Speaking of white people in the jungle, I finished reading the original Tarzan of the Apes yesterday. I didn't love it, but it held my interest all the way through, and I enjoyed learning the details of Tarzan's unusual background. It took me a while to read, though, due to my unemployment. Yeah, you'd think I would have MORE time to read when not working, and I really do, but I usually choose to do other things. When I'm working, on the other hand, breaks are usually for reading. One thing I noticed is that Edgar Rice Burroughs made the common mistake of having lions live in the jungle, when they're actually native to the savanna and grasslands. Also, I wonder if I should try reading any of Burroughs' stories about Mars. Regardless, I'm now reading Robert Rankin's The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse, which I quite like so far.
Also, happy birthday to speciesof1!
