Cool My annual re-read of The Dresden Files!

I've decided to begin my third annual re-read of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files series today. I had planned to begin this re-read a little closer to Skin Game's release date, but since I've noticed that my book consumption rate has slowed significantly as of late, as stated in the above quote, I've just now begun re-reading Storm Front again.
I finished re-reading Storm Front last night so this morning I've begun re-reading Fool Moon!

Nice excerpt, thank you for the link Alan.

Since I think this was the thread where I learned about Ben Aaronovitch's PC Grant series I thought I'd point out that the newest book "Broken Homes" is out since July 25th.
Goodreads Reviews are looking good so far so I'll somehow have to make room for yet another book to read.

Yep, that's the idea.

...and a short Harryism from Grave Peril is:
Quote:
“My sister hasn’t eaten tonight,” he explained. “She’s on a diet.”
“Vampires on a diet?” Susan murmured beneath her breath.
“Yeah,” I said back, sotto voce. “Make hers a Blood Lite.”

Yeah, my rate of consumption seems to have recovered.This makes me wonder if the stuff I've been reading lately is not as enjoyable as I'd perceived it to be.

I'm sure it's enjoyable, it's just not Dresden!
