Last night I finished Volume 2 of Shelby Foote's Civil War: A Narrative. This morning I started with Volume 3. I've been talking about taking a break from the war long enough to read something a little more lighter - but after taking down 2,000 pages, I'm eager to put away the last 1,000. I just know I'll have a huge sense of accomplishment once I've finally done it. This is a great, great series... It's really required reading for anyone interested in American History.


Waiting on my shelf...

Wow, that's one of the corniest looking SciFi covers I've ever seen.

Been wanting to quit my job for a year or two... but the right thing hasn't come up, yet. I desperately need a new job, though.

I'll buy the extra DLC, but no way I'm buying this game twice for an extra mini-mission.

I hadn't had high hopes for Washington's Secret War, since I picked it up in a bargain bin - now I'm excited to read it. Gotta agree with your take on Cornelius Ryan - he's sort of like the Shelby Foote of WW2. I bought Longest Yard and Bridge Too Far years ago, dunno why I read one and not the other. May have burned myself out after reading Rommel and Patton's books.

I can probably hook you up with SOTE, KOTOR I & II, and Republic Commando.

I don't have that one, but if you decide to toss that gift card out... we can be best friends.  :-*

Finished Palahnuik's Diary and it sucked.
Finished Horwitz's Confederates in the Attic and it was pretty good.

Now I'm back to Shelby Foote's Civil War Narrative. I'm into Volume 2 - 150 or so pages down, another 800 to go!

- Will Urban Meyer hang a hundred on Lane Kiffin?[/b]
60 point game for Florida. Alabama doesn't tend to run the score up, but could potentially put up 40.

- Will Bob Stoops win his first BCS bowl game in forever?
No. Choke artist.

- Will Jim Tressel win his first BCS bowl game in forever?
No. Choke artist.

- How many times will Lane Kiffin violate NCAA rules?
Starting now? The guy is hilarious - makes me love the SEC even more.

- Will Charlie Weis finally be fired?
Not until season's end. He's a placeholder for Urban.


National Championship prediction:

I'll guess Florida 28, Oklahoma 14.

Polystone. Terrible idea - should have used plastic.

I kind of like it but the nose is too bulbous to me... I'll just hold onto my Sith Anakin.
