Today in History - Books of the Future

Quick thought:

I just added a "Today in History" widget. I figure maybe something will sink in. I'm scrolling through, lecturing to myself, "You're never going to learn any of this if you don't actually read it." So I read the last event for February 10 ... "1996Deep Blue defeated Garry Kasparov in a game of chess, the first ever game won by a chess-playing computer against a World Chess Champion under chess tournament conditions." And suddenly I have the urge pick up the Turing mysteries by Donna Andrews again and get another dose of KingFischer.... the chess-playing AIP (Artificial Intelligence Personality).

Isn't it interesting how real-life and fiction are interwoven? ::Pause for thoughtful consideration::


  1. I'm a bit behind on my Donna Andrews mysteries :( I always loved it when I was in school and reading something say, about King Henry VIII and then I'd go to class and that would be the lecture of the day!

  2. I especially love that that sort o thing happens even though I tend to read popular fiction. Those books that, in their eyes, are "fluff" or "not worth the time."


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
