    Currently re-reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone after almost 20 years. Still find these books to be wonderful and extremely entertaining.

    Since I bought the sequel recently, I'm re-reading The Talisman by Stephen King and Peter Straub after 31 years. It has the distinction of being the first novel I ever bought for my own reading pleasure.

    On the Kindle front for Christmas reading, I'm tackling the poem Christmas Eve (1850) by Robert Browning and also Christmas in Ritual and Tradition, Christian and Pagan (1912) by Clement A. Miles.

    Indeed. I know what I'll have on my Christmas list for myself now.

    Spending today on Maalzn #9: Dust Of Dreams. I've loved the series but this book feels extra-slow for some reason.

    I should note it is not a sequel to the Ender books but rather a book in the universe with all-new characters. Card has been promising a new book starring Ender that will link the Ender series with the Bean series into one narrative, but he's been lazy on that one.

    Finished the Gathering Storm of the Wheel of Time, two books to go, and honestly I can barely tell that Sanderson took over(and so many plot threads FINALLY wrapped up), very impressive, though the fact that I'm listening to audio books and it's still Kate Reading and Michael Kramer narrating help a lot

    I'm reading The Screenwriter's Bible, 6th E by David Trottier. Hope I can write amazing screenplays and jump start my writing career.

    Started reading last night A Christmas Garland (1912) by Max Beerbohm on my my Kindle. It's a collection of short stories parodying the style of a variety of famous authors of that time. Pretty amusing stuff so far.

    I'm curious, do you guys ever buy graphic novel adaptations of books that you're read? I bought 'Legend', an adaptation fo Gemmell's novel, and thought it was ok but also kinda weird for some reason. I've also bought the adaptation of 'The Way of Shadows', which I haven't read yet. I did flick through it though and I liked the look of the art at least.

    Verdict - are they risky?

    I'm currently switching between to books, J.R.R. Tolkien's "Letters from Father Christmas" to get in the holiday spirit, Noam Chomsky's "Who Rules the World?" to somber me up afterwards.

    Also got "The Complete Chronicles of Conan", with all of REH's Conan stories, lying around at work to read while business is slow.

    I recently checked the graphic novel version of Stephen King's The Stand from the library. Does that count?

    Not sure I have one of the arcs for that because they were labelled 1 to 5 of 5 and I didn't know what the stand was, so I thought that I was buying a complete story...

    No more risky than any other type of book, IMO.

    Later on tonight, I'll be tackling on my Kindle Christmas: Its Origin and Associations Together with Its Historical Events and Festive Celebrations During Nineteen Centuries (1902) by William Francis Dawson.
