Since my last post (“Evolutionary Change“) when I was praising the Kindle, I’ve probably read more than I have in a long time!
I’ve read the sequel to “Life Free or Die” and “Citadel” – called The Hot Gate (Troy Rising), I’ve read “Hellhole” by Kevin J Anderson & Brian Herbert, and “The Parasite” by Neal Asher, and I’m currently working my way through “A Kingdom Besieged” by Raymond E Feist.
It’s fantastic that the Kindle has allowed me to rediscover my love of reading, although it may be entirely coincidental that right now there is a selection of great fiction that I want to read!
On the Big Screen side of things, I’m somewhat dissapointed to discover that the remake of one of my favourite films ever has been cancelled.
Unless you’ve been living in a proverbial Scifi/Fantasy Desert for the last year though, you’ll doubtless be aware of the forthcoming “Game of Thrones” from HBO. I believe it’s being screened in the UK on the same day as it premiers in the US courtesy of Sky Atlantic, so I’m waiting for this one with a keen anticipation!
In other news, Tinker went for an unscheduled and unexpected swim the other day, having been chased in to a river by some other friendly and playful Greyhounds. He was no worse the wear, but we certainly had some thinking to do working out how to get a very wet dog back home again in the car!
In the meantime, here’s a short video of Tinker stretching his legs!
I’ve also taken the plunge and started selling a few bits & bobs on eBay. I’ve occasionally bought items, but never sold anything, so it’s a bit of a new experience for me. Somewhat predictably I keep checking to see if there are any bids.
So come on, hurry up you “Watchers”, I can see you! Don’t just watch, BID BID BID! 🙂
