    Just finished: "The Hunger Games Trilogy," by Suzanne Collins. A very easy read. All three books taking only two days to read.

    1. "The Works of Aristotle"

    I'd dreaded this one (and I'm struggling a bit to stay with it), especially after "The Republic," but many reviews of "Summa Theologica," by Thomas Aquinas, said I needed to finish the Aristotle, first.

    2. "Toll the Hounds," by Steven Erikson
    3. "Kushiel's Chosen," by Jacqueline Carey

    The Erikson is the eighth in a fantasy series, the Carey is a sequel. Both were listed in NPR's list of the best Fantasy/Science Fiction novels of all time.

    The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.

        Some authors are active on Facebook and it can provide you some opportunity for interaction.

        Dennis Lehane had a great post the day of the Marathon Bombs. As someone closely associated (for me, at least) with Boston, it was good to read his perspective.
