    Reds fan since before then, and a Tom Browning fan. I was glued to the radio September 16, 1988. One of those moments I'll always remember where I was. I'll definitely have to get the book.

    The Night Circus was fantastic. Probably the second best book I've read in the past year, after The Historian. My own writing tends to be spare, but I love reading rich, intricate fiction.

    Change of pace next: Joe Hillls N0S4A2.

    Game of Thrones. I love the TV show and I'm loving the book more.

    I am about 200 pages into "The Last Lion: Winston Churchill: Defender of the Realm" by William Manchester and Paul Reid. Years ago I read Manchester's first two volumes on Churchill.

    I'll have to get Morgan's book. I don't think I knew he had one out there.

    Book three of the Game Of Thrones series--Storm of Swords. I can't stop reading *it*, but the new Dan Brown book is sitting here tempting me too....
