About meWhat do I want to say about myself? Hmmm...well I obviously loved books. That's a given. My reading is primarily only fantasy, and looking at my books in my library and my tags, that's a another given. I'm obsessed with dragons really bad, and looking at my pictures, you could tell that already...I'm an open book I guess. Yup, that's all you need to know about me.

And here are my threads for the 75 book challenge:

About my libraryIn my library you will find mostly fantasy and scifi books. Not a big surprise there. But a few others are also there like Cris Crutcher.

I also seperated my library tags into four parts, author, mood (action, adventure, humor, romance), any special items, and what kind of book. The latter I've split it into nonfiction (which actually isn't many) and fiction. I base my fiction into smaller categories which are the following.

1. alternative reality- Realistic or Historical fiction that has fantasy in it.

2. Realistic Fiction-can happen, but is still fiction

3. Historical Fiction-if I feel that there is a lot of history involved, I'll put this in this category. Usually in my case, it could also be fantasy, but since historical fiction is in real places, I'll put them in this.

4. Fantasy-cannot within any possible means can this happen. Almost always in made up places.

5. Science Fiction-Can happen with the technology and the scientifical proof. It's different from fantasy because there is a very slim possibility that it can happen.

6. Fiction- classified as none of the above.

Also, there is my wishlist, which is huge. And every true book lover knows that you will never completely read all the books you want to. I'm no exception.

Here's my rating key:

1/2 = Time waster
* = Why did I read it?
*1/2 = Could be better.
** = Not the best book I've read
**1/2= OK, I guess.
*** = Somewhat good.
*** 1/2 = Good.
**** = This is great.
**** 1/2 = This is awesome.
***** = This is greatly awesome.

And here's my quote on the book I'm reading or just recently read. This will be updated quite often. Sometimes it may funny, serious, a whole conversation, anything I think that's good enough.


The tears I feel today
I’ll wait to shed tomorrow.
Though I’ll not sleep this night
Nor find surcease from sorrow.
My eyes must keep their sight;
I dare not be tear-blinded.
I must be free to talk
No choked with grief, clear-minded.
My mouth cannot betray
The anguish that I know.
Yes, I’ll keep my tears till later;
But my grief will never go

-Menolly’s “Song for Petiron”

Hello? Anyone there? Hope all is well.
nothing
Happy new year, and may you have many happy good reads in 2012! - Karen
Hey, Nathan, just dropping by to wish you a Merry Christmas :) Hope you have a wonderful time with all those around you.
Do you ever come to Atlanta to Dragoncom ?
Nathan - if you want I can send you my fairly battered paperback copy of Slaughterhouse 5, just PM me your address. You'll be able to read it during next year's Banned Books Week!

That is alwas nice to know I thought that i was the only one
I read a few Harry potters but then some other book caught my eye. I kinda have that problem!
I think I am going to try to read the whole hardy boys series ( if I don't get tired of them by like the 15th!)
cool! I have read
~when you reach me
~torn
~the book of time
~hardy boys the secret panel
they were all good!!
hey! I haven't herd from you in a long time. Read any good books?
Well, then, that's good!
Hey DragonFreak, are you okay? It's been so long since I've seen any posts from you and I've been worried. I enjoy your posts. I hope you are not unhappy?
Many Happy Greetings right back at cha, Dragon! :*)

Comments are constant cause of delight for me so I am more than happy to direct them back to you, my friend!
So when you say:

"Nice seeing you again! Thanks for responding, you pretty much made my day."

I can reply LIKEWISE!! Comments always make my day and I'm delighted I made yours as well! :*)

Also, regarding the Latin; you would most likely be amazed at how many Latin phrases you are already familiar with. For example:

" R. I. P." which decorates nearly every gravestone; is shorthand for "Reqiescat en Pace"; OR, in English (you guessed it! Rest In Peace.
" Veni, Vidi, Vici" Sound familiar? "I came, I saw, I conquered".

*big grin* See? So give yourself more credit, man! You know more than you think you know; you know? Lol. ;)

Besides, you have excellent reading taste, leave intelligent and kind responses, and are now friends with Me! So right there you are already given 3 things on which to commend yourself. Haha. :*)

Much Bliss, Sunshine & Purrs,
~Pandora~
P.S. Don't give up posting on your Reading Thread; OR MINE for that matter! You have too much to add to stay lurking in that dark corner. Besides, the Wallpaper is terrible and I've been warned there might be mold growing in that vicinity of said Lurking Area! *grin*

.

Well hello again! :)

"I do like the Dragonsinger quote too. I need to change the quote into a one in a book that I read more recently, but I haven't yet. I consider most people on GD to be my friend, since you all are so wonderful! And that definitely includes you!"

Awww thank you! Now look, you're making me blush! ;)

"Also, what does "Nihil Desperandum" mean? I tried looking it up, but I didn't get any results. I'm not an expert on any language except, well maybe not even English."

It is a Latin phrase roughly translated meaning "Never Despair"; sometimes spelled "Nihilum Desperandum"; so mayhaps that's why your search didn't turn up the desired result. :*)

Very happy to be your friend, Dragon, and your presence on my Thread (even of the lurking variety) adds to my Joy, so thank you for that too! :*)

~Pandora~
this is true
OOOOO! that would be cool too!!

Hi Nathan,

Thanks for the interesting libraries add. It's not really a feature I use but I do appreciate it if somebody adds mine.

Regards,
Dave.
Have you tried the ink series by her also??
have you tried reading dragon rider it has a lot to do with dragons and other creatures
Yup - those are the right ones.

Thanks for the update - I'd been meaning to do it, but I've been keeping busy with writing and book stuff.

Gotta love the Green Dragon community for their helpfulness. :)
Hi there,

I got the ARC of 20 Years Later you won in the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program in the mail last week so you should be receiving it shortly.

Thanks again for your interest in Emma Newman's book!

Thanks,

Well, thank you! I get my witty comments from the depths of my own diseased brain, lol. I used to do them with Myspace bulletin (when that was a socially relevant medium, ha-ha) and my friends & family got a kick out of them. So I continue them on my blog, mostly as a time-filler when I can't think of anything else to say. Glad you're enjoying it! :D
Congrats on your first ER win!

Madeline
Finally getting back to you about your comment about my pic. :) Thanks for the comment. It always makes my day when I see someone has visited my site. It does seem Pern-ish, doesn't it. I hadn't thought about it before, but your right. I love how you obviously love dragons. Me too!
