Fifty Book Challenge - Part 39 and 40

The League of Extraordinary Gentlereaders has declared that 2005 will be the year we will read at least 50 books for the betterment of ourselves, and the people surounding us.

Each time I finish a book I will note it here, with a little description, my opinion and the lessons I drew from it, which I can use for the betterment of myself and world around me.

Book(s) I am currently reading
- The Last Light of the Sun, by Guy Gavriel Kay

Book(s) I have recently finished reading
39. The Novice, by Trudi Canavan
40. The High Lord, by Trudi Canavan

Lessons learned
39. Sometimes some people are better then you though they'd be.
40. Sometimes can be be right, while others say you are wrong.

39. The Novice, by Trudi Canavan
40. The High Lord, by Trudi Canavan
Both these books are worthy follow-ups to the Magician's Guild.
Over all the series is a pleasant read and even addresses several social issues.
