I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I had a restless night, more so than usual. I'm often awake for a few minutes at 3 a.m., but this morning I found myself wide awake at 4 a.m. Sometimes, if the right radio show is on, the program can lull me back to slumber. A quick check of CBC radio found a documentary about this Icelandic saga--what is says about Icelandic history, society, etc. Perfect! I heard enough of the radio program to know that I'd be interested to read the saga and then I was unconscious again until my alarm.
Thank goodness for CBC radio!
