What I’m Reading

Flex Your Head

My study is my man cave. I have a flag that flew over the capital and another that flew atop my armored personnel carrier on three continents as well as during Desert Storm.

I read once that Thomas Jefferson had more than 10,000 books in his personal library which became the foundation of the Library of Congress upon his death.

I know that I will never be able to read anywhere close to that number of books, I have set a goal for myself to read 1,000 books before I die. I am well on my way to that goal as I now have about 400 books in my personal library and have read all but a few.

I typically order books in bulk, 10 to 20 at a time, so that I have a variety to choose from on my bookshelf. I have a bookshelf in my bedroom which contains the books I’m currently reading and my library contains the rest.
