About meAvid Reader. Favorite reads are historical fiction, sf/f, mystery, world fiction, history, science, memoirs.
About my libraryI joined LibraryThing in July '06. Since then I have been adding only the new books I buy, and the older books that I read. I have over 5,000 books cataloged on an Access Data Base, and having to put tags on them all is a daunting task. I may do it at some point.
House Stark is the most influential and notable power in the North. From their stronghold at Winterfell, the Starks guard the old ways against the dishonourable and fractious houses of the Seven Kingdoms. Their devotion to honour and the old gods wins them few friends in the court of King’s Landing and beyond, but this very same dedication to tradition commands respect from the lords of the North. Those Northmen who bend the knee to Eddard Stark have been hard won with respect, devotion, and justice. His sons show signs that they too will be well-respected and beloved leaders in the North upon ascending to the lordship of this enduring and storied house.
