The dogwood tree by the driveway was absolutely brilliant red in the sunshine yesterday morning. We had to take a picture of it.

Anathem - Redux

Anathem Anathem by Neal Stephenson

My review

Just started reading. it's almost 900 pages. This is going to take a while.

As of 10/1/2008:

I'm up to 300+ pages into 'Anathem' by Neal Stephenson. Wordy. After the first hundred pages the story finally gets going. He does a lot of 'world building' and coining of names.I like the Baroque Cycle books better, yet this is still a good read. I took a break and read Alexander McCall Smith's latest Isabel Dalhousie book - 'The Comforts of a Muddy Saturday'. I like McCall Smith's No 1 Ladies Detective series too!
