    I do love Jack London.

    I've been reading several small publications about starting farmer's markets -- largely how to do the foundational market research (for both produce that the people in the location want as well as what attracts those sorts of vendors), and overall how to plan for a market effectively. Interesting process, that.

    I've also finally gotten ahold of Hunger Games, and it's a decent read.

    Plato's "Republic", Machiaveli's "The Prince", Ludwig von Mises' "Socialism" are all on my Kindle, just re-read the 1984 edition of "Galloway's Book on Running" in paperback. I have the 2nd edition on order.....

    i just finished "a dance with dragons." not sure how i'm going to be able to wait until "the winds of winter" and "a dream of spring" come out. at least season 3 of the show starts on sunday.

    i'll probably get back in to reading some more daniel quinn now and i have my eye on "god, no" by penn jillette, as well.

    I just finished A Storm of Swords. I haven't decided if I'm going to jump into A Feast For Crows right now or hold off. I'm starting to find these a little frustrating. It's like nothing good ever happens to the good characters. I have a biography of Ben Franklin that I keep skipping, so I think I'm going to read that next.

    I am reading The Gabriel Method by Jon Gabriel. My hobby is reading diet books to see what ultimate truth they contain. Some contain none, others have nuggets of pure gold.

    a feast for crows and a dance with dragons are a change of pace. new characters are introduced. storylines expand. some new geography is covered. some good things happen. some bad things happen. overall, they move a lot slower than a storm of swords. remember, "the winds of winter" will be roughly another year until it is released. and from what i've read, "a dream of spring" will be at least 3-4 years after that. maybe slow it down and pace yourself. i'm curious to see how hbo does with the 3rd season and where they choose to end it. i've heard that the season will end with the wedding, and mostly everything afterwards will go in to season 4. i'm also not sure how hbo will do with the 4th and 5th books. too many new characters are introduced and there is too much going on, without a lot of actual action, in those 2 books to make super TV friendly. they really can't shorten anything up though, or the tv show will overtake the pace in which the books are being written. and a 1-2 year hiatus would be unthinkable for hbo.
