Book-Reading

So, I was off to a good start this year, reading 5 books in the first part of January.  I’m a little at a standstill right now, mainly because I’m getting sick of Sherlock Holmes on my PPC (but am determined to finish the collection.  Ugh), and am out of Audiobooks to listen to on my commute.  I should probably make more time for reading paper books (I  finished two on my last business trip), since that’s where I have a bit of a queue lined up.

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), I’m abandoning Dune, an audiobook I’ve had for awhile.  I was a bit apprehensive to try it to begin with (20 hours is a big commitment), but then saw it on a list of 1000 books you must read.  So I tried it out.  I think this comic explains the main reason I put the book down.  Less than one part into the book, and I couldn’t understand half of what was being said.

At least I have a few good audiobooks waiting for me in the next few weeks.  Hopefully I don’t become too stagnant.

  1. Sooo – I Googled myself (like ya do) and discovered this page: http://flessnerfam.com/math265h/vanessa.html

    Oh, the memories! So anyway, I followed it back to your main site, and it appears you’re married with kid(s)! (Of course, all the details are protected, which is a good idea, so it’s hard to tell.) Congrats! Just thought I’d say hi and wish you well, and mention that I too got off to a good start reading-wise this year and then totally came to a standstill. Babies > Books

    And I loved the comic you linked to.

    Okay, I think that’s all. Back to work. I know I started off working this morning – how on earth did I end up here?
