From nowhere we came, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.

Books

Anyone who knows me knows I can go through books as if they were Pez. I ran across a blog where someone tried out a book challenge in which they aimed to read 50 books a year, posting a list as it grew. Sounds like great fun, so I am starting my own list / outing myself as the huge fantasy and sci-fi nerd that I am.
