Entering The Home Stretch

As I wake up to another beautiful late Spring Sunday morning here in Northern Virginia, I take a look at my reading accomplishments in April and I realize that it’s not overly all that exciting, and I really didn’t get too much accomplished.  That’s okay though, as I realize we’re entering the home stretch with […]

My New Ongoing Reading Endeavor

As I mentioned last week in my post detailing my thoughts on Agatha Christie’s Murder is Easy, I visited the official information website for Agatha Christie and read up, not only on her, but perused all the books/short stories she wrote during her lifetime. Needless to say, I was given a pretty good shock to […]

A Brief Look At 2012

With 2011 quickly coming to an end, I thought I would take some time and take a brief look at some reading that I aim to do in 2012.  With 2011 being a pretty structured reading year, I’m looking at 2012 being not as structured. While I’m confident that I’ll be reading my fair share […]
