Catching up on reading

I’m reading Brave New World…  somehow I managed to make it all the way through junior high and high school without having to read it.  Ditto for Animal Farm, although I believe I did read 1984.  It’s somewhat dated, but so far fairly interesting.  Always entertaining to read something that tries to predict the future state of the world, from 40 or more years back.  In the case of Brave New World, for example, there is virtually no mention of computers or personal communications devices (phones, etc) which would be an enormous part of any future world.  Of course Huxley would have had no way of foreseeing this in ’32.

One of these days I’ll finish reading John Adams, I think I made if about 2/3 of the way through.
