Happy Fourth of July!

I've been wanting to get something up about summer reading for a couple of days now. I'm having problems figuring out how to copy/paste without a mouse.

I have just been doing a re-read of Margaret Mitchell's Gone With The Wind. There's so much more to the book than there was in the movie. Even so, they did follow the book pretty well; they just had to leave out some things. Otherwise, it would have been 6-8 hours long, instead of 3-4. Having not read it in quite a while, I was a little taken aback at how politically correct a lot of it is.

Still, I've enjoyed reading about Rhett and Scarlett sparring with each other.

Until I can get home and list some of the books I've seen touted recently in Parade and the local paper for summer reading, feel free to add your own suggestions. Old favourites are welcome suggestions, too.

June 6th - D Day

Take a few minutes today and remember the sacrifices our armed forces made on this day 68 years ago.

I'm doing a copy/paste from an entry I put up in 2006. I hope the links still work. I'll be putting up another entry later this week.
