Thanks, this is fun! My hero is short, but only so I can have him go ouch when he's hit over the head and decide there have to be other ways to win a fight. I got a good score for him.

Okay, I'll keep following, then, and have just subscribed to your poetry blog which I didn't know existed. I prefer to follow from my dashboard, but you only seem to have the email option, so that's what I did.

So, you're closing down this blog for a year?

Wheel Of Time is about thirteen books long. Harry Potter is seven. And the first four can be read standalone, though you do need to have read the first to know what's going on. But you can stop anywhere along there if you feel you've had enough. Really, the only one that ends on a cliffhanger is the sixth and if you've read that far you will WANT to read the rest. If you're working in a school library and haven't read this series, you've missed out. ;-)

Lian Hearn is a pen name for Gillian Rubinstein, author of a lot of children's and YA books, who will be GoH at next year's Swancon. Tales Of The Otori is set in a universe in which ninja really can do all those magical things people here believed they could do. Well worth reading! She certainly has done a lot of research for her Japanese fiction.

You really should read Harry Potter some time. Just because it's hyped doesn't mean it's not wonderful. :-) It took me years to get around to Lord Of The Rings, another much hyped book, and when I did I was only sorry it had taken so long.

When you 're ready, of course. I once sent a copy of the first Harry Potter book to an Americsn pen pal(he was a Luddite who refused to go online). He had been going on and on about it, so I thought he should at least read it. His response was to hate it anyway, because the were no American characters in it. (Rolls eyes!)

Actually, I do like crime fiction, though I've never read these. I generally prefer whodunnits to thrillers. But it doesn't surprise me that Ms Rowling can do crime fiction well. When you think of it, each Harry Potter book was a mystery in its own right, with Harry, Ron and Hermione having to solve a puzzle before something dreadful happened in the wizarding world, if they failed.

I've just downloaded this and am looking forward to reading it - and,perhaps, writing my own review. My own family were very much affected by the Holocaust, so I have an emotional connection.
