Book Reading
I'm not a big book reader. Don't get me wrong, I read all day--blogs, magazine and newspaper articles, etc.--but I'm not real patient with books. If you want to tell me a story, do it with pictures (preferably with some gratuitous nudity).

Still, the other day someone linked to this obituary written by Hunter S. Thompson of Richard Nixon and I laughed so much during it that I thought I'd better follow that up by reading this: Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail. The book follows the 1972 Presidential race and it is interesting in that you could change the names of the candidates, and it probably wouldn't be much different than the 2004 campaign. Politics is still politics.
