Now Reading: Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Just Finished: NA
What ever happened to the book that I had started in my last Now Reading post? I strongly suspect that I’ve lost it, or at least seriously misplaced it.
I am not heartbroken over the matter, though. There’s an old idea called “the fifty page test.” If, after reading the first fifty pages of a book, you find yourself bored, disinterested or otherwise disengaged from the work, you should simply stop there and find something more enjoyable to read. Of course, I disregarded this advice. I tried to soldier on and probably somehow subconsciously disposed of the book.
Well, it was probably just not time for me to try to read a serious non-fiction book, but it could be time for me to read a non-serious science-fiction book.
Coincidentally, the 2011 Sci Fi Experience runs from January 1 to February 28. It is less of a traditional reading challenge and more of an “opportunity to get together as a community and share a love of science fiction,” as the organizer puts it. I’m looking forward to the experience.
