Happy Sunday all! Despite missing Sunday Salon last week I don’t have too much to write today. I finished one book since my last post, The Amber Spyglass, by Philip Pullman. It is the last book in the “His Dark Materials” trilogy. Just like the first two, it was very engaging and kept me on the edge of my seat. I regret slightly waiting so long to read it, because I didn’t remember the details of the first two books that well and it does rely on them. It is really one long story broken into three books. However, once I got into it it was hard to put down. I also found that, unlike the other two books, this one switched contexts between more characters more frequently, which was a little disconcerting at times. The ending was satisfying and bittersweet. The premise of the series is original and creative and the ending does not let you down or turn it into a more run-of-the-mill storyline. Overall, I definitely recommend the series!
I’m almost done with another book, Woman: An Intimate Geography, by Natalie Angier. I am finding it fascinating and learning a lot. The human body is an amazing, complex system.
I have a desire to re-read the Harry Potter series and am debating whether to get the first one next time I go to the library (if it’s available). I am a little worried that re-reading it will be a little bit of a let down. But I enjoyed them so much the first time around I don’t see why I wouldn’t enjoy them a second time.
In other random thoughts, I am thinking about moving this blog to wordpress instead of blogger sometime soon. I moved my other blog, Musings on Peace, to wordpress a few weeks ago and I like wordpress a lot better than blogger. So keep an eye out for a post about such a move and please follow me over to wordpress when the time comes!
