Comments: Games
I picked up Prince of Persia: Warrior Within again, after not playing for more than two months thanks to one of those annoying chase sequences. Many tries and shredded nerves later, I finally made it past that point in the game. Right now, I’m cruising along splendidly. That is, until the next chase sequence shows up. I hate them (or I’m too old for these thrills). I prefer the first.

Game Comment: Puzzle Quest (PS2) (4/5)

    You’ve had a good book buying-and-reading month, eh? šŸ˜€ Robin Schone … I’ve never read her before, but my reading buddies like her quite well. šŸ™‚

    Jace – I’m okay with it. šŸ˜€

    I thought Robin Schone’s novel really interesting. Sadly, her novels are published in trade paperback now which means I’m less likely to buy them.

    LOL, you’re doing such a good job at keeping track of the books you buy!! šŸ™‚ I tried and I just can’t ^_^;

    Still can’t wait to read your review of Bitten.

    Nath – thanks! I’m trying to keep my book buying in check that way. Not so easy to cheat myself into thinking I read more than I buy. *looks at recaps* At least, that is the idea.

    I wanted to write/tweak my review for Bitten today but then I got it into my head to do some “spring cleaning” (living room) and well, then I was done in. *g* (I can only hope that my review will at least live up partly to all the anticipation. šŸ˜‰ )
