    Lately, I've been on a non-fiction spree.

    Now I'm reading The Blooding by Joseph Wambaugh. It tells the story of the discovery of genetic fingerprinting by scientist Alec Jeffrey. It's well-written and there's never a dull moment in the book.

    It is actually. There are some incredible stories in it. The author is not only great at research but the topics are very accessible.

    I read it a while back.

    There was some food for thought.

    But Hitchen is so full of himself. That it's hard to take him seriously.

    Don't buy a lot of books anymore , but bought 4 the other week cause Computer was down. Idea was to read them over a period of time. Read 3 the first day and the 4th the next day.

    Science Fiction. 3 were books on Bolo's and the 4th was series book by Weber.

    When I got sick I quit reading, used to read a couple books a week, Couldn't focus after I got sick. Now that I am doing better I can focus again so after 13 years I can read again.

    I know what you mean. I went through a period where I couldn't read. It does take a lot of focus. Still does...
