And then we have A Northern Light which won some YA awards. :cool:

Eh, people need to lighten up.

However this does inspire me. Maybe istead of looking for song titles I should be looking at book titles for my WIP. :p

I thought the last comment was fabulous. I would buy his 'Lord of the Rings' any day :)

Is that the one by Jennifer Donnelly? It was called A Gathering Light for the UK. I knew there was another one with that title! :rolleyes:

Haven't had a chance to read through them all yet but I thought I'd share. There are two threads one herein the Romance forum and this one in the Historical romance forum.

Not the author of the book in question, but I loved this quote:

Isn't hawking books what these Discussions Forums are all about?

This whole thing had gotten ridiculous, if it wasn't already. I've decided to stay off Amazon forums as much as possible.

I agree, I don't go there either. This one was pointed out to me by a pal @ Goodreads.

Another day, another kerfuffle. This time a highly ranked reviewer has been accused of plagiarising others in his reviews. Discussion here, comments on his reviews here. I haven't read through it all yet and I'm definitely watching this puppy from the sidelines.
