Finished several books..."The Perfect Shot II" by Dr. Kevin Robertson (GREAT book), "WOOD...Identifying and Using Hundreds of Woods Worldwide" by Eric Meier (very good reference), "Jack Reacher Blue Moon by Lee Child (it has destroyed Jack Reacher movies for me... Tom Cruise is no Jack Reacher... Jack Reacher is 6'5", 250 lbs... 'nuff said), "African Rifles and Cartridges" by John Taylor (excellent), reread "The Forever War" by Joe Haldeman (science fiction leads science, politics, AND correct prediction of the future... great book), and finishing "Fundamental Principles of the Metaphysic of Morals" by Immanuel Kant...1724-1804 (outstanding read... I recommend it to everyone... 97% won't read it, 3% might read it, 2% of the 3% who might read it won't understand it or will deny it...logic and all that).  I have a number of such tomes to delve into over the next several weeks as well as some light reading.  Retirement has advantages for some things... pursuit of knowledge and refinement of knowledge for its own sake.  I am playing myself in chess again, studying and recreating the games of the masters.  
Jason Sejnoha assisted me with some reloading issues... something I had just not encountered in so long I had forgotten (things slip when you don't do them for over 30 years)...he knew almost immediately what I was encountering and tomorrow I am loading a set of test loads for the .458 Lott... ( I didn't have to read anything... sometimes, that is a good thing)

I've got Immanuel Kant in my library. There are seven big treatises in the book. I really haven't been reading too much during all this pandemonium. I get a lot of magazines in the mail, and I listen to all the guys on the radio ( Glenn Beck, Rush, Hannity, Mark Levin..), and I spend a lot of time amusing myself on the computer trying to amuse you fellas....

I am still plodding through "Arrowsmith" by Sinclair Lewis...
