I'm only getting on here to lodge my protest.

I'm going to bed - but I don't want to. I want to stay up all night and read Ender's Game. But I'm complying with grown up rules - especially the ones about not showing up to work after fiction-induced sleep-deprivation, suffering from fiction withdrawals. As Ashley Clements would say, "500 adult points!"

I will add just two things that terrify me:
1. Peter Wiggins
2. Orson Scott Card's uncanny premonition not just of the internet's existence, but of the way it would work. I mean, he's writing in 1977, but everyone has iPads and are using "net forums" to communicate. Hmmm


  1. Cannot wait to read that!!! It's been sitting on my desk staring at me...but summer. Summer I will get to it :)

  2. Kayla - definitely wait till summer... if I had read this during classes, it would have been like, course-work? out the window!

  3. I guess I need to read it...hmmm, well some day. Someday after I finish my school readings, Restaurant at the End of the Universe, Les Miserables, Ruthless Trust, Lady in Waiting, and 7 Habits of High Effective People (all current reads)...someday. And maybe someday my book list will actually shrink instead of perpetually growing...probably not ;)
