Exercise and Reading

14 04 2010

I walked around the park with my friend and his dog for about an hour today.  It was in the upper 70s, but not too bad.  I do have leash burn on the back of my leg, though.  The dog got way too excited and ran around me, so ouch.

I’ve finished several books lately:  the first Dresden Files book, the first Mysterious Benedict Society book, the second and third Percy Jackson books, and Sunken Treasure.  Out of the group, I enjoyed The Mysterious Benedict Society the most.  I’ll definitely pick up the second one at some point, and hopefully I’ll continue to enjoy the series through the 3rd that I have from iTunes.  The Percy Jackson books are definitely better to read in print than to listen to on audio.  Definitely much quicker to read.  I now understand why The Lightning Thief was such a short audiobook.  It looks like all the Percy Jackson books are under 200 pages so far.

Ooh, I’ve been meaning to read the Mysterious Benedict Society. My parents read it and I read the first couple chapters when I picked it up from the library for them and thought the beginning at least was quite excellent. I’ll have to see if the local library has it.

Y’know what you should read? Rumo and His Miraculous Adventures. Very bizarre and fun book, I think you’d like it.
