Another Bookstore Surprise

Look what I found on the remainder rack at Borders. I didn't know Paul Jaskunas very well in high school, but it still comes as something of a surprise that Someone I Know has published a novel. I didn't buy it, since it didn't look like the sort of thing I usually go for, but maybe I'll have to go back and satisify my curiousity.

Not that I've gotten around to reading Richard Curtis's book, yet, or any of the other books in my to-be-read stack. Why does school have to put such a damper on reading?

I did get to read The Plot Against America, in preparation for an upcoming talk here at Purdue. Charles Lindbergh was a bad, bad man.
