The Week Ahead

I've got a busy week ahead as it relates to gaming. My copy of The Hero's Journey Roleplaying Game should arrive on Wednesday.  I'm really looking forward to reading it and posting thoughts/pics. My copy of Dark Albion should be here by the end of the week. I'm going to pick up "The Eye of the World" in hardcover from Barns & Noble today. I am actually a really big fan of The Wheel of Time series but I haven't actually finished the books. Now that they are all written I'm going to try to slay that dragon this summer. I've read the first five or six books a couple times in various stages. I own a lot of them on the Kindle but I'm actually getting back into physical books. I just miss holding the actual book. So, I'm ordering the books one by one (as I complete them) in hardcover so I can keep them on the shelf.

A shelf full of books is a magical thing. I remember to this day picking up my dad's copy of The Hobbit from our shelf in Rocklin California when I was in the sixth grade. The book had the JRR Tolkien's drawing of the forest/mountains with the red sun and the eagle flying in the distance. The cover spoke to my 12 year old self and drew my imagination. I want my kids to be able to have that same experience and digital just doesn't do it for me.

I'll try to make at least two most postings this week.
