Contact by Carl Sagan



So I'm currently reading this book. I haven't read too much of it. I saw the movie and own it so I'm trying not to compare. I've found that the book is very different than the movie. First of all the book has a female president, then the lead character Ellie doesn't by herself discover the signal. I think I actually like the book better. I remember in college in my Astronomy class watching Cosmos with Dr. Carl Sagan in them. In his little spaceship discovering the cosmos. Those were so fun to watch.

Dean Koontz


One of my all time favorite authors is Dean Koontz. I've read tons of his books. The book I'm currently reading right now is Frankenstein Book 2 : City of Night which is actually written by Dean Koontz and Ed Gorman. But it's really good, not the typical Frankenstein story. He actually will have 3 Frankestein books. I've read the first one and the second one just came out in July and the third one will come out in 2006. I totally recommend Dean Koontz as an author to read.

Scrapbooking

I'm making a scrapbook of my cat. Yes I know she's just my cat, but to me she's my little baby. My husband just doesn't understand, all he says is "She's just a cat" Just a cat? Just a cat? Well he thinks I'm crazy for making one of her. Oh well. I made one for my son. I actually like scrapbooking, although I never have time. I end up bringing all my stuff to work and working on it during my lunch break.
