Following along with Boof’s 40 Day Challenge leading up to her 40th birthday, her 17th topic is:

17) A book with the best evil character

I don’t read many books with truly evil characters.  He Who Shall Not Be Named was pretty terrifying in the Harry Potter series.  The bad guys in Stieg Larsson‘s books were pretty terrifying, because they were more human, I’m afraid.  Evil people scare me more than evil wizards.

The 17th thing on my list of 40 things was to “Learn the constellations from one season.”  Pretty specific and measurable.  But sadly, I’m lacking.  But not for want of trying!  We did have several successful star gazing parties at a friend’s home – lying on a blanket in the country gazing in wonder at the many stars.  I love the app on my phone called Google Sky that shows the constellations as you look at them.  Now I can always learn something!

Off to read!
