I like to read, ok!
So. I reread the Martian Chronicles the other day. And I think Ray Bradbury had a fantastic mind for the future. He wrote that book in 1949!! It amazes me. I always did like that one the best of all his books. I have also got Fahrenheit 451 to reread. It's good too.
In addition to those very good sci-fi books, I've also got some Mark Twain on my shelf to read. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arther's Court, Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and Huck Finn's adventures - on CD. Did you realize that A Connecticut Yankee is a HUGE book? I did not. I must have just read an excerpt as a child, cuz I know I remember that story, but I never read the huge book....
Anyhow, along with all my fake, I also got some real.
Oxford's The Kings and Queens of Britain.
It rocks to finally figure out where all their kooky crazy royalty came from! ;) It talks about Robert Bruce and William Wallace (Braveheart), The Black Prince (A Knight's Tale), Richard the Lion Heart and John (Robin Hood, Ivanhoe)... I loved all these stories, but never did quite understand where they all fit in the historical sense :) Now I am getting a better picture of it all.
I am not finished with it yet, but I am really enjoying it. :)
Are you happy to have visited my boring old self today? ;)
We are starting to entertain thoughts of several projects, so I am sure I shall bore you all with tales of work and woe soon!! ;)
