Hello World!

For the first time since early Summer, I actually progressed quite a bit a novel again today. Over the past few months, the SlipstreamWeb launch not only took up a lot of my time, but the little reading I did still do mostly consisted of computer manuals and a set of books on World War II I'd picked up at a second-hand book fair.

The only novel I tried to start was 'Lord of the Rings', again, but unfortunately after having read 10 pages of it I wasn't able to read anything for a full week and I just never got back to it, as usual. Unfortunately my book buying pattern didn't change at all over Summer, so now I'm left with an amazingly huge pile of books I still have to get through - I should probably be done around Fall 2005 or so.

Anyway, the book I've started to read is Orson Scott Card's 'Ender's Game', which I've had for ages, but which somehow never really managed to interest me enough to actually start reading - sometimes books have that once you've had them for long enough. I'm now around page 60 and really enjoying it, so hopefully I won't get sidetracked with this book as well. And maybe once I finish it I'll even finally be able to get myself to read through 'The Lord of the Rings' - surely if everyone loved the book I should be able to as well, right?
