FUNDAY MONDAY, OR THE BOOKS THAT WILL HELP ME SURVIVE THE WEEK AHEAD (JANUARY 2, 2017)

funday-monday

A new year has begun, but . . . the same old routine begins anew.  The work never ends.  And so I quickly slip into my business suit and head back into the office to save a few innocent people. But while I try to fool myself into being excited about the promise of a new year and the continuation of the regular grind, deep down, I’m not, so I’m going to escape dreary reality by reading some great books.

Hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!  Hopefully, 2017 will be the best year ever in all ways for each and every one of you.  As for me, I’m taking a break from reading really serious or realistic fantasy and spending a little time on enjoying some pure, old fashioned sword and sorcery tales delivered by Warhammer.  These stories are just great fun!

    Huh, well this is very helpful. I’ve been eyeing the warhammer universe but the thought of floundering around in a big pond has really put the brakes on diving in. Looking forward to what you think and I’ll see if this is a good path to start down…
