Today I decided that I was going to read a historical fiction book that I have had waiting for me for quite some time, I Was Amelia Earhart by Jane Mendelsohn. It is really short, and I am pretty much almost done, but it got me thinking about what happened to her and all that, and then the weirdest thing happened. The author of Nefertiti, Michelle Moran, has a blog where she posts articles on historical stuff that is being discovered and researched and such, and today, she posted about the very subject that I was thinking about: Amelia Earhart. So, in spirit of the fact that I am reading a fiction book about her, here is the link to the article on Michelle's blog. I think her blog is interesting anyways, she saves people interested in this sort of stuff from having to search for it themselves. Anyone have any thoughts on Earhart? I have always been interested in what happened to her, but I have stayed away from the non-fiction accounts because they are just theories. Until anything is known for sure, they are not all that much more reliable than a novel. Although, I have to say my favourite theory has always been the alien abduction. I will be looking forward to hearing if they find out anything more if they get enough funding for their expedition in July!
