8:29AM - Book recs
Being the literate bunch that you all are, I'm hoping I can get some good recs. I'm looking for books that.. well, the best defining characteristic I can come up with for what I'm craving is a depiction of a culture that is not modern American. For example, 1400's to 1800's Europe would be awesome, or Russia before the revolution, or rural India, settlers in early America, so on and so forth. Anything, really; it doesn't even have to be perfectly historically accurate. Especially awesome if its about famous historical figures, but certainly doesn't have to be. No criteria for plot, I'm open to anything. Pretty wide criteria, I know, but I have a lot of interests and too many empty bookshelves :) Any help you can give would be much appreciated!
Penny Arcade on the Anita Blake series.
I love Tycho and Gabe so much.
And the even more entertaining news post for you viewing pleasure-
I am about to talk about tabletop roleplaying. Technically, that should put me below Anita Blake author Laurell K. Hamilton in the Geek Hierarchy, but her sins are grave. Some of her sins literally involve graves.
