This is for Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days in which THEY DO NOT TRAVEL BY BALLOON. That aside, I loved the book growing up, and though I know the twist with the timing at the end it still gets me every time.
In other news: The Ekka has come and gone, but I have put up my sketches from it, including a page of ducks. I have caught up on scanning older sketchbook pages so I will post them in the intervals between Daleks. I am reading Tintenherz (Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart, in German) and enjoying it immensely but have to read it one.word.at.a.time and can’t speed through the exciting parts, which makes it very frustrating at points. My mother is reading my English copy to my father, and says it is a beautiful book to read aloud.
