Read in January, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 10

Dang it, I still love this stupid book. I read a hojillion times as a little girl (it was my go-to fat book), and in the process of trying to cull my books, I read it again just recently. I have to keep it. It's just a goofy little swashbuckling doo-hickey, but it's mine and you can't take it from me, so there.

I did also reread the first (and second?) book(s?) in the Vlad Taltos series and I now know that for most of this book, you are supposed to be nodding your head knowingly, but I think it stands as a testament to the enjoyability of this book that I knew nothing about Vlad Taltos when I first read it and very little now and still I found it immensely entertaining.

So there. Middle-school me wasn't such a literary half-wit afterall. Maybe I should see about that Black Unicorn business again. Hmmm.
