Ahh, the new Kim Stanley Robinson book made it to the library!  It's very exciting when your favorite author releases a new book when he only puts one out every three years or so.  Of course, it came in on my late day, and I'm stuck at work till 9pm.  But then I am going home, getting directly into my jim-jams, plopping into bed with cats, and reading till I can't keep my eyes open anymore.

I will report back with what is likely to be a glowing review in like four days or so.  I AM SO EXCITED EEE.  This on top of Curiosity this week, I'm just all of a sudden flung back to 1999, when I was fucking obsessed with KSR and space and Mars and NASA and everything.  Sigh.

I understand your space feels. I don't know that author though, but as someone that studied astronomy in college, I UNDERSTAND <3

That is so cool that you studied astronomy. I only had the chance to take one class, but I loved it so much.

Ugh, Kim Stanley Robinson is THE BEST. He wrote my favorite books ever, the Mars Trilogy, which contain my favorite fictional character of all time, Sax Russell. I literally cannot recommend him enough. KSR is the definition of a flawless victory.

(My God, that icon. Buffy's face. Heeeeeeeee.)

It was fun, but since I didn't go to grad school, it's sort of a useless degree at this point!

I have heard of the Mars Trilogy (probably from you more than once). I really should read that sometime :)

I have them as either PDFs or txt files, if you ever want.

(I feel the same way about my undergrad degree; I would imagine a lot of people do. Sigh.)

Heh I might actually take you up on that, because lately I'm more inclined to read on a computer than an actual book anymore.
