I’m 77% of the way through Dune and I really want to finish it today. But I’m at work, boo!
DUNE! First time? OR a reread?
First time!! I know. It’s kind of amazing. And Shmiracles sent me all the sequels, so I may keep going. Have you an uber fan???
Oh, Dune! I totally need to re-read those. I think I got through the 5th book and then my mom was reading the next one and she kept taking it to work with her or hiding it in her room. :)
I really REALLY like the first book, but I’ve never managed to keep on with the entire series – I falter around the 3rd or 4th? Maybe I should just jump to some of the newer books set in the same universe!
I LOVE YOU GUYS <3 I was feeling lonely at work and I thought, I bet they’ve read Dune… Newer books? I have to check those out, I had no idea. We’ll see how far I get past this first one, I know how these things go. I read the entire Hitchhiker series but I really only liked the first 2 or so, and I still haven’t read Harry Potter. The first book of Dune is pretty impressive though.
Gah! I have to stop hearting things on steepster, it always deletes half my post. Anyway, I was feeling lonely at work and thought maybe you guys had read Dune, and there you go ! I know how book series go (read all the Hitchhiker Guides but didn’t need to, still haven’t read Harry Potter) and I didn’t even know about the newer prequels/sequels. I’ve been told the Dune series is pretty good, if not quite as good as the first. Anyway, I wish I could read things like this with my mom – that’s adorable. But I think sand worms sound cute, too, so my cuteness button is on overload.
The whole family was fighting over the books at one point. :) Dad was nice and left his (my brother was able to read ahead because of this), but mom foiled my plans.
Your family is the cutest. Though Dune is about a family and there’s something for everyone, so I understand the pull. In comparison, my parents used to get mad at me for reading too much when I was younger and not paying enough attention to them or not watching TV. Parent fail fail fail.
We go camping and at the end of the day we sit around the campfire or on the beach with our headlamps… reading. We are such an unsociable family. :) But it’s awesome. That really sucks you weren’t encouraged to read as much as you could.
Gaaahhhhh I take it back, your family is PERFECT, haha. Awesome.
LOL We’re something, all right. :D
