I have added two destinations to my travel itinerary - armchair travel that is - for this long weekend.
I am visiting Dictionopolis, the Island of Conclusions (which can only be reached by jumping), and watching out for the demons who ramble about in the Mountains of Ignorance with Milo and Tock in The Phantom Tollbooth. This clever, clever book by Norton Juster was on my Summer Reading List and with summer just about over, I figured I had better hop to it.
Also, I am making a quite unexpected stop in The Afterlife with Sum by David Eagleman. A frequent commenter, Tullik, recommended this after reading my entry on Einstein's Dreams (here) by Alan Lightman. Instead of taking a look at thirty different conceptions of time, Eagleman, a neuroscientist, offers forty tales from the afterlives. It is quite witty and imaginative and unsettling at the same time.
Now there is the fun of armchair travel - one always has the appropriate outfit for any change in plans.
