Weekly Journal April 25-May 1 2011


The trees are about to sprout leafs and we will have our week of spring soon. It has been a stressful week but I managed to listen to George R. R. Martin’s fantasy soap A Game of Thrones. The TV series is also coming along well. I am pleasantly surprised the TV series follows the book so well.

I used to re read books a lot more than I do now. It is all the new releases I want to read and review. But this weekend I sat down with Out of the Dark and just enjoyed it.

The seasons are getting close to ending. Fringe has the machine running with Peter inside and SGU had another great episode, I really like this their own descendants arc.

That was all for this week, keep making suggestions for books to read.
