What I Just Finished Reading
Limitless by Tim Peake. I discovered, by accident, that it was 99p on Kobo, so I bought it. and I really enjoyed. I do like seeing what other people’s lives are like and he was in the Army for a long time, which is totally different to my life. It was really interesting to see how he ended up applying to be an astronaut and how he lobbied for British investment in ESA which would get him into space (among other things) which I didn’t know.
There was one bit that tells me I think about marriage differently to most people (I expect). He had the opportunity to go to America for three years and he could take his girlfriend, if they were married. So he proposed and then asked if she fancied going to America, making it clear that wasn’t the reason he proposed. It took me a little while to work out why. But if it was me I’d want to hear about the opportunity first. Because I think of marriage as practical, not romantic. The only reasons to get married, rather than just live together are practical ones.
But then given the choice between living with a partner and a rabbit, I’d choose rabbit.
I also finally finished Little Men by Louisa M Alcott that I started a re-read of years ago at a chapter a night, stopped and after having watched the March Family Web Series, I finally felt like finishing it.
What I’m Currently Reading
Emma by Jane Austen. Because I watched the web series Emma Approved and realised I remember Clueless better than the book. It is interesting to read it and compare it to Emma Approved and Clueless.
What I’m Reading Next
Whatever I feel like reading from my box of books I need to read or get rid of. Unless I get distracted by more cheap e-books (always a hazard).
