First off, I'm going to say this has been essentially a lost week for me. I started the week with big plans: finish and review A Game of Thrones, begin reviewing the episodes of the HBO Game of Thrones series, watch and review The Gamers, put up a bunch of posts for the 30 Days of Genre, throw a post up on my other blog Playing in Other Worlds, and write up a post for The Arcane Hour. But between work, school, helping my daughter with her science project, and trying to mow the foot deep wet grass, and other exigencies of everyday life, exactly zero of that got done. I hope next week is better.
It's Friday again, which means it's time for Follow Friday. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host (Parajunkee) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - Marla at Starting the Next Chapter.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
This is a tough question for me. As of my last count, I had just over 5,800 books, so you can pretty much guess that narrowing this down to ten would be quite painful. But assuming that we are talking about fiction, and not books on agriculture, engineering, and practical skills to rebuild civilization, I'd need to bring (in no particular order):
- The Lord of the Rings (Tolkien counted it as one book, so I am too) by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Dune by Frank Herbert
- Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein
- The Mabinogion probably the Lady Charlotte Guest translation
- A Canticle for Liebowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr.
- Creatures of Light and Darkness by Roger Zelazny
- The Mote in God's Eye by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
- Stand on Zanzibar by John Brunner
- Startide Rising by David Brin
