    Hahah, yes I'd agree! Profits always beat windfalls! You said you were part of the military?

    Yes ... I was in the Army...serving mostly in Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol Units ( L.R.R.P ) or Long Range Surveillance Detachment Units
    ( L.R.S.D )
    Which basically means that one is both Airborne and Ranger qualified and conducts patrols both of the intelligence and combat kind , deep behind enemy lines.
    ( It is not as fun or glamorous as it sounds...LOL )

    I am reading about history in ancient Egypt and very interested in the history and how they use to live in those times..Normally I would just read 1-2 books at a time,during the day.But since the book I am reading is so detailed I need my concentration and focus to finish each chapter.I use to read the history facts but that only had a few things about ancient Egypt,Wiki on google is also handy. I really don't like romantic books because it gets out of the point. I like reading its simple like that :p

    I'm falling way behind my usual pace, ever since we acquired a new TV and learned of streaming mystery and detective series.
    I'm currently alternating between two books from the top of a pile of about half a dozen books (fiction, politics, history).
    Specifically, I'm half-way through The Kindness of Strangers by Salka Viertel -- a memoir of a long life in acting.

    I have not really given myself a monthly reading goal but I have finished about 6 books in the past few weeks. I am a TEFL teacher most recently posted in Vietnam and the hours I kept allowed me the time to read a alot. My mother had a stroke so I came back to the US and have been afforded a bit of time to read while she recuperates. I say all of that because I know my situation may be a bit unique. Work hours and children can reak havoc on available hours for reading.
