32. The Wise Man's Fear

By Patrick Rothfuss (1107 pp.)

I took 1800 pages on vacation and managed to read 1400 in two weeks and it took 3 weeks to finish the last 400 pages. These books hold up great second time through. The only bummer is I bet Book 3 won't be here for at least another couple of years.

31. The Name of the Wind

By Patrick Rothfuss (720 pp)

This is the second time I've read this. I wanted to wait until I knew book 3 was coming out but it seemed like the perfect vacation book and it was. I was always happy to get back to it when I was sitting on a train or sleepless at an odd hour. I only made it about 375 pp into Book 2 and I'm worried it will take me forever to finish when reading has to compete with all the other things in my non-vacation life. Original review here. Still highly recommend. Second reading greatly enhanced by Jo Walton's Re-Read.
