Haha, we finally concur on an opinion about books!
Stephen King was just really hard going for me, kinda like Stephen Donaldson or Stephen Erikson... I dunno why, but all the Steves just don't do it for me
I'm really not surprised that you're struggling with A Feast For Crows... I found it very difficult to finish, as well, particularly (as you say) following A Storm of Swords, which was pretty packed. I'm sure I'll get around to re-reading the whole thing once the whole series is out.
I've got some clinical finals to revise for in a few weeks haha, so I've kinda put books on hold for a while. I've been re-reading Hitch-Hiker's Guide since you mentioned it to me, though - something light and humorous to keep me sane. Also, you're talking to a medi lol. If anyone's going to understand nerdyness, it's me! I love libraries for the same reason, and they're just as unproductive for me
