Aaaw, but it's awesome to re-read a book you don't remember much about. You know some things that happen, but can re-discover everything else and perhaps spot something new, you never saw before...

That's why it was such a delight to reread my Cherryhs this year because I had missed so much the first time all those years ago. Funny thing is, that I still loved them then already, but now I now why I did and do.

But I generally love to reread beloved books. Everytime you find sth new. Or you think it is new because you forgot it, but still enjoy it.

Sometimes I know that I love *insert various book titles here* but I can't exactly remember why or the details of what happened... I just know that I love them and look forward re-reading them. Unfortunatly I've already re-read all the books I wanted... u__u

...I always feel uneasy when making double-posts (since it's a big NO NO in a forum I'm in since more than five years) but I thought I'd tell you I just ordered the first book of the Seafort Saga. ^___^ ...not the one for 70 ... some people are just insane... do they hope to find a person who just wants the book so bad or something?

Good for you! I so hope you'll like it! I'd feel guilty if you didn't.

Aaaaaw, I'm pretty shure I'll like it. There are actually very few books I really don't like... most of the times I actually enjoy reading books I'll never touch afterwards ever again, so no wasted money there. ^^ And if my love for Roddy & Co. is any indication, there is no way I won't at least like it. I did already spoiler me a tiny bit... and I'm kind of amused by the main character marrying the first girl he mets. Three times. Somehow this amuses me- even if I'm dreading reading about it a little bit.

Well, first the book (and the other one, which I'll probably read first- I don't know yet) has to arrive. The snow is evil and blocks everything.  Tongue

It's not so bad and there are so many other wonderful characters and relationships.

When you will be reading it, would you be interested to come to my yahoo group to talk about it? It would take a little bit of all our OT rambling from this board.
And there we could do it in German, of course.

I do hope that winter will now become a little bit more normal. Dreadful to think that more people will have to suffer because of the snow and the cold.

I figured. Cheesy It usually depends on my mood whether it bothers me having to read a love story I'm not interested in, so we'll see.

Shure, if you tell me how to find it and how it works... I've never even seen a yahoo-group before (heard about, shure). And talking in German would be nice since I don't (or seldom) re-read my old posts here, because I'm afraid of my own mistakes. XD And I definitely know more words.

There is so much snow outside my window, I can't imagine where all the water is going to go... I see floods in our future. -.-" (YAY for living on a hill)

For me, the real love story of "Midshipman's hope" is not between Nick and his girl, but between Nick and X. I don't mean that in a slashy way, more a kind of "bromance".

I sent you a PN.

Slashy/Bromance... I don't care, I will enjoy it.  Grin  (...but I bet I end up shipping them ...FML)

Aaaaaw. I want that, too!


*sigh* Now I have three books with strange formats at home. Thin (~300 pages) Paperbacks several cm higher than the average book look just weird to me. They look like some kind of comic books on my shelf. o_0

Then let's see if you'll guess who X is.

*turning around to my shelf*
My Feintuch paperbacks are exactly the same heigth as my Lowachees. Easy to spot, they are standing right next to each other.

Oh, the Midshipman's Hope- format is fine. The Still, too. Well, I have The King as hardcover and it's huge... nut I was referring to three other books I keep shifting around my shelves because they don't fit anywhere... now I ordered a fourth book from the same publisher...*sigh* Ah well, some more and they won't look weird next to each other...

Almost everyone who is important in Nick's life appears in the first book already. And now I'll go and sit on my fingers.  Grin

If DHL would have been faster and delivered my second new book today, I would've started reading Midshipman's Hope today and saved the other one for the train. >__> And tomorrow is New Year's Day... curses. Somehow DHL AND Amazon are really slow as of late.

I'm actually reading The Great Gatsby finally...it wasn't required in my schooling. I'm loving the writing and the story even if I can't stand any of the characters. VERY UNUSUAL FOR ME.

I'm reading the final "Inda" book by Sherwood Smith, "Treason's shore". It's a little bit slow but I still like it because the characters have so grown on me. Also I'm fascinated with the different marriage cultures in this world and that almost everyone seems to be in some kind of love triangle.
