It's time for a new Mac. My old MacBook Pro, purchased in 2008 was a great machine, and worked great for four years. I put off upgrading for a year by adding more RAM and a bigger hard drive, but eventually I reached the point where the hardware wasn't meeting my needs any more.
I love science fiction, but I've come to love baseball almost as much. As long time readers know, I came to the Church of Baseball late in life, so I don't know all the rituals and I haven't memorized all the stats ... but I do enjoy the game.
My Summer 2013 Reading List, like 2012 before it, is a space opera/military SF heavy list. I keep waiting get tired of space opera -- after all, this particular jags been going on for several years now -- but instead I find myself seeking out new books in the genre. That's not to say I'm not branching out at all; I have a smattering of fantasy novels in the list, and my graphic novel segment nicely covers horror, but at the end of the day starships battling one another for galactic dominance rule my list.
Summer is coming. You'd never know it based on the cold, rainy, and generally miserable weather we've been having in Easton, but the area's finally greened up and warmer weather is on the wind. With June only days away I'm now scrambling to come up with my summer reading list. So far the list looks a lot like last summer's list, with three sequels to books I read last summer.
