    Why don’t you two talk about Shakespeare’s Henry IV pt. 1? It is such a character driven play, particularly since it is here that Shakspeare gives us his most endearing and repugnant character, Sir John Falstaff. I would really love to hear what you two have to say about him. Also, Hal is such a complicated character: despite being one of England’s most remembered kings, he comes off as arrogant and Machiavellian.

      A fellow SF fan! I love the first two and it’s pretty likely we’ll get to them. I’ve never read any Cherie Priest, but she has been in my mental “to read” list for a while now. #Just Ben

      We’ll consider anything. I do feel like I should warn you that I’m even worse at poetry than I am at Shakespeare. #Just Ben

    You should do Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter… Cause you know the movie is coming out so I’m sure a lot of people will start caring about that book.

    I have a book suggestion, The Night Circus. It’s full of magc, mystery, ….. And other stuff and it’s set at the turn of the 20th century. There is a central romance driving the plot but, there is so much other stuff going on you might forget about that.

      You’re not the first person to tell me I should read that, I’ll definitely add it to the list. #Ben

    One of my very favorite books every is Watership Down by Richard Adams. Don’t be put off once you see that it’s about rabbits, it’s got adventure, action, fascinating characters, humor, whatever you could want from a novel. It’s a little long but so worth a read.
