I don't have my book with me today because I drove to work, so I am going to share the opening sentence of the ebook that I am reading at the moment.
Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott
"I call our world Flatland, not because we call it so, but to make its nature clearer to you, my happy readers, who are privileged to live in Space".Yep. Weird. I am really loving this book, even though I only started it last night. It is a science fiction novella from 1884 and it is really strange in a very funny and clever way. Even though I haven't finished this yet, I think that most people would find this a very funny and worthwhile read.
