    Oh Nessa! The Well at the World's End is wonderful. Not easy to ready but even as a kid I loved the florid victorian style and just dove into this one when Ballentine released it in the classics series in the '70s. Enjoy!

    Oh, I envy you Morelen if you haven't red Legacy of the Drow yet, it's great! Wheel of time is great to, but I like Drizzt and the drow elves more than Rand...^^

    I'm gonna re-read THe Dark Elf Trilogy. And then some other books I wait to come, like paths of darkness and the hunters blade trilogy, they'll come soon to my bookstore....I hope....

    I just finished the 6th Harry Potter book.
    I am now working on a book called A Great and Terrible Beauty, by Libba Bray. Well, I think that's her name.

    Definitely more by Patricia McKillip. After reading Ombria in Shadow, I was blown away by the way she creates a world and character. Very good stuff. She wrote a lot actually and I would be tempted to buy them even just for the wonderful art of the covers.

    I'm reading The Da Vinci Code myself at the moment and it is such a page turner I can't believe it. Every chapter leaves you in suspense and you read another and another in eagerness to find out what happens. A brilliant, brilliant book.
