Another thing I can’t believe – that I’ve never Dune before. I dug out my brother’s Dune books from the garage yesterday and plan on reading the first one on the plane.
Side Note – It took me ages to find the first Dune book among all of my brother’s books in the garage. I was digging through the multitude of sci fi books (Star Trek, Isaac Asimov stuff, etc.etc.) and every time I thought I found Dune, it turned out to be one of the 50 prequels or sequels. I finally found it after wading through books and dust and then asked my brother why he didn’t have the foresight to put all the Dune books in one place. Because, I don’t know, that would have made things slightly more organized?!
Actually, while trying to find Dune, I found a few other books of his that I didn’t know he had or maybe I wasn’t interested in before, like Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash. I’ve never read anything by him and have wanted to for a while now.
So that means that while I’m still really stressed about all the stuff I need to do before England, I already have my plane reading material – Dune and The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, which I picked up last week. At least I have that taken care of. Now for everything else. . .
