Hi guys! So I'm titling this post "Morgan Tells You What to Read By Babbling Incoherently And Then Using Capslock A Lot." I'm sure you will all enjoy it.
I've been talking on and off recently about how I've been reading The Lymond Chronicles
and how they are the best thing ever. And a few people have even expressed interest in also picking them up, even though I've prefaced every squee-fest about them with "BUT ALSO THEY ARE CONFUSING". At least two/three people on my flist I believe have at least started the books.
So I thought to myself, I thought "Self! If you can get a few people to pick up these books just by randomly mentioning how they are melting your brain, imagine what you could do if you made a pimp post! Maybe a whole OTHER PERSON would start reading. And then you would have THREE people to talk about them with. Three! Imagine!"
AND THEREFORE THIS POST WAS BORN.( Book Recommendation Pimp Post!: The Lymond Chronicles. They are the best and you should read them!!1! )
I've been considering starting up a Lymond Book Club
community here on LJ with mordororbust
. I know there's a general comm for Lymond stuff but it's actually hard to discuss the books without getting spoiled. I think it would be fun to have people discussing all the different books as they read them and we could break the books down into parts for discussion posts, etc. Plus my immediate reaction whenever anyone mentions they are reading the books is generally "OMG! What do you think?! Where are you? How do you feel? Who is your favorite? TELL ME YOUR FEELINGS!" Which I think gets a bit creepy. So if we had a book club I might stop creeping people out by sending them weird Lymond emails.
Would anyone else reading the books/thinking of reading the books/have read the books be interested in a Lymond Book Club?
