A Gripe Perhaps About E-Books?

For the last several weeks, I have been reading Aristotle’s The Metaphysics on my Kindle.  Even though there were a couple of freebies available on Amazon for this particular title, I decided to go ahead and download the Penguin Classics version of this work so I could get a decent introduction and perhaps some great insights […]

An Interesting Week of Reading

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  My wife and I are looking forward to watching the game today with some friends.  We’re not overly excited about the two teams that are in the big game, and we’re definitely really looking forward to Madonna at half-time, but we’ll enjoy the game nonetheless with some very good friends!

Now Reading James Bradley’s Flags of Our Fathers

On Monday evening, I completed my reading of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon.  I’ll be posting in the next day or so my thoughts on it.  As I was at the half-way point of The Mists of Avalon, I thought I would go ahead and read yet another unread book on my bookcase […]
