Rainy Days

fullsizerender

February was spent trying to get outside and enjoy all the crazy warm weather we could get. It got as high as 72 degrees! I know, crazy, right?! As of today, March 1st, it’s 60°, rainy, windy with some sunshine here & there. I love rainy days. They’re perfect for grabbing several blankets, a cup of tea or coffee, and a book or two to read.

My current books to read this week are :

  • Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey (Really enjoying it so far)

“That which yields is not always weak.”

“We needs must study the whole warp and weft of it to predict the pattern on the loom.”

“For every victory,” Necthana whispered, her great dark eyes shining with a mother’s tears, “there is a price.”

-Jacqueline Carey, Kushiel’s Dart

  • Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things by Martina McAtee (Just started it but the beginning has my attention)
  • Enemy of God by Bernard Cornwell (Amazon was having difficulties yesterday so I haven’t gotten to this one like I wanted to)
  • Neuromancer by William Gibson (I’m over halfway through and I love it so far. I’m not sure why I haven’t read this one until now)

“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding…”

“Things aren’t different. Things are things.”

“His eyes were eggs of unstable crystal, vibrating with a frequency whose name was rain and the sound of trains, suddenly sprouting a humming forest of hair-fine glass spines.”

“´Wonderful´, the Flatline said,´I never did like to do anything simple when I could do it ass-backwards.´”

-William Gibson, Neuromancer
