Oops. I accidentally deleted Bawa's comment. Fortunately, I found it in my inbox, so here it is:

I cam across this blog in an indirect way (Pyrenees, Luz etc.) and it was nice to find someone who would read Jane Austen, Stephen Donaldson or Ursula leGuin etc etc as I do. It is always good to find other people with similarly mixed-up reading habits.

My own S Donaldson favourite is Mordant'need 2 vol series.
Another writer that I recently discovered through following up Miyazaki's film Howl's Moving Castle is Dianna Wynne Jones.
I cannot think why I hadn't heard of her before, but am fast making up for it. A plus side to the late discovery is that there are a whole load of books already written just waiting to be read.

Will go through all your book reviews now to see if there authors that I have missed.
Don't cycle myself, but admire all those who do!

The best value online English bookstore for someone in Europe is bookdepositary. Delivers FREE anywhere in Europe and some places in the world, and if you look at Amazon delivery charges, it always works out cheaper. Doesn't solve your dollar-euro rate problem, but it is priced in UK pounds so that might be more favourable for the dollar.

I'm back in the US now, so I now have access to a big library again! I like Dianna Wynne Jone's work, but I'm not enamored of it, and haven't gotten around to it recently. I wasn't super impressed by Howl's Moving Castle (the movie), but maybe the book will be better.
