I'm generally not that way. If I start a serious reading session, I am likely to put aside all other business until I finish the book, sometimes such activities as eating and sleeping.

I've got the last R.A. Salvatore book to read but don't have any time to enjoy it right now.

Jon.

I'm Currently Reading All Over But The Shoutin' by Rick Bragg. It's a great book. Next on my list are: Bella Tuscany and Under The Tuscan Sun.

I've just finished Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon (get the abridged version if you value any social life). It's not a particularly easy read (I find narrative written 200 years ago doesn't always travel well). Still, it's a worthy piece of work and is as relavent and as interesting today as when it was written.

For my next read, it's going to be anything not written by Tom Clancy (my wife's favourite, but I can't abide him ).

I read All Over But The Shoutin', I met Rick Bragg once before I knew anything about his books. It IS a great book.


Last book I read was War without hate by John Bierman & Colin Smith which I found after reading An Army at Dawn by Rick Atkinson... Military history is my alternative to sleeping pills; about 95% effective.

As long as I'm on the subject, I have to recommend The Cat from Hue by Jack Laurence... the best book I've ever read.

Fewer physiological side effects too, though they can be habit-forming in susceptible individuals.

I've finished it now. I'm skipping over Bella Tuscany and Under The Tuscan Sun with high hopes for Ava's Man and Somebody Told Me. He is a wonderful Author/Writer/Story-Teller.
