"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Trailer Thursday (03): Inheritance

Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

I'm really excited to read the final book in the Eragon saga.  There are a lot of naysayers out there who think that Christopher Paolini ripped off Tolkien and McCaffery etc.  But what I think those reviewers don't get is that particular books, especially fantasy/sci-fi fall into tropes.  The "epic quest", the "chosen one", the "battle to win all" etc.  These things aren't exclusive to any fantasy book.  So I for one can't wait to read this last installment, it looks good!

  1. I can't wait for this!! It's been so long since I've read Brisingr I'm worried I won't love it as much as I did the first three but I am definitely excited for Inheritance!
