Fifty Book Challenge - Part 28

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
- Zen, and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert M. Pirsig
- The Year of Our War, by Steph Swainston
- GURPS Magic, by Steve Jackson Games
- GURPS Infinite Worlds, by Steve Jackson Games
- Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying Game, by Black Industries

Book(s) I have recently finished reading
The Artemis Fowl Files, by Eion Colfer

Lessons learned
Never make promises you don't want to keep.

The Artemis Fowl Files contains 2 short stories and some extras (like interviews).
LEPRecon is a new story telling us how Holly's joined LEPRecon,
The Seventh Dwarf was earlier published seperatly. It is a story about Mulch who
infiltrates a circus act to 'retrieve' something.

Delightfull stories.
