MS IT Management

I started my degree program and recreational reading has slowed down. I am working my way through Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier. And David Hewson's The Blue Demon. I also started a book by Paul Christopher, he writes historical fiction about the Templar's.

I often start and bounce from book to book. Sometimes juggling 3 or 4 books. I'm wondering how many people do this type of juggling as well.

It doesnt seem like I slowed down does it? But a few pages here and there is slowing down for me.

North Little Rock, AR

So here I am in Arkansas. If you've ever been here then you know my state of mind. I'm reading The Blue Demon by David Hewson. Super Bowl Sunday and here I am. The book so far is slow to get into however I believe I'm suffering from Stieg Larsson hangover. The Blue Demon seems typically well written and I am sure I will love this chase through Rome.

The Burning Land

Before I started the Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest I read The Burning Land by Bernard Cornwell. True historical fiction about Britian at the time of Alfred the Great. The Danes and Saxons are constantly at war. Yet constantly seeking partnerships to leverage and grow their power.

This is the 5th in a series, but I didnt realize that at the time I grabbed it.  A quick read and interesting for those who truly like history.
