Keeping on track

I’ve been a bit lacking on keeping this blog up to date lately. Not that I haven’t been reading, but it has partially been non-fiction, which I usually don’t incorporate for this blog, except for certain classic or old material. I did manage to expand my collection a bit more with two purchases: Never Let Me Go (2005) by Kazuo Ishiguro, of which has been made a movie, which I haven’t seen, but I wanted to try the book first as the concept interested me, and The Fortress In The Eye Of Time (1995) by C.J. Cherryh. I’ve seen books by Cherryh in second hand book stores for quite time, but they were mainly Science Fiction of a type that did not draw my interest. This book however is Fantasy and did make me decide to pick it up to see if I like it. It’s the first book of a series, so hopefully it will make me want to read more.

In the meanwhile I’ve picked up The Island Of The Day Before (1994) by Umberto Eco. I already mentioned it in a recent post, but it hasn’t caught on to me that much yet, so I’m slowly but steadily progressing. Eco’s works are not always that easy to get into but usually you do catch on.
