I know I said I would do this long, long ago (well, at the end of the spring 2010 semester), but look, here it is! If you have lost your enthusiasm or just have no time, no hard feelings, I totally understand. If you want to read and occasionally comment, that's wonderful, please do to your heart's content. If, however, you would like to author posts from time to time, you may already be able to do so. If you don't have that permission and would like it, just comment to that effect and I'll figure out how to make it happen.
Okay, so maybe this is not the best time to ask, what with the semester well underway, but what are you reading? I've just finished Conspiracy of Kings, the fourth (perhaps final) Megan Whalen Turner book set in the fictional worlds of Eddis, Sounis, and Attolia. They are remarkably well drawn in terms of setting and character, and while book one, The Thief, may have been intended as a single story, the series momentum pulls you through to the end. It's personal and political, and funny, a combination I can't resist.
