is it too late to join? I also have a question about the manga...ya read a certain number of vols to reach the 500 pages right? And how would ya do a summary on them?
I would just summerize what happens between them. if your reading, say, vol 1 and 2 of a series summerize what happened over the course of both. If its 2 (or more) unrelated volumes then maybe just a sentence or two on each. smile.gif

Book Title: Land of the Burning Sands

Author: Rachel Neumeier

Summary: Escaped slave Gereint flees the desert that has destroyed his home and allowed him his freedom. He makes new friends and enemies along the way.

Rating: 5/5

Review: I love this series! The first book was so gripping, and I didn't expect to like this one as much because it has completely different characters (with some overlap), but Gereint and Tehre were just as interesting as Kes -- perhaps even more so, because their problems were human, and Kes' were anything but. And Tehre was adorable, in that way that geniuses tend to be, so caught up in her head that she forgets everything, and I loved how Geeint was able to keep up with her.

Book Number:2

Number Of Pages:350

Book Title:Tales from the Perilous Realm

Author:J. R. R. Tolkien

Summary:A collection of five of Tolkien's short stories ("Roverandom", "Farmer Giles of Ham", "The Adventures of Tom Bobmadil", "Smith of Wootton Major" and "Leaf by Niggle") plus his essay "On Fairy-Stories". The first one's about a puppy that got transformed into a toy by a wizard and his adventures while trying to get his normal looks back. The Farmer is about a farmer who, mainly because of his boasting, is sent to kill a dragon terrorizing the realm. The adventures of T.B. are actually a collection of poems, written at different times during the Third Age and presumably found in the Red Book (the LOTR fans will know what I'm talking about wink.gif ). The smith of W.M. is a story of a boy, later the smith, who finds a little gold star that allows him passage into the Fairy realm, and the events that happen when it's time for him to give up the star to his successor. And the Leaf's about a painter who could draw real-life leaves and who never had enough time to finish the painting of his life because he had to go on a journey.
