I read compulsively, eclectically and fannishly.

Currently reading

Quand un roi perd la France (Les rois maudits, #7)
Maurice Druon
George Steiner
The Captive & The Fugitive
Marcel Proust, C.K. Scott Moncrieff, Terence Kilmartin, D.J. Enright
Dreams Underfoot - Charles de Lint Judging by the fact that it took me at least three years (if I recall correctly) to make it through this book, I don't know that I would recommend it as a good place to start with the Newford books. Every story quickly becomes very samey and less satisfying, like eating mouthful after mouthful of cotton candy until you have sticky hands, an empty bag and a stomachache.

I have enjoyed several of de Lint's other books and will probably return to another Newford book at some point, but it probably won't be terribly soon. And in the future I won't try to read them in order!
