Past Times

My very favorite past time in life is reading.  Given my druthers, I will take a quiet afternoon with a good book over almost anything else. I once took a bag of books and went to a secluded resort in San Jose del Cabo all alone and stayed till I read the entire bag full of books. I remember that trip fondly as I enjoyed a delicious Margarita every afternoon, took a nice siesta and started my reading all over again.  The resort had no telephones and  no TV’s and it was heaven.

I am in the process of reading Malcomb Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point”. He also wrote “Blink” and “Outliers” which were equally good.  The books are about how some people just seem to excel in life and the reasons why, the so called coincidences in life and the ways in which we can change our futures.

I, most recently, finished “Hunger Games” which is part of a fantasy novel trilogy.  Wow,wow, wow is about all I can say about that one. It is full of addictive survival scenarios in a brutal storyline about 12 districts and a capitol in what used to be our country. The games are “24 men enter and only one man leaves”. A teenage girl is the main character and the book follows her through her determination to survive. I cannot wait to read the other two.  This is storytelling at it’s best. The author is Suzanne Collins and she truly has a gift.

  1. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
