I wish publishers would include the electronic copy gratis if you buy the hard copy. that way you read book at home and while mucking about you can use e reader.
Have you read The White Goddess? It has been sitting on my table for a month now, but you might find it interesting.
MBoF has been on my list for a while, but something about starting a 10+ book series is daunting. I'm one of the few fantasy geeks who doesn't give a shit about Robert Jordan, so I could be biased. Or something.
Damn, I've edited my original post like 6 times, I keep forgetting things. Sadly, for each book that gets recommended, there are probably 6 or 7 that are borderline unreadable. Ah, well.
