How I feel about it all: boredbored
Soundtrack: O.A.R. - Crazy Game of Poker
Is there any song you like but you've never heard/don't know/don't like any other song by that person or band My example: Crazy Game of Poker by O.A.R. Great, very entertaining song, but I've never felt any real need to hear anything else they've done (I'm sure it's good, just never had the desire to hear it).

What about books? Any book you've ever read (and loved) where you've never read another book by the same author? My example: Mark Helperin's Winter's Tale. I'm pretty sure it's his only fantasy novel, and that's why I've never really wanted to read anything else he's written. This is odd for me, 'cause when I discover an author I tend to devour everything he/she has written.


So, entertain me, 'cause I'm bored. :D


The good thing is I got me some Lovecraft in the mail. Reading for later, whee!

Book: Pride and Prejudice. I've never read another of Jane Austen's books. I've half-heartedly tried to from time to time, but in the end, I'd just rather re-read P&P.

I can't think of any song. Hmm.

song: Iron & Wine "Such Great Heights".. an amazing song from the Garden State sdk
book: this is tough, because when I like a book/author I almost always seek out their other stuff.. I guess I could say Mary Renault, because I read The Charioteer and disliked it - but as for a book I've liked but haven't read anything else by.. hmm.. Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner

Wow, you'll want to read Swordspoint...

In the highly stratified world of Kushner's nameless old city, the aristocrats living in fine mansions on the Hill settle their differences by sending to the thieves' den of Riverside for swordsmen who will fight to the death for a point of someone else's honor. Young Lord Michael Godwin is so taken by these romantic figures that he studies the art himselfuntil challenged by the best of them. Master of the Sword, Richard St. Vier is picky in his contracts and precise in his killing but he nevertheless becomes embroiled in the nobility's political, social and sexual intrigues. When his lover Alec is kidnapped, St. Vier must take drastic action. Kushner's authorial voice may be somewhat smug and self-conscious but that suits her subject. Her novel is intelligent, humorous and dramatic, with a fine, malicious feeling for the operation of gossip in a closed society.

Ooh, that sounds good! *adds to growing list* I really love Ellen. I don't always get to listen to her programs when they're broadcast, but I dip into the archives all the time.

Re: Books

I don't think either of them wrote another book. I know Margaret Mitchell didn't. What about people who write a lot o' stuff?
