Don't you wish more people would do that?
Day 2: Today is World Book Day ( http://www.worldbookday.com/ )
For some people, at least. There seems to be a bit of confusion over this. I heard this fact this afternoon while listening to CBC One out of Toronto. I looked it up online to find out more, and found out that UNESCO also designated April 23rd as World Book Day. Me? I don't care as long as people are reading them!
So, in the spirit of World Book Day, what are you reading?
I would like to say that I am currently reading something in-depth and thought-provoking, but in truth, I am reading this:
Not a bad book - but a little on the fluffy side. I am reading this romance novel to let my brain rest a bit after finishing this whopper in 36 hours:
I love S.M. Stirling's books! I think I have mentioned this before, but I am all about the future dystopia. This is the second book in a trilogy that is a sister series to another trilogy by Stirling. The original trilogy (Island in the Sea of Time, Against the Tides of Years, On the Oceans of Eternity) concern a Nantucket that goes back in time - to 1250BC. It's a fascinating story of a small group of people with 20th century technology (that is slowly degrading and in limited supply) who have to make their way in an Bronze Age world. The second trilogy (Dies the Fire, The Protector's War, Meeting at Corvallis) concerns what happens to the rest of the world - mainly Oregon/Washington/Idaho and the UK in the second book... the clincher being it wasn't the same thing that happened to Nantucket. The rest of the world experienced a permanent power outage - something primal in physics changed - not even explosives or guns would go off. Stirling has a talent to draw me into his worlds like no one else - and he is the only author I will buy hardcover with no qualms at all.
