  1. Interesting today on C-Span with Fr. Neuhaus - in a reply to someone's question about his book collection - said that at his house he has room for 6,000 - 7,000 volumes and he has to keep throwing books away to make room for new ones!

  2. I find it interesting that nobody will admit to ever having read a book that wasn't either academic or religious.

    I'll be the first. Someone out there is buying mysteries. Oh yeah, it was me. For shame!!

  3. I love a mystery, The two books I have really enjoyed as of late, Wm Biersach's "The Endless Knot" and "The Darkness Did Not"
