Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...



Attention All Challengers! S0....life here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

Challenge Complete: Sci-Fi Experience


Carl at Stainless Steel Droppings hosted his "non-challenge" 2013 Sci-Fi Experience (or, if you prefer, Science Fiction Experience) again this year.  Even though Carl doesn't call it a challenge--I'm took it as one.  Since I've gotten away from reading science fiction the way I used to 20-30 years ago, it's a challenge for me to work SF back into my reading diet.  Carl's event always gives me that extra push necessary to put some SF on the TBR stack each year.  

The goal? Just to read, discuss, and enjoy some science fiction during the months of January and February.  No required reading levels.  Movie viewing also welcome.  And, hey, I've already planned on doing some science fiction reading in the new year, so I won't be adding much to the ol' reading pile. Low pressure and fun!  So go on and join us!

Reviews were not required, but we were encouraged to post them and if you'd like to them out then go here.

1. The Web Between the Worlds by Charles Sheffield (1/21/13)
2. Slippage by Harlan Ellison (1/19/13)
