    Finished that one right before Christmas. Interesting read.

    My son got me the Centennial Edition of Casino Royale for Christmas and I burned through it in about a day. I've wanted to read the original Ian Fleming texts for years, as I'm a big fan of the films. This one got me started.

    I'm a lot like you.

    Am reading Defend the Realm (851 pages before appendices)

    I spend quite a bit of time reviewing other documents and reports. Last week I proofread a 45-page report on the "American Patriot Movement." I get a lot of these types of requests...

    The World's Assault Rifles, my 1228 page Christmas present. It's awesome.

    I'm also reading a 1957 book called Below the Salt which may be about time travel, not exactly sure yet even 60 pages into it.

    Ditto got the same book...950 pages...I'm at 545...pretty good read...

    They fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till he knew that the Most High God rules in the kingdom of men, and appoints over it whomever He chooses.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Right now, couple of a large stack of VN-era accounts (at moment A-23 and very early SF presence in IV Corps down by Tan Phu by Leigh Wade, time from when Nick Rowe was captured). Just finished 12th Imam, novel I find anti-climactic given some other knowledge I have. Finally, the ever-present bedside Physics & Philosophy by Heisenberg - and boning up for an FCC exam next month... typical winter in Das Nortland.

    Was just thinking more about this and I realized I am actually reading more than one book at a time. Been reading Broke and just started The Overton Window by Beck (also read a couple chapters of The Christmas Sweater).

    And I've been reading some of the Anti-Federalist Papers.

    If it seems to good to be true, it's best to shoot it, just in case.
