Have a Merry Christmukkwanza

Well, we don't exactly have snow (unlike the good Mr. Dvorkin), but I can't think of much better than a few days off from work, time spent with family, and the heaping helping of books that I always manage to get under the tree.

And in the interest of spreading some holiday cheer, I just finished David Dvorkin's Time for Sherlock Holmes, and I'm delighted to say it was an absolute blast. I grew up reading Sherlock Holmes, and Wells' The Time Machine was one of my all-time favorite reads as a kid; Dvorkin weaves them together wonderfully, to surprising and satisfying result. If you want to know where to get it, I suggest looking here.

Now, I suppose, I'll have to ask him what of his I should check out next...
