While I've been taking these online courses, it's been hard to keep up with reading for fun; I've read some books for the class, and for my work, but the kind of reading I normally do for amusement has been severely truncated. However, yesterday I managed to finish three books in short order.

First was The Martian Chronicles, a masterpiece by Ray Bradbury, read for the Fantasy and Science Fiction Literature class. I had read it in elementary school not long after I'd read everything by Heinlein the school library had, but I can't say that I understood what I was reading. I'll be writing my essay for this one probably tomorrow.

Second was Osprey Combat Aircraft #42: B-29 Superfortress Units of the Korean War, which I didn't find all that interesting.

Then, I finished on my cell phone, reading The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson by Mark Twain, a tale of exchange of a slave child for the owners' child. A bit uncomfortable by the standards of today.
