    I have mentioned that I am reading the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss. The first two books are out, and are highly recommended by me. Just be warned, the slow 100ish pages at the beginning of The Name of the Wind are well worth the rest of the 800 pages of enjoyment.

    Anyway, into book two (The Wise Man's Fear), and as a lot of this series takes place at the University (basically....Wizard School) I have decided if I ever get to teach AND name a college course of my own, I want to name it as the crazy professor in this book named his:

    "An Introduction to Not Being a Stupid Jackass"

    "I said NO camels, that's FIVE camels...can't you count?!"

    I think much of the world would benefit from such a class, given the curriculum is in any way related to the name.

    I agree with sergemoat. Today is my first day at the local community college and although my course name is not that creative or funny, I wouldn't hesitate to join a class named that!

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

    Those are GREAT books, and highly recommended. Can't wait for the last of the trilogy!
