Hello, I am trying really hard to read The Shining By Steven King but I admit I am struggling with it. I think it is because i know the story so well from parodies etc that nothing is really that surprising, but I will persevere!!

Keep going, most of the parodies are based off of the movie and the later stages of the book are a bit different than the film.

I just finished How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming by Mike Brown

Then I'm reading about the 10 greatest medical breakthroughs on my phone
and Some question about science are answered on my Kindle.

Little Bits of History A short essay on something that happened on any day.

Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.
