This was a bit lazy of me, I admit, as I work in Liverpool. But it really is a beautiful place.
I’ve been spoiled this month. So many good books to choose from. I’ve read 7 book this month.
To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee – 4.5 out of 5 stars
Can I have an Atticus? And a Scout for that matter? Such an amazing book, and so before its time. Scout’s innocence is a perfect window for all the dark things she experiences. It is a story that will stay with me for a long time. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to read this classic *hangs head in shame*
Chester is always a fun place for a photo walk. Armed with my stock lens and my 16mm fisheye. The cathedral, the wall, the cute tame squirrels… what’s not to love?
6 books this month.
Andy Weir – The Martian (4 out of 5 stars) The voice, man. The VOICE. Such a good fun book. The research that must have gone into this is mind boggling. I was really rooting for the protagonist throughout. My only criticism was that I wanted him to break down at some point, and really have a low point. As it stands, he seems to go from problem to problem like a typical hero. But still, such a great read.
OH MY GOD IT’s COMING BACK IT’S COMING BACK!
A tale of the Internet fandom that created Internet fandoms.
*spoilers, I guess? For a twenty year old show?*
So this weekend, I experienced a lot of cool things. Some sort of magic happens when you get a group of like-minded geeks together in great number. I was proud to be part of the pack.
I’ve had a little epiphany today. For one reason or another, a short journey ended up with me being sat in my car for about an hour on my own. Now, because I assumed this would be a quick journey, I left my trusty Kindle at home (currently reading: Life Of Pi, and Oh Em Gee is it beautiful).
