Discussion and meeting with the author of this challenging book, i learned new concepts and need to follow what will become the afro caraibian futurism.
Also he walked into the tea room where I was meeting my friends and I was the only one geeking out...

My first Ann Perry book and liking in so far, I am waiting for the resolution of the crimes to see if I add all her books to my Tbr...

catsuit_mango And another mention of the Prince of Wales had me drawing a family tree from Victoria to William just to understand which prince of Wales we are talking about this time (not the same as in Mrs dalloway ;)) 5d

Mrs. Dalloway | Virginia Woolf

When you are re-reading Mrs dalloway and this time you wonder who was the queen (and the prince of Wales) at that time, and you have to go to Wikipedia because that was before The crown times (the Queen was Queen Mary, Great mother of queen Elizabeth, and the prince of Wales was Edward, future king that married for love...) maybe I need a notebook of all I learned because of books ;)

After afro futurism, I am trying a Caribbean-futurism book, set in the caribbean Islands with the kreyol from Martinique. And the author will be giving a lecture in my town soon.
I can not help but wondering how strange it is to read when you don't have notions of kreyol ;)

When your doctor and therapist just listen to your symptoms and say "maybe that's age"and you are a reader, the first thing you do is look for a book that explains more ;)

I am pretty sure I read this as a teenager. I wanted to read some Anne Rice as an adult to see how I felt about her style but did not want to ruin my vision of Lestat as the crazy rock star he was and Gabrielle as the best vampire , so that serie seems safer

A long sunny run done so now I can take some time with my journal, a tea, and a good Swashbuckler ING book (I love that style but need to remember how it is called in English, for once 'de cape et d' épée' is more visual ;))

Found in a free little library close by... Published in 1961,so a lot has changed since and might even be problematic now. The illustrations are great and I ll use it for collages ;) (the set was not complete or I would not have taken one tome from it)

After some historical Arthurian stories a little futurist one and back to a favourite author (even if I find some of his characters ridiculous ;))

vlwelser These are always fun. Amazing to think he wrote mostly before we landed on the moon. 4mo
catsuit_mango @vlwelser yes, and the tichnical stuff he imagined, like cad software. 4mo
vlwelser On the other hand he'd probably be shocked that none of us has seen a slide rule in person. He kept mentioning them in the last one I listened to. 4mo

2 of the 4 books I received for my birthday (the others are epubs) and my new read the female man.
One must admire my partner still giving me books while not knowing what I have read... Luckily our taste are close enough that the city ad the city will still find someone to read it.
