just finished...

A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman

not sci-fi or fantasy .. just a really good book.
funny, heart warming, emotional ... quick read ... and i'm assuming the original Swedish version is even better as often things are lost in translation.

Haven't read it, but the film was a big hit over here in Sweden.

Unfortunately I have to stop reading for pleasure and find a way to stay awake through CCIE Routing and Switch v5.0 Volume 1.

When/If I manage to finish that and its sequel, I think I would like to read Armada by Ernest Cline. I enjoyed Ready Player One, it brought back a lot of memories.

Just finished rereading "The Book of Lost Things" a while back. Great read if one likes faerie tales.

It brings back memories! Like ... like ... like using tape recorders to load your games into memory using a cassette!

Unfortunately, not the only one. I remember that too, and thinking the 5 1/4" floppy drive was a real breakthrough.
