Been awhile, I know. I'm horrible that way. I'd like to blame it on my uncharacteristic illness (incidentally, Strep Throat != not fun), but that only accounts for a handful of days.
What I have been doing recently is reading the Warcraft novels. I got the Archive which contains the first four: Day of the Dragon, Lord of the Clans, The Last Guardian, and Of Blood and Honor. Needless to say, I'm enjoying them. I think this is partly because they're decently written and partially because they are familiar from playing WoW. Lord of the Clans and The Last Guardian were especially reminiscent because they are the story of Thrall and Karazhan, respectively.
It got me to wondering which part I was enjoying more. Did I only like them because they're part of the game I play, or do they stand on their own merit? In the long run it doesn't matter. I got my enjoyment out of it, and there's nothing else that matters beyond that in a book.
Short post, but it's a post. See you next time.
