It has been a while since I have updated everyone on what I am reading at the moment. I have just finished reading ‘The Writer’ by Cristian Mihai which I quite enjoyed. I am still reading Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’, which like ‘The Iliad’, that you may recall I read a while ago is based on the George Chapman translation. Although I enjoy reading epics like this I can usually only take them in very small doses, a few pages a day, and so they end up taking an absolute age to read. I am also reading Stephen King’s ‘On Writing’, which I had hoped to finish by the end of the weekend, but sadly this now looks unlikely, today being the last day of the football season. I am finding this a fascinating read, even though I have never read any of his fiction.
At the moment I am looking to clear the decks of books, with the exception of ‘The Odyssey’, which as I have mentioned will be a while yet. I have just received Raymond E Feist’s final part of the Riftwar Cycle, ‘Magician’s End’, which I am eager to dive into as soon as possible. I have been reading and enjoying immensely this series since it first started in the early 1980s, and now, thirty years later, it looks to be coming to a final conclusion.
