    I'll certainly read The Lymond Chronicles one day. But I am a bit concerned that, once I crack the first, I'll be gone to another time and place for the next solid month.

    I know Isak Dinesen's good, and she sounds intriguing to me, but I thought of her mainly as a short story writer, not a novelist. Though, really, I'm too stuck in novels and need to branch out more (plays, poetry, non-fiction too).

    Mists of Avalon is a towering achievement. Never tried any others of hers.

    Oddly, I spent years looking for a copy of Cyteen, but when I finally bought it, it just went up on the shelf.

    I haven't done any marathon reads since all 10 Amber Books, November - January. I'm always looking over my shoulder at the next diary deadline. But I feel like I'm straightening out my methods of production, so I think by the fall I'll be reading more books and mixing some longer ones in. As long as I stay strong, and don't subscribe to Netflix online.
