1. Do you like to read one book at a time until you’re finished, or multiple things at once? I read one book at atime, but (unfortunately according to my wife) I tend to read from beginning to end in one sitting. I have finished two books and one magazine since Saturday (About 1300 pages) plus everything Terry and Prof. Reynolds have posted.

2. Do you do your browsing at the library, or do you prefer going to retailers such as Barnes and Noble and glomming up free samples of the publishing arts, pretending you’re actually going to buy something? I tend to visit used book stores although the library is attractive for its prices.

3. Which do you prefer--hard cover, paperback, or online? I read all three. I have come to prefer online but that may change once my new reading chair arrives.

And a special bonus question (or else Jim has lost the ability to count):
4. What do you read most often? SciFi, history and theology. It's often hard to tell which is which.

We had a nice visit from our daughter and Son-in-law. They came in on Thursday and left early Sunday morming but a whole week ago. Last week was not a good one. I don't think I got a full night's sleep all week. I arrived at Friday feeling like the proverbial truck had hit me. This week doesn't promise to be much better.

I got my fiddle back from the reapir shop with a shiny new bridge and now I can use all four strings. Too bad I still don't know how to use them.

My bass playing is getting better at an atonishing rate. I think it is because I have tried to pay the guitar so long and already know a lot of songs. Thursday night, we played several nice slow songs and I got to try long sustained bass notes. I think it sounded real good. At least, the rest of the guys didn't tell me to stop.
