I am lost in a novel.

I have dived headlong into the Game of Thrones series of books. I have nearly completed book two and I am at the stage where I am thinking about the characters as I go about my daily tasks. I even took the book up with me to the studio the other day and during the course of the day found a good rythm, whereby I made a couple of pots, read a few pages, gazed at the sky for a bit and then made a couple more pots. It was a good afternoon.

I am not quite at the stage where I am dreaming about the characters but I am sure that will happen as I immerse myself in the third book.

Life would be so empty without glorious, fat novels that transport me into another world and another time.

Thank you George R. R. Martin you are now firmly in my favourites list, right next to Robin Hobb and Pamela Freeman.

    Pamela Freeman commented on my blog once. I nearly died. True story. 🙂

        She must have google alerts and I reviewed a YA fantasy book of hers, which she commented on and added a link to the review on her site. 🙂

    Thank you. My reading list was beginning to look a bit slim!

      Pamela Freeman’s The castings trilogy was unputdownable. The game of thrones series is just wonderful. Lovely fat novels with small print. Oh yay.

        Yippee – I foresee a happy hour or so in the kindle store!

          and book three of Robin Hobb’s, Rain wild chronicles is out in book form here but not on Amazon yet. A measure of how deeply I am into the game of thrones books is that I haven’t picked up the latest Robin Hobb yet.

    Sometimes being lost in a novel is the best place to be. I didn’t know Game of Thrones was in book form, I have a few episodes on dvd. Unless they’re not the same story?

      It is the same story River, I haven’t seen the series but I would highly recommend the books

    Boo and Hiss to you. I do not need to lust after any more books. I need less books not more books. Your afternoon of creativity, reading and looking at the sky sounds like heaven on a stick though.

      Yes you do. We all NEED MORE BOOKS. I am surrounded by tottering piles of books. Veronica and I have interchangeable libraries which means that we have forgotten which books belong to which person. It is lovely. I wish you lived closer then I could lend you some of our books.
