Book: The Martian
Right now in The Martian, Mark Watney is drilling holes. Not the most interesting part of the book, but it's cool seeing what he's doing to his rover. Of course, he broke his communications with the drill, but he still plans on getting to the ship and getting into orbit to leave. The other thing he is doing, is counting his food. If he wants to live a 3000 kilometer drive he's going to need food. It's going to take him over 100 days, because he has to wait for his battery to recharge, and sit there for almost half a day. I can't say it's not boring right now, but I don't want to ditch the book just because it's at another boring part, I heard the book gets really good.
