I have a great admiration for Robin Mckinley, who has a fabulous blog that I read regularly. She's real and human and funny; it makes me glad that one of my favorite authors turned out to be someone that I can truly like.
One of the things she has on her blog is an interactive book list--people are welcome to comment on favorite books they have and what they like to read, etc. As I've got a pretty decent readership base (there are between 350-500 of you visiting each day, depending on your moods), I figured, why not do the same for LIT SOUP? It is *ostensibly* about books after all. =)
(And soup, but we'll get to that in a few days, when I next make miso soup, make it properly the Japanese way with fresh dashi, and give you the pictorial tour of me doing so.)
Anyway, getting back to the books. In the comments to this thread, feel free to post what you like to read: favorite authors, favorite books, mini book reviews, anything book-related. In fact, consider it an open pimping thread for all things books. Tell me what I should be reading, if I won the lottery, and was rich enough to do nothing but read all day. I'll be linking to this on the sidebar later today, so it will be always accessible for new comments and discussion.
And to start us off, I'll mention that I'm currently slowly reading KUSHIEL'S SCION by Jacqueline Carey, which I'm totally digging. Imriel's voice in the book is very real, and while he's not quite as fascinating a character as Phedre, I like his story so far.
Now have at it!
