After I'm done with Little Brother, I'm going to read Redwall or something. Something light. Something involving furry animals who *don't* have their backs broken (Mancheeeeee!), and something that does not in any way involve an evil Homeland Security.
Am absolutely *loving* Little Brother, as an aside. I mean, it's an absolute mindwarp, but I can't get enough of Marcus! Plus, who hasn't always wanted to know tips for countering potentially illegal surveillance?!
I do find myself wondering how much sense any of it would make to an older, less-tech-inclined reader. I'm not saying that I'm wildly knowledgeable about the ins and outs of everything computer-related, but I can read xkcd without too much confusion, and I can keep my system running relatively smoothly. I wonder how the book would read, though, to someone who doesn't have a working knowledge of blogs and filters and public keys.
Are you all still rocking solid, friends? Keeping the reading going? Stay strong!
4:30 PM Update (Shel): No, I am not staying strong. A cute adorable cat is curled in a ball, asleep beside me.
She looks so happy.
Staring isn't making her stop.
An angry kitty is glaring at me, ya'll.
If I can't nap, nobody can!!!!!!!!!
So, I'm trying to be a good little student and do assigned reading. But, my brain keeps thinking about Shiver, and Alcatraz Versus the Knights of Crystallia. Those books are much more fun. And I know there'll be time for them later. Because I won't be able to sleep tonight. Not with all this coffee. And my new fear that my cat will seek revenge for me waking her up.
Back to the books! Charge!
