Once Again into BookWorld! []

Today is a day for which I have been waiting for quite some time. Today is the US release of One of Our Thursdays Is Missing, the sixth book in Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next series. This series is basically crack for book nerds, among whose company I count myself, and from what I've read of OoOTIM, it's only getting better.

Seriously. If you love books, are an English major/recovering English major, or just generally enjoy a good read, pick up this series, starting with The Eyre Affair.

This is also somewhat of a momentous day, as it marks the first time I've bought a book on release day through Kindle. Had it pre-ordered to be delivered via WhisperNet. Admittedly, this was pretty much unnecessary, as it's hard to run short of digital books, but I did it anyway.

Also, for those who have been following the series, things have changed. Right from the first couple pages, things have changed. This will eventually have to affect the BookWorld RPG I've been running with some friends, but probably not for the current mission, since I think I'm the only one who's current on the series.

In other news, this means I'm going to have to put Atlas Shrugged on hold, yet again...ah well, it's on my Kindle, so I can get back to it whenever and not have lost my place.
