i read through the high druid of shannara trilogy by terry brooks this week. i was engrossed and thoroughly enjoyed them per usual with his books. i read one review that said his older works are strong on characterization and i totally agree. the story line was interesting, but i really got connected with the characters and was concerned what would become of each of them. i thought all their little endings were tied up nicely.
school starting in the fall seems to be my trigger for wondering if i'll meet my 52 books in a year quota. probably this is due to mrs. price's "books i read" wall chart. i am highly motivated by stickers and a little friendly competition. i just checked. i'm at 20 at the moment. a little behind, but not too bad. i need to compile a good list and start powering through!
