I just find it odd that the Facebook readers are now asking for magic systems in their fantasy books to read.

I mean people are asking should I read this fantasy book if it hasn’t got a magic system and if it has how does the magic system hold up compared to other fantasy books.
That is a bit strange, but in a way, no stranger than people being more specific when they ask for recommendations. Maybe the people asking just want magic, always, in their books?

As for me, looking at what I read, I like everything! I like the scientific approach of Sanderson or Weeks, I like soft magic of Johnston or Stephens, I like when magic is just hinted at, like Abercrombie or Lynch, and I like books without any magic at all.
I guess I'm just easy (if the story/writing is good!) ;D

Well, I only run once a week, so I can plan around the rain 8)

And ok, I admit it, sometimes in Winter I don't go running for a few weeks ::)

I started running today after 3 years of no sports. It felt good until heavy rain and hail started ;D
Ooooh well done, you!
I also only run when it's good weather (no rain), hehe

So you'd run twice as often if you left Yorkshire?  :P
:P ;D
It's not actually that bad, you know...

I'm supposed to be moving offices, so I packed and labelled everything before I went to London mid last week.
Today I got back to the office, everything is still in the same place!
I just set up my laptop on the desk and unpacked the mouse and the power cable ::) I wonder when we're moving, actually...

Oh, I missed it as I was away!

Happy belated birthday, @NightWrite - I hope you had a great day!



(reminder to enter the contest ;D)

Wow :o
Anyway, work doesn't have charging points so something like that could never happen, hehe

I'm on my way home, wahey!
I really enjoyed these days in London but my body felt the change and I slept quite badly all days :-\ I still have tomorrow morning off work ;D

Fantasy Movies, Comic Books & Video Games / Re: Anime Favorites

Last summer Film4 (a TV channel) showed all Ghibli movies, and I really enjoyed a bunch of them - otherwise anime isn't really for me.

I've watched a few animation films without children and I was surprised to really like Inside Out and Despicable Me ;D

I think it's different in the UK. We stopped for a break halfway and he charged the car in about 20 minutes, for a 280 mile range.
It might be different for other brands, though, they don't have super-chargers.

I'm considering a hybrid when I change my company car next year, but I need to research (and see what's available in the list)

I don't think our roads are ready for self-driving cars, hehe

If hell is other people, nowhere is that more obvious than on roads ;D

Oh my, riding in a Tesla model 3 is amazing :D
My sister and brother-in-law just got one, we're going out for the day to Bath testing it - just stopped at a service station.

Oh wow. Please please tell me it had auto-driving. I'm so curious and intrigued about that.
I think it does, but they didn't use it. They just got it this week and are still discovering all the features. It's got a glass ceiling too 8)

In Dorne.
Wow ;D

What did you go with?
As if I could remember things a year ago.  ;D
Poor goat, she shall remain nameless :(

On a side note, after reading the original post, yesterday I saw the real Boaty McBoatface ;D

I wish that phones were forbidden in museums.
Or photos.
 :(
People, you're there, you have eyes, they're used for seeing! They don't need a camera filter! You could have stayed home and looked at the exhibits online, for all that you're seeing them ::)

*grumpy old woman*

I won't be able to watch it anyway, being Amazon prime and all (I don't have any special TV subscriptions apart from sky)

Get your sister to get amazon prime for the children tv series and you can borrow the password back at home.
I just asked, indirectly. Not an option (as I expected) - she doesn't share passwords ::)
