Bought at a used book sale. Excellent condition.

I read this years ago in college. It was required reading for all freshmen the year I had a mentee in the honors program, so I read it both for enjoyment and so I could discuss it.

I found it to be an incredible read, but quite difficult to describe. I like the "endlessly fascinating" phrase on the back cover, actually. I've always been interested in different time and space possibilities, so my favorite parts were all the different worlds and places and how things in them fit. I remember my freshman mentee at the time said that was his least favorite part, though- there's something interesting in this book for everyone!

Sending out as a Ray it Forward.

Released for Never Judge a Book by its Cover Challenge- week 37(clock)

What's Ray it Forward? It's like an informal bookray. When you receive the book, read it within a few months then ray it forward to someone else who promises to do likewise. There's no list of participants to keep track of and everyone chooses his or her shipping preferences. It's a nice way to get a book moving within our community.

This is an interesting, if strange, little book. It is entertaining and -- like the man himself -- mind-expanding. A pleasant diverson. Now on it's continued journey.

Interesting book, all about time in ways you might never suspect. I'm posting it in the Bookray forum in hopes of raying it forward soon.

Finally on its way to Moonwoolf

Journal Entry 10 by Moonwoolf from Azambuja, Lisboa (distrito) Portugal on Wednesday, January 16, 2008
It has arrived today!!! I'm very happy to receive this book, and i will start to read at once. :)
Thanks for sharing.

04-03-2008 = It is a very interesting book; but it is dificult for me to think that it could exist someone like me in another place, even if it is different in hers life... It is kind of strange think that i'm not special, cause i could not be unique. It's an interesting thought but didn't convince me that this is a truth possibility. If we knew that the world would end in exactly that moment, i guess caos is what would happen. Humans would ruin there self, before the time ends. :)
Thanks for sharing and sending.
