Just finished Fool Moon. I will now proceed to be post-book irritated and snappy.
Curse you, books, and how lonely I feel when I am done!!

Oh you won't be lonely when you work in a library next time Cen? Thousands of them to keep you company, not to mention the e-sources.

DP: Also why I quit too much fiction reading. You feel like you're friends with the characters, and BAM it all ends. Akin to a breakup if we take it to extremes.

Except this is probably the first fiction I have been reading in half a year. It's amusing how little you get to read, when you are at school... And of course I left the next book at home, so I either have to continue the lost symbol, or go about being annoyed for a while.

I just miss the adventure. Being sucked into the story and stay there. I guess it could be considered becoming friends with the characters, or at least developing some kind of kinship, but right now I just... don't want to be here, in reality, where is is cold and raining.
I would rather be in Chicago where it is cold and raining and werewolves are killing people...
Mental health? What mental health?

Or rather, how little you read which agrees with you. I hate reading thick sets of notes at a go and then revising it three times for three tests in the year.

I guess there are e-versions of the book if you really are desperate, but I hate reading online since it feels all artificial to me, and anyway, I'd rather break my sanity than the draconian internet laws here. If I knew my librarians were all so nutty, I wouldn't have stepped within a ten mile radius of that place.

I have never been much of a reader of facts. Or, well, that isn't true. Rather, when I got the taste of fiction, it tasted so much better than the facts. Even more so, when that is all I can read... Scientific research, theories...
When all I want to do is practice my escapism.

But I might get the chance to get some of this back during the intern ship. Might have school on the side, but I should have more time for... me-time.

As for e-books... Not my fiction. I am a traditionalist when it comes to fiction, it should stay book based.

Don't know the English translation of the title of the book, but it was written in the style of LOTR, but easier.
