I've never heard of IT, but it sounds interesting. Have never read AoGG series, could. Didn't like Red Tent well enough to read again. I like Orson Scott Card, the Ender/Bean series. My mom gave me Woman of Destiny. I've read and enjoyed for a once-read most of Anne McCaffrey. I've got 80+ books on my library reading list(digital--love it--can add from the online catalog), so do I add more?
Are you thinking sci-fi/fantasy or straight fantasy?
