So Many Books...

Word Nerd finished a book today and *gasp* was without something to read, hoping that the hold on a book at the library would have come in already. There's nothing like a seamless transition from bounty hunters to King Arthur. Honest.

But... the book wasn't there and the Word Nerd had to hit the stacks.
And came home with 4 more novels. And now -- where to put priorities? The criminal antics of John Dortmunder and Co. in "Good Behavior?" The sci-fi nonsense of Arthur Dent in "Life the Universe and Everything? An earlier novel of Joanne Harris or Arturo Perez-Reverte?

Watch the hold come tomorrow.

I recommend the comedic heroics of the famed Arthur Dent. :) It's up for a vote right?

Bethany K. Warner said...

Voting. Sure.
That's 1 for Arthur Dent and 1 (the Word Nerd can vote, right?) for John Dortmunder.

Arthur Dent gets my vote. Don't forget your towel!

Steve Kabelowsky said...

I agree with the group. Dent it is.

Bethany K. Warner said...

All right. It's Dent. (Good thing I started reading this book after work yesterday...)

Mattern said...

Good choice. The penalty of choosing something over Dent was going to be Vogon poetry.

Bethany K. Warner said...

oh not vogon poetry!

Steve Kabelowsky said...

Thumb definately down for the vogons.

I feel uneducated. What's vogon poetry?

Bethany K. Warner said...

Vogon poetry, according to the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is "the third worst in the universe." Listening to it is like torture and is often used as such in the books.
