I’m short and like reading.
and playing video games.
and big expanses of green to run around in.

    Sottai,

    if you haven’t already, read Caroline by
    Gaiman.It is kick-ass instead of being long-ass like Jonathan Strange,whose fine print I’m just too myopic too read.How is it,though??

    • sottai said

      I quite like it so far. The first half is a bit slow, and ponderous, but it builds up really well into the second part of the book.
      It also has these long, detailed, fictional footnotes detailing academic research on magic that are completely bonkers and brilliant.

      Caroline is on my to-read list -I realized I’d read no Gaiman except a bit of Neverwhere and the Sandman comics. This had to be remedied. =)

      yo, it’s Coraline, not Caroline.

      Is this the one the animated movie is made based on? The movie is fantastic, and extremely creepy to boot!

    • sottai said

      The very same. The movie is fantastic, yes. =)

    Oh,does it?!shall take a second look,then.i ended up picking up Pullman instead – The Golden Compass.Which was so incredible,now I’ve got to read the other two.

    Misspelt the Gaiman.It is actually Coraline.

    Many thanks,I shall.

    I just finished that part in The Subtle Knife where Lyra looks at Will and says,you HAVE got a daemon.:)

      Hehe.I remember finishing the entire series over one manic weekend.

      I tend to start pacing, walking in brownian patterns when I’m really engrossed in a book: So, potentially, if I attached a pedometer to myself when starting a book, I could quantitatively measure how much I liked it. Hmm. Must try this sometime. =)

    :)What a thought!

    It almost never happens to me while I’m reading,though in between and after-yes.I guess,it’s an impulse to physically mime one’s head
    running in and out of the pages,if that makes sense..

    yay, recommendations for fantasy. (its so hard to find people who read fantasy!) i totally recommend the Night Watch trilogy (which has 4 books) by sergei lukyanenko. total genius. and the Bartimaeus trilogy by jonathan stroud if you haven’t yet. i read Jonathan Strange ages ago but i remember thinking that there were strange commonalities between susannah clarke and jonathan stroud.

    anyway, just thought i’d share the fantasy joy.

    p.s. nice blog.

    • sottai said

      =)I’ve been trying to start the Night Watch cycle for years now. The local bookstores insist on stocking up on Books 2, 3, and 4 – but NEVER book one. I should just give up and buy them online.

  7. Give Hellboy a try. great literature. horrible artwork though.

    Spawn is the veritable opposite.

    You are so awesome! I do not think I’ve truly read a single thing like this before.
    So wonderful to find another person with unique thoughts on this issue.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This site is something that is required on the web, someone with
    some originality!
