Reading

I'm reading again. And I really enjoy it. I'm not reading as much as I used to, or as much as I would like. But I'm reading more now than I did last year, which is a positive direction and I hope to keep it up. A few months ago, I read Watership Down on my wife's recommendation -- it's her favorite book. I quite enjoyed it, too. Then, a few weeks ago, I read The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men... on my father's recommendation. Dad's in the Coast Guard and agrees that the book is rather faithful to real-world conditions of the storm systems it describes. Of course, I saw the movie a while ago, so I knew the story. The book was really good, too.

Today, I'm starting A History of Appalachia, a book that no one's recommended to me. I saw the title of it when I was signing up to the History Book Club and it looked interesting. It showed up at the house Friday and I've thumbed through it a couple of times. I started reading it earlier this afternoon while waiting for compiles to finish. It looks like it's going to be pretty interesting.
