So does anyone even read what I have to say about Ethshar books anymore? Because I just finished Lawrence Watt-Evans' The Spell of the Black Dagger , and I'm sitting here wracking my esophagus (my brain being all wracked out) trying to come up with something to say about it that I haven't already said about the umpteen billion previous entries in the series.

"Well," I thought, "What did Trent say about Book MCMLXVII of that Sharpe's Something-Or-Other series?" And I realized: I had no idea, because I hadn't read it. I was at first discouraged at not having an answer to the question of what to write, but then realized that I'd gotten an answer after all: If nobody's going to bother reading my comments on this book, then I hardly see any reason to write them.

I feel vaguely uneasy about this, like the Booklog Council of Elders is going to come swooping in and issue a judgment against me, compelling me to read and write long critical essays of all the DragonLance novels or something; but what the hell. I can take those bastards.
