Have You Cheated on Your Favorite Author?

I wish I had more time to read, but I need to divide my free time into many different mediums (TV, movies, reading, games, music and podcasts). When I do make time to read, I tend to stick to certain authors I know and am familiar with because I want to ensure that I'm enjoying what I'm reading. Here's an example: With Anne Rice's new Lestat novel coming out, I'll be picking that book up without a doubt. It's been a long time since I've read a Rice novel and I'm really looking forward to it.

The Long, Long Journey Toward Recovery

I wasn't going to write another post about healing from my torn Achilles injury but I think it's important for me to document this past week so that not only can I reflect on how I'm doing, but I can also help others have a true sense of what it's going to take to recover from such an injury. A quick recap: I tore my Achilles on June 26, 2014 and I'm writing this on September 20, 2014. I'm nearly three months into the recovery period. If you want to read the entire saga, I recommend that you start back at the beginning so that you have a true sense of what you're up against in recovering.

What's the Point of Your Quest?

I had the privilege last night of hearing Chris Guillebeau speak last night at Indy Hall in Philadelphia in promotion of his new book "The Happiness of Pursuit." A friend of mine had asked me last week if I would be interested in hearing Chris speak. To be honest, I wasn't quite certain if I wanted to go since walking and getting around while I'm still recovering from my torn Achilles injury, but my friend and I had already made plans for dinner and I thought that taking a risk and trying something new might open new doors for me.
