aw well, this is one of those rare days where, for a few reasons, my pages-read count is going to end up dipping to a bit less than what I almost always conquer (100+ pages per day). just a rough day, and anyway, I'm off for the next three days instead of two, so I can catch up like crazy, after a night's sleep.
the great news is: now that I'm 94 (wish it were more, soon it will be!) pages into Book Two of this Song of the Shattered Sands series...well, I really am starting to feel, with each page, with each scene, that this series maybe cannot be topped by anything other than The Lord of the Rings, when it comes to the Fantasy genre. it is just...wonderful. the whole thing, so far, has been just wonderful.
