About finishing Michael Farquhar's bestseller "Royal Scandals----The Shocking Ture Stories of History's Wickedest, Weirdest Most Wanton Kings, Queens, Tsars, Popes, and Emperors" it's an easy read as well as informative and amusing

What book are you reading ?

I went to the library yesterday and 7 books. I like to read before going to bed . Current book I'm reading is Double Shot by Diane Mott Davdison.

"Champagne" by Don & Petie Kladstrup. It's the history of the wine and the region. Fascinating.

Unfortunately all reading material lately has been work related so nothing interesting. (unless you are into Network/computer security)

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series bound in leather, just working my way thru each book. It is amazing how much of them I have forgotten over the years since I last read them.

"The trick to flying is to miss the ground!" Gotta love that.
