The journals of William Clark and Meriwether Lewis as they explored the country that Mr. Jefferson bought from Napoleon. It's the 200th anniversary of their trip you know.

Not by choice, but I'm reading Business, Government, and Society, A Managerial Perspective (10th Ed).

I'd rather be reading Radical Brewing... :(

I finished Girls in Trouble by Caroline Leavitt about a week ago and it was so good I didn't want to start anything else right away so I caught up on magazines. I went to the library last night and grabbed and arm load. I'll start What Looks Like Crazy by Pearl Cleager today.

Ahhhh, the Corps of Discovery, huh? It was an amazing and inspiring journey. I grew up not far from the grave of Sergeant Floyd (the only death along this epic journey) and the explorers were infused in the local culture... but I never truly appreciated what they did until I watched the Ken Burns documentary on PBS last year.... it was beautifully filmed and put the scope of the journey into perspective. It was narrated by Hal Holbrook and included exerpts from the journals. I would recommend the video/DVD to anyone and think it should be required viewing in schools.

i like to read a bunch of books at once depending on what seems interesting at the moment.
Me too. I have books in almost every room of the house and two in the car. Just incase I don't feel like reading the one in my hand. I don't think I've ever just read one book at a time. Unless, I sit down and read one cover to cover. :D

We just checked out a diary of Lewis and Clark. I haven't started reading
it yet though. I think I'll take it on vacation with us.

Z, another excellent telling of this story is by Stephen Ambrose, entitled Undaunted Courage. I'm not familiar with the Ken Burns film, but I'm a fan of his other work (Civil War, Jazz) - thanks for the tip.
