On the history side, I have Long, Obstinate and Bloody; the Battle of Guilford Courthouse by Babits and Howard on the nightstand as well, and am a ways into it.
Actually, some day I should post a picture of my nightstand. It would make people laugh.
Random thoughts on my hobbies (miniatures gaming, hiking, geocaching), family, literature, music and whatever else occurs to me. My Wife graciously suggested a blog name of Eric's Dork-o-rama, but that sounded less dignified somehow...true though it may be.
