A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin

A Clash of Kings (A Song of Ice and Fire, #2)A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this one much more than the first one in the series. The action has taken off, and I'm more invested in the characters on all sides of the war. Usually after this many pages there's some decision the author has made that I hate, but not so this time. I've been surprised but not deeply disappointed yet. I immediately started the third book.

Authors Beginning with A

As I explained in the last post, I'm finally going to deal with the hundreds of books I inherited when Dad passed away by going through them by author last name. Dad's books by authors beginning with the letter A is a very small collection, so it's possibly given me an false confidence regarding how successful my new plan will be.

Dad- A
Dad's books with authors starting with A.

He also had Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams but I took it to my room to read, and now I can't find it. That was probably his favorite out of this small group.

Dad- A Yes
These are the ones I decided to keep (in addition to Hitchhiker's Guide to Galaxy)

Dad- A No
This is the "no" pile. St. Augustine is in there only because
Kevin already owned it and likes his translator.

Fiction A
Kevin and Ericka's previously owned fiction*

Nonfiction A
Kevin and Ericka's previously owned non-fiction

Ebooks A
My e-books, all free fiction in this case.

Any arguments in favor of some of the ones we're donating? Would you like one of those? Or against any of the ones I'm keeping?

*I left out Kevin's poetry books because he keeps those on a separate shelf and I don't want to disturb their order. Maybe I'll do an extra post about the poetry at the end.
