I Read a Book!

I am proud to announce that I finished a book yesterday! I start a lot of books - right now I'm working on The Conservative Soul, The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Siege, and if I can find where I left it, Democracy in America. I'm also still thumbing my way through Jefferson and Madison on Separation of Church and State, which is a book those with an interest in the First Amendment should definitely read.

I do read, not as often as I should, but I do read. I would say that one of my favorite authors is David L. Robbins. He has a way of writing that draws you in, almost without you realizing it. The book I finished yesterday is Scorched Earth. It took me a bit to get into this one, it didn't grab me as quickly as some of his other novels, like Last Citadel or (in my opinion, his best) The War of the Rats. However, after about 100 pages, it picked up the pace, and turned out to be one of the better books I've read in the past year. I won't ruin the story for you outside the summary linked above, but suffice it to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

Today, I'm taking the kids to the movies, and when I get back, maybe I'll put some time in on one of these remaining books. As much as I like starting things, it's a nice feeling when you've finished something, as well.

Kudos on the reading. I don't do much reading outside of work, except for some light reading before bed. After a day starring at a computer screen, my eyes need a rest. Actually, I should probably have them checked - my last exam was during law school.

We will be in The Woodlands sometime Sunday afternoon to clean out our apartment, check the mail, et cetera. Maybe we can share a meal. Let me know your plans for the day and I will check with the Wife.
