self portrait (escher)

To read makes our speaking english good.

Just finished reading Robert J. Sawyer's Illegal Alien. Science-Fiction / Mystery / Courtroom Drama. It's quite enjoyable, well crafted and thought out. But not as mind-bogglingly brilliant as the Terminal Experiment, Flashforward, or Factoring Humanity. It had more in common with Calculating God, actually. (Both very good books, but not the must-read phenomena those others represent)

Next up, I have a copy of End of an Era sitting here, which deals with time travel, so I'm really looking forward to it. And Frameshift, which seems to fit more in line with Sawyer's stronger offerings.

So, I've got stuff to read. Which is great. And people seem to be leaving me alone to read it. Which is bizarre.

I wonder if the phone's off the hook?
