It has been a long time since I failed to finish a single book in a month. What has happened is I do most of my reading on the metro and whilst I’m still making many metro journeys, I’ve been distracted by a game on my phone. I used to look disdainfully at the other travellers on their phones, the digital generation addicted to their black mirrors.
The game I have been caught up in is 2048 a number puzzle game, many of you may know. You pair number tiles with the objective of reaching 2048 (2+2=4, 4+4=8….1028+1028=2048). I have managed to reach the goal of 2048 on 4 occasions, so now the game has less hold over me and I’m doing more reading again.
There are a few books I’m “Currently Reading”. I expect to finish Isaac Asimov’s “Nemesis” very soon, there is also “Where’s My Jetpack?: A Guide to the Amazing Science Fiction Future That Never Arrived.” which has short chapters on different technology that has yet to arrive, a great read for the smallest room. On my phone I started Pickwick Papers many months ago and more recently War and Peace, I’m just 3% of the way through Tolstoy’s epic, so don’t expect a review anytime soon. There are also a few books on my shelves waiting to be read.
I expect to be reviewing a few books in June.
