Watership Down by Richard Adams.  I saw the animated feature as a child, but am even more thrilled with the original novel.

I haven't thought about that book, or movie, in years!


It was a good film as I recall.

Apparently it's still in print.  My wife has an old copy of it sitting around that reads Now An Amazing Motion Picture! on its front cover, and I decided to pick it up.

I'm reading Club Dead by Charlaine Harris as a way of easy reading, destressing. :)

I'm presently reading David Bodanis' 'Passionate Minds', the great love affair at the time of the Enlightenment between the poet Voltaire and the great thinker and scientist, Emilie du Chatelet, the latter a woman who rightly deserves to be better known than she presently is.


Among many other things, she worked out the concepts that would lead directly to the "squared" part of Einstein's revolutionary equation: E=mc2.

I am read "Freewill"  by Sam Harris.  It is a very small but interesting book.

I have a copy of Harris' book but I've as yet got to read it. The whole business of "freewill" fascinates me.
