Current Reading List

FLG's current reading list has been stale for several years.   He just culled the books he actually made it through over the years.

Currently, actually currently not just on his current reading list, he is reading Banks and Politics in America from the Revolution to the Civil War, which has been trying to find a copy of for a while.  Some damned professor at Georgetown had basically checked the library's copy out indefinitely and FLG was too lazy to do the interlibrary loan.  But he was excited to have finally found a copy just yesterday.

"Imprisoned in his ignorance" What a great turn of phrase.
