Books Read in St. John, USVI

I read a couple more books while I was on vacation. I’ve got no real desire to review them, suffice to say that I both enjoyed them and would highly recommend them to whomever was looking for fun and/or intriguing reading.

Feet of Clay, by Terry Pratchett

More of TP’s fun in Discworld, this time with an emphasis on golems, self-determination, Vimes, and Nobby.

Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players, by Stefan Fatsis

Who knew that competitive Scrabble players were such a compelling group? This book riveted me for hours on end, and made me realize that being obsessed with something to the detriment of being able to hold a job is not something I aspire to.

ETA:

Eragon, by Christopher Paolini.

Fantasy, danger, and dragons… who can argue? Not me!

One thought to “Books Read in St. John, USVI”

  1. “…an emphasis on golems, self-determination, Vimes, and Nobby” I love the way he writes a comedy novel and there’s a serious point just slipped in there somewhere. My favorite so far is A Monstrous Regiment — though I knew what that meant because Laurie R. King used the same Milton quote for a title.
