Thanks! I'll check it out!

I have a love/hate relationship with biographies and autobiographies: As I'm reading an autobiography, I feel like I'm only being told the nice parts -- or at least the parts that the author wants me to know. When I'm reading a biography, I feel like I'm only being told the sensational parts, the somewhat icky stuff (that may or may not be true), in order to sell the book because everyone loves dirt.

Yet I read both... for better or for worse, I guess.

Hubby hijacked the book I want to read - Sid Marty's Switchbacks so I'm a little lost right now. Do I read yet another Orson Scott Card book? I kind of feel I need a different voice in my head before I do that. Otherwise it's like too much sugar or something.

To make things worse, I have a cold. Hubby has a cold. I'm tired of sniffling and listening to him sniffling.

Just started Bleak House. I like Dickens a lot more as an adult reader than when we were forced to read him in high school.

The Southeastern Indians
by Charles Hudson

Comprehensive: history, society/cultures, religion, survival skills, locations of different tribes. I am glued to it, for now.

Galileo's Daughter, by Dava Sobel. It's just not nearly as engaging as her wonderful Longitude. But I'm interested enough in the subject matter to push through.
