My Place & Yours Mon 25 Jan 10

MY PLACE & YOURS: What am I reading?
Better late than never I'm adding my two bits to the My Place & Yours meme now hosted by Vic over at Punky&Me.

Now Vic thinks this is a dull theme, an ordinary theme, one done over and over again … am I labouring the point?

But I don’t think so because I am so excited because I'm reading a book at the moment that I’ve been trawling op shops and second hand stores for years and thought I’d never find it ... Book 2 of the West of Eden science fiction trilogy by Harry Harrison.

All three books ... this is the best trilogy.

So how excited was I when I found it--the missing Book 2--this weekend at Trash & Trivia in Ballarat for a whopping $5 ... and it fabo condition! Woo hoo!

I posted how I felt about this trilogy back in December last year because I was excited about finding Book 1 at an op shop in Melbourne … and because I thought I’d never find the missing Book 2.

Even though I got the book yesterday I’m already more than half way through it. I had to read part of it before I went to sleep last night and it kept me spell bound as I travelled from Ballarat on the train to work this morning.

I figure I’ll finish it tonight … and then I might reread the trilogy from start to finish ... just for shits and giggles! LOL

Now, I've read none of the books in your trilogy, but for me, the best thing about your post is the authors name... is it his real name...?! I love it!

Thank you for playing along this week!
