^ Try to look past the obvious in the Bible. The shit that will come out are ten times more compared to Harry Potter's bad literature. Yet creationinsts take them for granted, as if they are meant to be literal. They are not!

Nothing in written form should be taken as it is. It always symbolizes something. It is NOT the literal form of an event or a person. On a concious level the Harry Potter books are easily digested material for kids with zero knowledge of epic fantasy. But on a deeper level, it's subconciously telling them to cheat, lie, take advantage and expect others to do the hard work for them. That is just mean.

You know, from my limited knowledge of the series, that just about describes Voldermont and a bit of Harry.

^ Well, I get the same impression and I did mention that in the last paragraph of the review above.

Not really the whole book since I pick out my favorite stories, but I like to re-read some of the good old fairy tales during chistmas time. I gave away all of my fairy tale books besides my Andersen one. My father gave it to me and we read from it together during Advent every year when I was little. One of the most well know is "Thumbelina", I guess. So yeah currently reading various fairy tales by Andersen. 600 pages of awesome.

... Hmm I need a Grimm book, too.

Still reading The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, on recommendation from a friend. I'm having a difficult time getting through it, honestly.

As of current, I'm working on the Dresden files by Jim Butcher; currently on Dead Beat. I've also gotten back into the Saga of Recluse, specifically needing to start Mage-Guard of Hamor.

La traite des Slaves, l'esclavage des Blancs du VIIIe au XVIIIe siècle by Alexandre Skirda.

In English I suppose it would be translated as The Slavic Trade, white slavery from VIIIth to XVIIIth century.

Interesting essay on something that is barely mentioned in history textbooks.

Just breezed through Bonjour Tristesse by Françoise Sagan. It's short and well-written, but a tad bit clichéd seeing it over 50 years later. To be fair, the author was still a teenager when it was written.

Incidentally, my mother struggled through this book in French class when she was about that age, never realizing what it was actually about.

Finished Towers of Midnight.

Some...very convenient things happening to say the least but it's still pretty good. Mat's fight with the gholam was epic as was Perrin's fight with Slayer. I have no idea how Brandon is gonna wrap this all up in a single book though...

I need to get back to WoT myself... Crossroads of Twilight was one of the worst of the series, and so I have yet to start Knife of Dreams. I also intend to read Brandon's own works, most notably the Mistborn series and the King somethingorother series

The plot? Artemis goes insane (it says so on the inside3 cover so it's not a spoiler)
July 20, 2010 was when it was realeased.

I have officially given up on The Time Traveler's Wife. I just don't like it enough to continue with it.
