The Bible. Not a Jesus juke, but after reading it over the course of two years, it has become a habit.

This was an excellent read. Enjoyed every single page.

"Inspired by the true blue-skinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s, The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's belief that books can carry us anywhere—even back home."

Have a book I've placed on hold at our Library, A Practical Guide to Culture : Helping the Next Generation Navigate Today's World / John Stonestreet & Brett Kunkle.

Looking forward to it.

Fantastic. Keep posting about your pup’s progress (with pics).

Well, I guess I have to wait one more day. The mail is running behind...because ‘rona.

It should be quite the in-depth read. It is my understanding that Madison kept a daily journal of all of the proceedings, to include discussion and debate over articles, both included and rejected. I expect it to be an insightful look at the intentions and thoughts of the framers.

More to follow when I actually have it in hand.
