Just thought i'd give an update. No MTV in this house.

Recently finished reading Greg Mortenson's second book "Stones into Schools". A lost climber turned school builder in Afghanistan. There current plan includes building womens schools deep into Taliban country.

Next up was "Blood and Thunder" by Hampton Side. A great novel about Kit Carson, Americas "Manifest Destiny", the Dine and the battle for the American West.

Currently, i'm reading "Undaunted Courage" by Stephene E. Ambrose. A tale of Lewis and Clark and the opening of the west. I'm forcing myself to finish this book, as next up is:

"Finders Keepers" by Craig Childs. A tale of archaeological plunder and obsession. I had to put this book down the other day as nothing would have gotten done after lunch. Craig sent my Dad, Brother and myself each a signed copy of this book. Yeah i'm excited.
