Thanks again to all of my readers. I recently put up a list of the next stack of books I plan on getting through, so you see that I want to continue to be broad, but focus on the fun reading, the stuff that sweeps you away and doesn’t set you down until the last page is turned. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment at the end of this post or send me an email at the address listed on the top right of this page.

I look forward to sharing many more hundreds of posts with you all!
