A few more months and I will be finished with the Bible. I was going to read the second volume of Sherlock Holmes this year, but I think the Bible will do. It was good enough for Paul and Silas anyway.

Since you haven't finished yet, I'll try not to spoil the ending for you.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I love his writing. I'm re-reading "Goodbye", and have "Hardscrabble" next in the stack. Haven't read The Last Running" but it looks like a good read as well.
