I'm Back

I took a few days away from blogging while getting over a rather nasty case of a stomach virus and the flu. Yes, I had both at once. Lucky me. I'm also behind on my blog reading so you may see me popping up on your blog over the next few days, commenting on week-old posts.

I did do some reading and I finished Matters of the Blood--which I enjoyed--and I'll try to get a review up tonight. (I also read a short mystery called Access Denied, which is part of the Turing Hopper series.) For my next review, I'm going to take a turn away from urban fantasy. I'll either get out my copy of The Name of the Wind and resume reading that, or I'll get on over to the library and pick up that copy of The Sword-Edged Blonde. When I'm finished with those, I'll be ready for some science fiction. Maybe Grimspace; I've read a lot of good reviews about that novel.

Welcome back.

"The Name of the Wind" is one of the best books I read so far in 2008.

I'm so glad you're feeling better! That's the kind of 2-for-1 that no one needs. ; )

Take care of yourself!

Glad you're on the mend! I've read Grimspace fairly recently and really enjoyed it. In fact I have the second Jax novel Wanderlust in the TBR pile now I enjoyed it so much!

"The Name of the Wind" is a great book; and if you ever get a chance to see/hear Patrick Rothfuss at a con, you should go. I've been on a couple of panels with him, and he's incredibly funny.

Glad you're feeling better. Oooo I vote Grimspace. I love the cover and the idea.

I've been following Pat's blog for a few months and he is very funny. That's probably why he has such a lively blog.

Wow; lots of "votes" for Grimspace.

Glad to hear you're feeling better! I've been hearing great things about The Name of the Wind, looking forward to your thoughts on it.
