Another great year is in the books. I'll proclaim 2013 as the year of getting caught up on peridocials.
The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
I am still pledging to take the Wheel of Time series one book at a time. I am not committing to read the whole thing. But with this second installment I'll definitely be moving on to the third.
Jordan does a good job of moving the story forward and unveiling some new layers of the mystery in this volume. I can honestly say the ending portion of the novel had me turning pages at a furious pace, wanting to find out what would happen.
I get the feeling there are some fairly significant aspects of the story yet to be revealed, because if anything, this volume maybe pushed the story a bit too far in the context of a 14-book series. I am looking forward to the next one. Recommended.
- Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet # 19 - This past summer I received a large portion of the back issues for LCRW. As usual this one had some delightful little stories. I still have a half-dozen or more on the shelf, so I should be reporting more and more.
- Tin House #53 - The Portland/Brooklyn issue did not disappoint. After all, how could an issue which includes a story by Ursula K. LeGuin fall short? Bonus points for them creating a [mix-tape] for the twin homes of the magazine.
In 2012 I read:
- 30 magazines
- 24 books
- 13,384 pages
- or about 37 pages per day
