Current Reading List: Martin and Rothfuss

The Wise Man's Fear (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 2)A Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire)I was going to cancel my HBO subscription until I saw that Game of Thrones is coming soon  (HBO tv shows have been boring of late, and movies I get from netflix on-demand). Though I actually don't have high hopes for the show. Although it got me to buy and re-read 4 volume set for Kindle, (since the first one was my favorite fantasy book I read in college, but I didn't have the patience to follow the whole series), I got to chapter 2, when I found out that Name of The Wind's sequel came out. So I started reading that, though unfortunately the reviews are quite tepid. Kindle (mostly the kindle app on iphone/ipad) has been quite effective at amping up my impulse book purchases.
 Classic sophomore slump that Game of Thrones had as well had as well. Something my advisor, economist Ed Lazear formaly modeled actually.
