New Purchase: A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

I’ve always wanted to read this series of books (maybe there are half a dozen – I’m not sure) ever since watching Carl Sagan describe them – and how they helped inspire him – during an episode of his landmark Cosmos series on PBS in the early 80s.  Plus the protagonist and I have the same initials. 🙂 I bought the first book from Barnes & Noble via my e-reader.  It’s only 142 pages (e-reader pages) long, so I may just knock that out today or today and tomorrow.  I read the first 20 pages already and it is quite good – and easy reading too! I deserve a break after my other two recent reads, which totaled more than 2,000 pages together.

(This was the least risque image I could find for this book cover…)
