I just started C.S. Lewis space trilogy. I'm half way through Out of the Silent Planet. It's interesting. Knowing his Christianity usually makes an appearance in his fiction, it's fascinating to see how he approaches space travel.

I strongly recommend reading these in order. The best part, well, one of them, is that the books are THICK! Over 700 pages, not one of them boring. My favorite combination of good, exciting reading in a big thick book.
I couldn't wait for the third book to come out in paper...I was standing outside the bookstore, with my face pressed to the window, the day the hardcover was released. I think I made the employees nervous, but they did let me in...finally. It's okay, they are used to me

It is fantastic! I promote the series as much as I can.

I hate it when I leave my book at work! I went back one day and the day nurse laughed and said they had been taking bets how long it would take me to come pick it up...20 minutes, she collected.

Those were a good read...I've read them a few times over the years.

I like those type of non-fiction too, Babe!

I found the book I lost the other day...I knew I didn't leave it in the laundromat, but it seemed to have disappeared. It was in the bottom of a grocery bag...

Just picked up the new Jim Butcher, "Side Jobs," it's a collection of all his short stories from the Dresden Files. From where I'm sitting there are six stacks of books laying around I haven't read...have to make a decision soon.
