Adolph Hitler awakens unhurt and un-aged in 2008. People think he is an actor who never breaks character. But he is not. He is Hitler.
Pretty funny so far.....

I recently purchased Peter & Max by Bill Willingham. It will probably be my next read, after I finish the library books I have checked out: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, Wicked by Gregory Maguire, and The Little PAris Bookshop by Nina George.
The Handmaid's Tale, what's the difference between science fiction and speculative fiction? This was the book that raised the question. Let us know what you think of it.
My most recent book purchase was "The Hopefuls" by Jennifer Close. I'm planning to start reading it tonight, before bed.
Earlier today, I found 3 books that I want to buy for Christmas gifts - even if 1 of the gifts is to myself - isn't that terrible, lol.
Well, since my last post in October, my most recent book purchase was today. I ordered "We Have Always Lived in the Castle" by Shirley Jackson.
I couldn't believe it was available at Walmart's website, so I can have it delivered to my local store.
Happy reading in 2017!
