In an effort to finish some of this non-work related reading, I've made and put this read breadcrumb on my thoughtStream so that:
1. the read objects don't get lost.
2. they get read.
3. this forms a node for linked data objects on my stream(s).

I've formed bundles of reads before, but some of the books didn't get read. Hopefully, this breadcrumb will be found again and again on my thoughtStream until all the books get read, and hopefully be interlaced with other thougthStream object. I've given myself till 2018, one year to finish. It should be plenty of time, no?

I've pinned this post until December 31, 2018 at 11:30PM.

A Spell for Chameleon

#author.Piers Anthony

This is a book I read in my youth, somewhere in the early 80s. It is the first in the Xanth series of I don't know how many books. I read a lot of them! They mostly involve quests! Young characters seeking their identity. Now at 49yr (2018), I hope to have found my magical powers already. And perhaps I am like Bink, a paradox. 

Spoiler alert!
Bink is main character. He is seeking answers to his identity. In a land of magic, he seems to have none. Are you like me, like he, like JoJoBrand3 in three?

No magical powers, yet we have in some higher order dimension, along some variance, magician level divergences! Some of us will be clustered together by the Harry Porter Sorting Hat algorithm into this identity, the identity of JoJoBrand3.
