We haven't had a book day at Scribal Terror for a long time, so what are you reading -- and what are you learning from it? Squire Frogworthy wants to know.

I'm reading Lancaster and York: The Wars of the Roses by Alison Weir, and I just learned that Henry IV had a horrible skin disease that people thought was leprosy visited upon him for beheading Archbishop Scrope in a field of barley. Actually, it was probably NOT leprosy, but it's unclear what it really was.

I'm swapping between three books right now:
"Unto the Generations, The Roots of True Americanism" (1968)
"Great Religions of the World" (1971)
"Wanted: Naz's in America" (1977)

I'm reading The Introvert Advantage that the therapist loaned me. may have to get my own copy and make RTO read it. So far, it's been interesting.

I'm reading Winds of Marble Arch by Connie Willis. It's an collection of her short stories and novellas. I've never read them all in one place, which just emphasizes the tremendous scope of her work.

Lord.. seems like a really long time since I read anything more involved than the IKEA catalog currently in my bathroom.. Somebody recommend me something strange and unusual.. something exciting or eerie..(think something like maybe American Psycho.. but not American Psycho because I've read it about four times already) Doesnt have to enrich my mind.. just distract me for awhile and raise my pulse from near dead from boredom.
