one consequence of procrastination

is that I couldn’t read all I wanted to over what to the full-time student crowd is known as Spring Break. I turned in a paper on Wednesday and had class Thursday night, so I didn’t get much of a Break at all. I did spend ten minutes in Central Park last Wednesday as a treat before this new cold snap so if that counts…

I did finish two books this week. First up is a book I fell in love with.

by Neil Gaiman

I suggest you read Melanie‘s review. She’s written more eloquently than I ever could. I didn’t have the fortune of listening to an author-narrated audio book but enjoyed every minute of it nonetheless. I kept it as a special gift for myself to enjoy this past Shabbat.

I also finished listening to

Maths and I? We get along pretty well (even though I can’t count). Chemistry? That’s ok though it is my only known proven cure for insomnia. Biology? Swoon. Physics? Not a good match. I don’t know why I hadn’t read this before because it made a lot more sense than many of the courses I’ve taken over the years. I didn’t find it earth shatteringly brilliant, but that could be because I listened to it on the train in the morning while high school girls did whatever noisy chattering they do each morning and it was drowned out.

  1. I’m flattered! Thank you for the compliment and the link.

    I’ve also developed a passion for Neil Gaiman that won’t be satisfied until I have read everything he ever published.

  2. I haven’t read either of them. I’ve been told I’d enjoy Neil Gaiman but I’m not sure. I have been told I’d like a lot of things that I just didn’t enjoy… so I’m not sure. Hrmmm…

    Oh and Stephen Hawking has recently (a few months ago) accepted a research position at Waterloo University in Waterloo, On, about an hour from me. Its the biggest university in Canada for theoretical physics. My friend goes there and I’m so jealous.
