I am now finishing up ripleys game by patricia Highsmith. The storyline is good, but I find it hard to connect with the characters. Both Tom, and Jonathan are bad men, and I find myself not caring what happens to either.
I also have started a book edited by Henry Commanger, called The Spirit of Seventy-Six. I recieved this as a christmas present, and am commited to finishing it by July. Which is harder than it sounds, the book is a big 1300 pages of text. So far it is dry in some places but loaded with great information. I already have 12 pages of notes, and I have only read 150 pages.
