Thanks to everyone who chimed in with Droid apps and ideas! I think I’m pretty well set for connectivity and entertainment on the Great Train Ride West.
The NPR Too-100 Science Fiction, Fantasy Poll is still on-going. Go on over and vote! for your Ten Most Favorite SF/F books/series, ever. Yes, The Liaden Universe® is a contender.
At Eagles Over the Kennebec there’s a poll and essay test ongoing. The poll is open to “everyone,” but apparently LiveJournal means something different when it says “everyone” than I do. In any case, if you can’t see the radio buttons, do feel free to leave a comment about your favorite title and why it’s your favorite.
