A Walk  
For the first time since we moved to our house on the east side of town, I took a walk to the library. It was the first sunny day we had in a long time and I was itching to get out. The walk was twenty minutes one way. It took me through a small neighborhood park and pass quiet neighborhood streets. I arrived at the library just as the high school next door let out. The sun and activity, the noise and energy of the young people around me, was invigerating.

In the library I browsed the New Yorker for awhile. Then I picked up the book I had on-hold and walked back. This was a wonderful departure from my usual routine. I need to get out more.

So, I finished The Historian and I am now starting Chuck Palahniuk's Fugitives and Refugees. I am happy to report that I haven't bought any books so far this year, per my New Year's resolution

What'd you think of the Historian? I got about 3/4s of the way through, and just kinda lost interest....or was distracted by another book, more accurately.

The Historian
Truthfully, it took me two years to finish. I didn't read much in 2007. When I picked it up again I enjoyed the ending.
