August 20, 2014: Long, New Book

On the drive into the office this morning I finished reading “Founding Brothers” by Joseph Ellis and started reading “History of the World, Updates” by J. M. Roberts.  This is one of those super long books that has been sitting in my Audible queue since easily six years ago.  The book is fifty five hours in length so this one is going to take me a while to work through.  It was a pretty slow start.

Tomorrow is Dominica’s birthday.  We don’t have anything special planned yet.  I will probably get some cake.  Her birthday present is the new HP laptop that we ordered a week ago.  Much newer and smaller than the one that she is using now.  And with a touch screen.  Should be far superior for use while sitting on the chaise lounge.  Do not know when that will arrive, though.
