Okay, so listen up. Three weeks ago I told you how I came by the book The Girl Who Played With Fire. Well, actually, if you clicked on the link you'll see I sang it to you. Wait, wait, wait, I'm not gonna sing again.
I'm quite proud of myself. I had really slipped in my reading and there are books piling up around here. They make for expensive doorstoppers. But since I spoke on this subject with you last, I've read three books. I was reading The Given Day by Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River and Shutter Island. It was tough slogging, but an excellent read. But when Cat Lady - oh to hell with formalities - Boom Boom Larew chose me as the next blogger of the Bloggerhood of the Traveling Book, not only did I have to zip through Lehane but I had to buy the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, the first in this trilogy, in order prepare myself for book II.
Well, three weeks later I'm happy to say I've read all three books and am now anxious to read the third in the Stieg Larsson series The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.
That being said, I'm ready to pass on The Girl Who Played With Fire to an interested blogger. This is a great book. You just won't want to put it down. Just answer this skill testing question:
What "series" is this trilogy often referred to as?
The first commenter with the right answer wins and will join Unfinished Rambler/Person, Quirkyloon, Boom Boom and me as a card-carrying member of the Bloggerhood Of The Traveling Book.
I'll announce our winner tomorrow and, once they've e-mailed me their mailing address, will send it to them - at my expense! Aren't I a swell guy? Well, that's just how I roll.
Now, does anyone out there want to send me The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest?
