    I'm combining two pleasures: reading

    and train travel. 'Slow Train to Switzerland' by Diccon Bewes is an account of two journeys 150 years apart following the same route from the UK to Swtzerland. I'm really enjoying the descriptions of days gone by and the modern equivalents which, having made some of the...

    I Especially Adore Audiobooks.

    Chores go faster! Hands-free! Classics and physics and metaphysics... it is a smorgasbord, a cornucopia of wealth. Amazing variety of experiences in autobiographies, amazing amount of speculation in biographies. Spectacular variety in religions. Love it!

    The Asimov Story

    OK, folks, you asked for it, so now I'll share it. The year was 1983.  My best friend at the time, Haig, was a huge Trekkie. This was just after the Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan" had come out, and there was a Trek convention (actually, I ...

    Thought This Was Worth Sharing

    A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him. "I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will." Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry...

    Reading is my favorite thing to do.

    I like real books not just reading on my ipad. My favorite books used to be Harry Potter but Im getting more into Divergent series now. Reading allows me to escape everything sometime. I can get into another world and not have to worry about everything else.

    Sometimes I read to much.

    Right now I'm reading The Time Traveler's Wife

    and I'm almost done. No spoilers please!! I am awed by the love Henry and Clare have for each other. Does something like that ever really exist irl?? Or like Noah's love for Allie from The Notebook? I don't really think it does but it's nice to read about it.

    I'm currently reading Fifty Shades of Grey.

    I never planned on reading it, but I had a male friend tell me it was a decent read and a cute story. Half way through the first book I have to agree so far it's cute and not really what I expected. For right now it's something to read and at least I'll know what the other...

    I recently got to finishing a book I had

    for a long time. Dumbing Us Down by John Taylor Gatto. The book is a summary of author's observations on the education system in the USA. As a teacher with years of practise he also tries to find an alternative to it and push forward ideas buried for hundreds of years.
