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!

Cool Harryisms

Quoted from Summer Knight

Quote:
She’d just been toying with me in my office, and I’d fallen for it. I wanted to kick myself. Somewhere out there was a village I’d deprived of its idiot.

--------------------------------------------------------------

You are, I take it, Harry Dresden?”

“If I’m not, he’s going to be upset with me when he catches me running around in his underpants.”

Cool 1 session, as well as another Harryism

...hmm, well, at least lately, I've not read anything in a single session! Honeydos seem to always get in the way!

Another Harryism quoted from Summer Knight:
Quote:
As I pulled into the parking lot, I reflected that odds were that not a lot of clandestine meetings involving mystical assassination, theft of arcane power, and the balance of power in the realms of the supernatural had taken place in a Wal-Mart Super Center. But then again, maybe they had. Hell, for all I knew, the Mole Men used the changing rooms as a place to discuss plans for world domination with the Psychic Jellyfish from Planet X and the Disembodied Brains-in-a-Jar from the Klaatuu Nebula. I know I wouldn’t have looked for them there.

Cool The Dresden Files Snippit

I'm gonna' call these 'Dresden Files Snippits' when I post them from now on. These are from Death Masks!

Quote:
...a woman’s voice said, “Hello?”

This was my nightmare. “Oh. Uh, hello, Charity. It’s Harry Dresden.”

“Hi!” the voice said brightly. “This isn’t Charity though.”

So maybe it wasn’t my nightmare. It was my nightmare’s oldest daughter. “Molly?” I asked. “Wow, you sound all grown-up now.”

She laughed. “Yeah, the breast fairy came to visit and everything.
Quote:
“Mister Dresden,” he said. “And Miss Rodriguez, I believe. I didn’t realize you were an art collector.”

“I am the foremost collector of velvet Elvii in the city of Chicago,” I said at once.

“Elvii?” Marcone inquired.

“The plural could be Elvises, I guess,” I said. “But if I say that too often, I start muttering to myself and calling things ‘my precious,’ so I usually go with the Latin plural.”
