Just how nerdy are we?

We're both reading books from the 'Song of Ice and Fire' series at bedtime. Side by side. She's reading book two, 'A Clash of Kings.' I'm reading book one, 'A Game of Thrones.'

(I've actually already listened to the audio book versions of all four of the current books in the series (Roy Dotrice is an awesome audio book reader, wut wut!), but Sarah's been enjoying them so much I've decided to start from the beginning and read the print versions as well)

At the end of the day, it's nice to lay next to each other, reading our nerdy books. Although it's distracting when Sarah holds her giant 'Clash of Kings' paperback in the air and says, "Hey, let's make our books kiss."

I love those books. Alot. I'm super-excited that HBO is making a TV series based on them.

If you want to continue your nerdy reading, I highly recommend the 'Night Angel' trilogy by Brent Weeks. They are seriously the best fantasy genre books I have read in a long time.


Plus they have Characters on the cover, so it's more appropriate when your books kiss.

Pete Dinklage is playing Tyrion, which is awesome because when I read the books he is who I pictured.

Granted, the list of actors appropriate for the role is a small one (ha!).

Those books irritate the fire out of me. Sure, they're good, and the characters are rich, but he...


...keeps killing them off! If you do it once or twice, it's exciting. If you keep doing it, over and over again, it's annoying.

But I agree with Innisanimate, the Brent Weeks "Night Angel" books are really good. I just got done reading them myself.
