Quick Little Post, First Project 10 Book Completed!

I made a little project to read ten books on my shelf before buying something new. I apparently miscounted and hadn't realized I was at ten books, I already started another book in the queue. So delayed celebrations, hurray!

I did it! First book I will buy once done with Ringworld by Larry Niven (which I started before noticing I'd done ten books) is The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson. And probably The Urth of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe.

That is all. :D

Review: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlen (spoilers)

I made a gushy, sentimental Reading Now! post on this book and I'm still feeling quote emotionally attached.

I received this fortune cookie message many years ago. I scanned it. Occasionally I have moments where I let myself consider it could be true and my eyes water, my heart races. We live in an amazing time with the  blistering pace in technology advancement. But in my heart of hearts, I don't believe I will live on the moon or Mars. Low Earth Orbit, though... :)

 I'm sure I have some spoilers to spill, so let's just go on with it.
