Had to look at that one.

Luccio should still give it a try. While her body may now be young and, IIRC, a babe, her knowledge is still there.

Re: The Dresden Files

In Small Favor she finally she got back into the action so hopefully he'll get it in the next book. I don't know how well he'll handle a blade though.

Meaning you don't know how he'll handle it because of his bad hand? {Yes, I know that the hand's getting better, little by little.] Well, he has his sword cane. He's used it in the past.

or

Do you mean you don't know how he'll handle his Warden's duties, e.g. lopping off heads wizards who violate the Laws of Magic?

BTW, my paperback of "Small Favor" arrived in today's mail. Surprised me, because it's 3/4" taller than all of the other Dresden Files paperbacks. MSRP is up, too, US $9.99.

His hand is getting better & better in each book... I think it's almost completely functional in Small Favor but it's still badly scarred.

I was talking about him actually using a sword. I think he mentioned in one of the recent books that it's not his style... I could be mistaken though. I'm sure he'd use it if he got one though.

They touch on that subject in Proven Guilty.

I'll trade you my hard cover for it ... I hate hard covers. They need to release paperbacks first, you would think they'd be easier to print but I guess they couldn't charge you 20 bucks then.

Re: The Dresden Files

Turn Coat just replaced book 4 as my favorite Dresden book. It was really, really good, and just from reading it I could get the feel that there will be many more books to come. He stil doesn't get a sword yet though... he has one on the cover but nope... NO SWORD.

What a tease!


I got Turn Coat two days ago and you're already done reading it?

Well, like I said, he's used his sword cane before. He also tried to use Amoracchius that one time (bad idea).

Yes, that's where I am now.

OTOH, hardcovers use better paper than paperbacks. Ever notice how quickly some paperback pages yellow and become fragile? Also, the ink used in paperbacks seems to be almost erasable.

And here I thought you just absorbed books like Willow did in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", when she absorbed the knowledge of that pile of "dark magic" books and became dark Willow.

Me, I'm lucky to get a few pages read per day. Too much stuff going on.

Re: The Dresden Files

Well I spent how many months telling people I was waiting for this book so when it came out I took off & everybody I know had enough good sense to leave me the &^@! alone till I finished it. My nephew was a little annoying but I can't blame him for being a kid.

"What are you doing?"
"Reading."

"What are you doing?"
"Reading..."

"What are you doing?"
"READING!"

"What are you doing?"
"READING!!!"

"What are you doing?"
"I'm READING!!!!!"

"WHY?"
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
