It’s the 2nd already!

No, my title doesn’t really have to do with anything… I just thought I’d use the first thing that popped to mind when I started this entry. This is pretty much a plain-vanilla blog entry, with some ramblings about books and such.

I’ve been reading Green Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson lately, getting close to the end. It and Red Mars—great books. I’m not sure if I’m going to start reading Blue Mars (the final book in the trilogy) right away, or start something else; I’ve been anxious to start Quicksilver, of Neal Stephenson’s Baroque Cycle, but that’s a monster book in its own right… Plus, I’m halfway through How the Mind Works, by Stephen Pinker, and that’s pretty interesting stuff, too.

What’s sad awesome is I went and bought a bunch more books with my gift card and Christmas money. I’d better get reading!

I’ll have some more 2005 wrap-up stuff written tomorrow, too. And I’ll do another “Chuggnutt Zeitgeist” chock-full of stats and trivia. Perfect for all the navel gazers out there. Executive summary: traffic was up from 2004. Nice, eh?
