    Sanderson's said that another November release date is unlikely, he expects the next book to come out the following March or so.

    Well damn. I didn't want to know that.

    Still, as long as it's the final book the wait won't be too onerous.

    It'll be one of the shorter waits between books.

    As far as I know there will be no more books. He has however mentioned the possibility later on of possibly making more prequel novels or something along those lines. However he would wait a few years before doing those, or it would be with a different author.

    Now I`m reading "White Nights" ("Belye nochi" in russian) by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
    He`s a really great writer. I don`t know, if his translation in english is well made, but my english teacher thinks that it`s perfect.

    White Teeth by Zadie Smith was a really good book. Very funny with a sense of humour not so common in female writers (or females for that matter)(is that sexist??...maybe...meh). But yes, really good book.

    Finished Don't Tell Me the Truth About Love by Dan Rhodes. A collection of love stories that mostly end badly. So that was a nice depressing read. The stories were a bit fairytale like...and I'm not sure I liked that about them too much.

    And I am now moving on to Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen

    (and I'm still battling through Heart of Darkness, I don't have the motivation to even look at it)

    Give it up, I finished Heart of Darkness and I really don't think it was worth my time.

    Literary historians seem to be the type who would enjoy it.

    Kinda have to read it, as I must do an essay on it.

    That sucks.

    I'm kinda in the same boat. I put off all of the reading for my studies so I could re-read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (As I didn't remember anything of it. Although it came back to me while reading it.)

    Good book though.

    If you're really having that much trouble with it, just read the sparknotes until you get into the actual heart of darkness. The moment Marlowe meets Kurtz, the book really takes off. Everything before is, admittedly, pretty dull, but the final quarter of the book is so great. And I'm not a literary historian, I just like it when books are actually good.

    That's true, the book does get better once he meets Kurtz. Although I didn't really enjoy the book until Kurtz died.

    And really, if only 25% of a book is good, I don't think it should be called a good book. A classic maybe, but that's something else.

    p.s. I lent that book to a friend of mine (along with others that I recommended, he actually requested this book. That was when he moved to Poland over a year ago. When he visited last summer he still hadn't finished it.)
