It's been a fairly unusual weekend, at least weather-wise. We got snow on Friday, but yesterday it had started melting, but since we had received about 5", we now have just a bunch of slush. Today looks to be about the same as yesterday, mid-40s and snow melt.
I've always enjoyed reading, and I always have a book that I'm getting through. With the recent election of The One, I decided to finally pick up Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. So far it is a very enjoyable, and very relevant, read.
TOTD: What are you reading now? If nothing, are there any books you've been interested in, but never got around to reading?

Chilly morning here but the snow is incrementally melting off.
I'm reading a book about the Battle Of Leyte Gulf during WWII.

Chilly and sunny here. Seafood lasagne for Sunday dinner this noon.
TOTD: I've started the second volume of "The Emergence of Lincoln", by Allan Nevins (1956). It covers the period 1859-1861."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

Begrudgingly getting back to reading notes from my microbiology course. I've been slacking on this for a week now."Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! "

It's gloomy here today. I was going to clean my fridge but I think I'll go shopping instead.
TOTD: I just started Anne Easter Smith's new book. It does involve a Tudor (ugh) but there are enough Plantagenets to make it worth my while.:)Loyalty Binds Me- Motto of Richard III

TOTD: Just finished, laugh out loud, Nuclear Jellyfish by Tim Dorsey! They should make movies out of his books!
This is not heavy reading! :D

Overcast but nice temperature wise.
TOTD: Currently reading "Christian Spirituallity" edited by John R. Tyson.“Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always
perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”
G. K. Chesterton
