Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
I finished this book last week, and I’m still blown away. Imagine… I don’t know… The world of the Hunger Games, mixed with the Matrix, with a generous helping of 1980’s Nerd Culture, all couched in a classic Grail Quest… and this is Ready Player one. It’s got it all Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters,chases, escapes, true love, miracles... (Catch the 80's reference?)
Running a Pikermi?
As some of you may know, I just signed up for my first Half-Marathon, something I’m having second thoughts about… but that’s another blog. Well, a friend of mine, who is a freaking running machine told me that Half-Marathons should really be named “Pikermis” since the town of Pikermi is at the half way point on the marathon highway between Marathon and Athens. I don’t know… what are your thoughts?
