Red Seas Under Red Skies Read Along, Week Two

It’s time for the second installment in the Red Seas Under Red Skies read-along.  This week’s questions (which cover up to the end of chapter six in the book) are from the Little Red Reviewer.

Once you’re done here, surf over to Andrea’s for links to a lot of other people who are participating in the event.  I look forward each week to the many opinions, takes and observations on the reading–many of the people notice things I missed or bring up something interesting to discuss, debate and ponder.

Here we go with this week’s questions…

Booking Through Thursday — Runs in the Family

A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.

Heidi asks:

Do you have siblings? Do they like to read?

I have a younger sister and she also enjoys reading.  We have some similar interests in reading material, though I doubt she picks up many sci-fi novels or some of the fantasy novels I read.

We’re from a family of readers.  Our parents enjoy reading and we often share recommendations and books.

Mistborn Read-Along, Week Four

We’re in the home stretch of Brian Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn and all I can say is, wow, things are picking up steam in a big way. (The pages just flew by this week and I’ve enjoyed the book so much that it feels like we’ve just started rather than that we’re finishing up next week!  Whatever will I do on Wednesdays without the conversation with fellow readers?!?)

It’s the fourth week of the Mistborn read-along, kindly hosted by Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings.   This week’s questions come from  Lynn.

The questions here cover chapters 25-34 and if you haven’t read the book yet, I will warn you there are SPOILERS!   I know there was that article a couple of years ago about how avoiding SPOILER can be futile because no one can read or watch every single thing out there.  But if you plan to read the novel, I highly recommend going in unSPOILED.   Cause, man, it’s some good stuff.

OK, enough of that.  Onto the questions.
