Me: Hey, Jenn, I just finished the copy of Zelazny’s Guns of Avalon that you loaned me.

My buddy Jenn: Great! How did you like it?

Me: It was cool. Zelazny does in 200 pages what all these other writers do in a ten book series. Though, if we put Martin into that category… I’d taken a Martin doorstopper any day. They’re just… different modes of writing. I read Martin to get that really complex character stuff, really big, complex politics. Zelazny’ll take you there and back again in 200 pages. Cool in itself, but you’re going through all these neat, crazy worlds, you know, like the furry people?

Jenn: Oh, I wouldn’t know. I haven’t read the Amber books.

Me: ::looking at pile of 6 Amber books sitting on my bedside::: But… you have *all* of the Amber books. You’ve had them for… years and years and years.

Jenn: Yea. I know. I never got around to reading them.

Me: Like the 800 other books in this house that you haven’t read?

Jenn: Yea.

Me: You’re nuts.

I then go and start reading the next in the line of eight books I’m currently reading all at the same time.

We have a great house.
