Ahoy, Pagey

Monday, August 25th, 2008

My friend Eddie is responsible for drawing me into several ridiculously long book-seriesesses from Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, to Stephen King’s Dark Tower, and lately, Patrick O’Brien’s Aubrey-Maturin books.  I’ve been reading the 20-book series non-stop for the last year or so and it’s become an obsession.  The series follows two officers in the 19th century British Navy, and even though there aren’t many pirates in them I’ve taken to calling them “the pirate books.”

Every time I start a new one, I say to myself, “Okay, after this, I’m going to take a break and read something else,” but then the book ends with a ridiculous cliffhanger and I need to go get the next one.  I’m an addict.  I only have a couple of books left and then I don’t know what I’m going to do… freak out, I suppose.  Stupid pirate books.
