    Re: So, whatcha reading?

    "Into the Country" by John McPhee
    "Going to Extremes" by Joe McGinniss

    Both are very good Alaskan travel books from the late 70s and were used by Brand & Falsey as the basis for the show "Northern Exposure".

    "The Guns of August" by Barbara Tuchman about the outbreak of WWI.
    "I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Just finished reading "Biggest Brother". It's a biography of Major Dick Winters from The Band of Brothers of 506 PIR during WWII. Excellent read especially if you like the mini series,Band of Brothers.

    Better, IMO, than David Copperfield.

    Hard Times is the balls, though.

    The Jeff Daniel's character in "The Squid and the Whale", who is a writer and literary snob, tells his son that A Tale of Two Cities is "lesser-Dickens" and not to waste time w/ it. Somehow, it has fallen through the cracks of my reading. I've seen the movie w/ Ronald Colman and know the story is compelling. Should I waste my time? It's a far, far better thing...

    One of my two favorite writers ever. I just read Bleak House again a couple of weeks ago.

    I couldn't get through that about a year ago, it sits aside with about 250 pages to go, and I too love Dickens.
