fantasy-struck

Having only recently ventured into the fantasy genre in my reading, thus far bemusedtots had been lacking in much zeal in it. Perhaps due to a poor choice/luck in the books that I've been picking up - often it takes triple the amount of time to go from cover to cover. Should this bookworm chance upon another read midway through, the odds are high that this other diversion would be completed earlier.


But this latest foray into that make-belief world was an absolute delight.. Such that I hardly even felt inclined to read the other books on my bedside! Even the sheer volume did naught to put me off, though it gave the sister a shock to see it laying on the bed, almost the same thickness of my bolster it was, no kidding.

As I ploughed diligently through the volume the past few days, I'm starting to appreciate the appeal it has to fans.. I could seriously like this stuff, getting captivated and happily lost in the whimsical stories.

Did I mention the fact that I got it at a steal of $5 at some book sale? Definitely value for money - whether you're talking about volume, or satisfaction delivered. :p

I shall probably seek the advice of experts for subsequent reads as interesting as this. Hee.
