The Stacks

Welcome to The Stacks! This little dusty corner is mostly to help the Brothers keep a list of books, trilogies or series that they need to get around to reading or rereading. Please consider this page under construction while they figure out how best to put it to good use.

Jared’s Shelf

Jared doesn’t have an order to reading books, he reads simply the things that interest him at the moment. It is safe to assume that Robert’s Comprehensive Library of All Books Sci-fi or Fantasy and Assorted are all on his list of considerations. But to be slightly more specific here is a list of things you may expect. (Please note that just because something is “Short List” does not mean that I will be able to get to it. Nor that there will be a review of it in the near future. Simply that the library is willing to give it to me and I will walk around with it for a while until I have to give it back. Books like to go on walks.)
