I just want to quickly divert everyone to a cool post io9 did today on sci-fi and fantasy novels to cheer you up when you’re feeling blue. It’s a cool list with some of my favorite books on it. The books that I’ve read on the list do have a very uplifting element to them whether it be adventurous escapism, good-natured humor or great overall writing. Be sure to check the list out.
Also, in other news, New Zealand has officially issued Hobbit coins as legal tender. Amazing.
