August Books

Nice to see the titles I'd impulsively ordered over the last four months waiting for me at home. They filled up the better part of a duffel bag. Sadly, I've forgotten why many of them stirred me to action, but, hopefully, that's something to be rediscovered. 

Quizzically, a long period of vacation did not spur me to read more than usual. I spent my time visiting friends and family, weeding my herb garden and helping the Gs get ready for school.

Straight dope science-based advice from a military doctor and my first strength coach (via the Washington Post). I e-mailed Marty to ask what he thought about my current regimen of bodyweight exercises. He responded, as always, promptly and succinctly: "Need weights."

From the local bookstore. Beautiful book about Britain and the end of an era. Enjoyed nearly every word.

Good month. Exactly the kind of balance I'm looking for. Kapuscinski is the discovery of the year so far, and I thank Pat for that.
