BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS

feb 07 005

The whole widget thing is just not workin’ for me.  It takes me way too long to get the code right and there’s just too much to do to spend all that time tinkering.  I’ve kept a log of all the books I’ve read for the last 20 years or so.   As I added the last two books this past week it occurred to me that I could just make a page and keep the list there…here. It’s an eclectic list.  Sometimes when the news is just too distressing and I just want to stick my head in the sand I’ll read something totally frivolous.  And because wisdom comes from many sources…sometime there are words of wisdom in the frivolity.

So here’s my list.  Maybe with comments and links…maybe not. Maybe I’ll work out some kind of system.  As my Mom would say…”we shall see”.
