Ah, the non-fiction meme. I read deeply in certain subjects, more lightly in others. For the past six months or so I have been heavily engaged in reading about the American War of Independance for a project I'm working on in my spare time. When there is more to say about it, rest assured I'll let you know.

I also read works of natural and social history. I've just gotten into "A Bound Man" by Shelby Steele, prompted by my posts on race and memory last week.

As to whether I would choose to review what I've read, well as a rule I haven't, though here I am commenting on a post which is nearly identical to a music review I posted at Amazon so who is to say I wouldn't?

Of one thing I am certain. This blog is not something I wish to be compensated for financially. Cleaner that way, what with the various images I have springled through here. I can claim ownership of the text, but not all of the pictures, so no harm, no foul as far as that is concerned.
