Literary Buffistas 3: Don't Parse the Blurb, Dear.
There's more to life than watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer! No. Really, there is! Honestly! Here's a place for Buffistas to come and discuss what it is they're reading, their favorite authors and poets. "Geez. Crack a book sometime."
Woo hoo! More books!
Oh my. The first thread name suggestion of mine that ever got selected. I'm so HAPPY!
Back in business, I see! I'll try to make more of an appearance in this thread than the last.
I'll try and turn off the TV and read more books than I have recently.
I have a giant stack of library books that I am reading. Two of them are for bookclub.
Meanwhile, in literary related news, I read in the Blood Horse that Winning Colors just gave birth to a filly by Orientate. This was her first foal since 1999. So I went over to the pedigree query and looked up her progeny. She has a daughter named Golden Colors who is in Japan and has had 4 foals (listed) one of them named Asfaloth and the other Elessar. This led me to look up Elessar (he is the 3rd of that name in the database.) He is the only colt of three thoroughbreds named Elessar listed. One of the other Elessars is a filly whose sire's name is Sindarin. (I distinctly remember another Tolkien-related horse name in a race sometime last year.)
Shiny new thread we got here. Nice!
So, Raq, did you like House of Leaves? I got it for Christmas, but it's daunting.
Oh, someone loaned that to me recently but I haven't gotten to it yet. I'll be intrigued to hear what people think.
Not Raq, but I loved that book. At some point I need to go back and read just the footnotes, which I ended up kind of skimming the first time around.
