Ref Desk Random

Librarian rated as a top career. Go know. I like it pretty well. ;-)

Paolini's third book is due out in September; it's called Brisingr.

About time that Paolini released that last book... But what will I do without a Rowing and Paolini series to read?

Now I'm going to be saying, "brsinger" for the rest of the day.

CNB - how are you thinking "brisingr" is meant to be pronounced?! Eeek, is it a word I would know if I had done the reading??

I pronounce it "Burrzinger" because I think it's funnier that way. The only trouble is that it is hard to take seriously when you are reading the book.

Speaking of pronunciation, I read a Maeve Binchy book ("Light A Penny Candle" - an earlier work of hers, not as good as later stuff) and couldn't pronounce the main character's name! "Aisling" was the name and it's pronounced like "Eileen". Who knew that?
