It’s in the description…

…or not. I will skip the part about blogs and links and will concentrate on books, as that is what comes more easily. How I choose what to read? Well, at first, it is always based on the book’s cover. Then, when the cover interests me, I will pick the book up and read the summary on the back (sometimes inside). And only then I decide whether it is worth reading or not. Sometimes, when there are no interesting covers to choose from, I just go by sections. Like, crime, mystery and so on. And then, I go picking books up randomly, reading teh summary and deciding if it is worth it, or not.

Other times, I already know what I want and go by that. Meaning I for example read a good book from an author. So I go and pick another one from the same one. However, even in this case, I would read the summary first. Because, the fact that a book is written by an author whose other book I like, doesn’t mean that all of his books are good.

There are also times, when I simply pick up a book I already know. Sometimes because the book was just soo good, sometimes, because it was a good laugh. Sometimes simply because I want to and don’t really have a different reason.

Hey, hope you will comment, hm?

See ya.

Hey, today I went to the library and borrowed some books. Two to be exact. One of them is the fifth book in the Legend of Drizzt series. This is something I’m very happy about as I had to wait very long for the previous book. Way too long! The second is one of the Cherub series. I’m not sure about the book number, but I’m looking forward to reading it.

It will have to wait, as right now I’m reading The Venecian Betrayal. And that would be one of the books from Steve Berry’s saga with Cottone Malone. As of now, I cannot judge this book. I’m only at the tenth or so chapter. But I’ll get to it when I finish it.

See ya.

Legend of Drizzt IV

Hey, just today I finished the fourth book in the Legend of Drizzt series. I’m not sure if it has any other general name… Well, the book was very good. Starting with an attack of the barbarian clans and Arak Kessel finding the Crenshinibon. Then with Akar preparing an army and Drizzt and Wulfgar the barbarian going to slay a horde of verbegs. The final part is the best though. It is another battle of the ten cities (what’s the name in english?) and this time the barbarians and the inhabitans of the cities are fighting together. And are joined by the dwarves as well.

The hardest battle falls on Drizzt though. His Guen being the only one who can find the door to Crystal-Thirid (Wanted to write Minas Thirid…).

I suck at this… I just can’t find the right words to describe it in english… I did it in czech… (Missing the last part) But hey, at least I won’t spoil it for you that much… Because, all in all, the book is great. I do suggest you read the previous books first though. It does kinda connect… And you would be a bit lost if you didn’t.

Should have probably picked a cover that is in english, right? Well guess what? I’m not changing it.

See ya.
