How I Got It
From the bargain book section at Barnes & Noble. The price was $5.98 + tax.
The original price was $21.95 + tax!
When I Got It
Gosh, I really don't remember.....
All I know is that I've had it for a couple of years now -- maybe 4 or 5.
Why I Want To Read It
This author's work has been compared to that of J.R.R. Tolkien. That automatically makes a book worthy to join my collection! Also, I think that this cover is one of the MOST beautiful I've ever seen! I really need to get this one under my belt pretty soon.....
