off them altogether and I've let them go. But my hubby still reads them and enjoys them. My problem with getting a literary tattoo is which quote to pick? So many to choose from, how could I pick the best :-)

  7. I agree, Juju. I'd be like Phoebe from the sitcom Friends who went in to get a tattoo and came out with a single black dot. She called it earth, just smaller.
