The Dark Tower, pt VII: The Dark Tower. I should be done it by Saturday, since I have time to read at work. I think Insomina will be next. Or maybe I'll finally get that leatherbound copy of all three LotR books and get around to reading those.

knew his pain
"Time kills!" he whispered

That's book 2, right? I read books 1-5 years ago, before my house burned down. I have since re-purchased books 1-9 and started reading again from the beginning. I can't read a whole series in a row, because I get sick of it and give up. I reread book 1 around Christmas of last year, and Dragon Reborn sometime in the Spring. Good book!
