I feel a bit accomplished today because yesterday I wrote two letters and they are waitng to be sent out in the mail. I have been thinking a lot about writing letters and only have about 3 to write so it was nice to sit down and write. It is weird that the older I get, the more I have to be in the exact state of mind to want to write letters. I mean it is something I love to do but I cannot force myself to do it, I have to want to do it. So, getting two done in one sitting was a great thing.
I have been reading a lot recently. I am liking being able to read and being able to just lose myself in a book. I am currently reading New York: A Novel by Edward Rutherfurd and really enjoying it. I am always a fan of historical novels and Rutherfurd does a pretty good job with the genre and his following family trees through history. I have read three of his other book: Sarum, Russkia, and London. All were fun to read and I need to read Forest next...because I missed it when it was released.
I am also awaiting the broadcast of the new series Game of Thrones. I have read the first book in that series and am wanting to read the second book as well. It is definitely a fun read and I am looking forward to the series on tv to see how it translated to screen. There are some aspects of the book I want to see if they make it to air since they are rather replusive to most people. Namely the twincest that goes on between two messed up siblings who are power hungry. If that makes it to air, even on HBO, I will be shocked. It is an important part og the story when it comes to the two characters because it sets off an important event or two and shows how deeply disturbed the two characters are. So, it should be an interesting series to watch and I hope it keeps my interest unlike the crappy Camelot where I was only liking Morgan le Fey, The actress that plays her is excellent...too bad the actor who plays Arthur is out of his depth.
And with that, I will end this entry and head off to do other things online.
