I finished Treasure Island a couple of days ago. Now I'm reading Around the World in 80 Days.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

Currently on a road trip with some friends and I listened to The Magician's Nephew while driving through the night.

Somehow nearly made it 30years on this earth avoiding Narnia. I'm pretty excited to read em all.

Good guy.
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

J.R.R. Tolkien



Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.
