I believe I forgot to add post this weekend in the middle of the night. I was busy. I am sorry.
It was an enjoyable weekend, so it makes up for the fact, right?
I am glad the weather is back to being habitable. I am not a cold weather person. I will take hot and humid any day.
With the sudden surge in temperature, I have noticed that the entire campus has turned into a pseudo beach.
On my fifteen minute walk to class I see numerous people naping on the hills, backpack beneath the head and a book over the face. On these same hills guys run to and fro throwing a frisbee, football, or baseball. Beneath their airborn exchanges lie the ladies in full beach attire trying to tan between classes.
And it is only spring. If only I was fortunate enough to stay here for the summer and get a part time job that gave me time to relax and lie about in the sun (or shade). But no, I shall return home for the summer and spend my days in a cubicle checking ketchup bottle caps for flaws.
I am not fully bitter. (Read, yes I am)
I do get time to read. That is what my summers allow me to do, if not become the bronze God of the hill. Last summer, I managed to make it through a large stack of books. This summer will be no different, except for which books I tackle.
If anyone has any suggestions on books to read, let me know. I am interested in Sci-fi/fantasy, humor, philosophy, and I will try most anything under the sun. I also am a fan of reading books that are acclaimed to be great. Just to say that I have read them, and then am able to say why it is not in my opinion.
My current list for the summer includes:
- A SpineHolder’s Manual – Neal Hurd
- My Boring Ass Life – Kevin Smith
- The Once and Future King – T.H. White
- The Republic – Plato
- The Bible
- The Golden Compass – Philip Pullman
- The Subtle Knife – Philip Pullman
- The Amber Spyglass – Philip Pullman
I suppose that is all. Let me know what you have for me.
