FF: Making Time to Read

Jim’s finishing off a long holiday, but even with that pleasant distraction there’s been some time to read.

Keladry Poses With Her Namesake

For those of you just discovering this part of my blog, the Friday Fragments lists what I’ve read over the past week.  Most of the time I don’t include details of either short fiction (unless part of a book-length collection) or magazines.

The Fragments are not meant to be a recommendation list.  If you’re interested in a not-at-all-inclusive recommendation list, you can look on my website under Neat Stuff.

Once again, this is not a book review column.  It’s just a list with, maybe, a bit of description or a few opinions tossed in.

Recently Completed:

First Test: Protector of the Small, Book One by Tamora Pierce.  Audiobook.  Re-read.  Warning…  This book has a tough first third.  Pierce does not pull her punches as to how hard a road Keladry will need to travel to become even a page, much less achieve her dream of becoming a knight.

In Progress:

The Wind in His Heart by Charles de Lint.  Over halfway.  Enjoying!

Page: Protector of the Small, Book Two by Tamora Pierce.  Audiobook.  Re-read.  Obviously, I’m hooked all over again.

Also:

Wolf’s Head, Wolf’s Heart by Jane Lindskold.  I want to go visit New Kelvin for real.
