a new book

As you all know, I am always reading something ... usually two or three books at the same time. Right now I've been reading a new book called Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. I received an advance uncorrected proof through its publisher Harper Collins. It's fantasy but based in reality with airships being the main type of transportation in this world.

The main character, Matt Cruse, is a cabin boy who wants to work his way up the ranks to being an airship captain someday. So far I'm about a third of the way through it and it's keeping my attention.

Also, there is a really cool website www.airborn.ca which has cool diagrams of the airship and mock-up old newspapers. Check out the website or even the book!
