A page here and a page there, and after a while a book (or two) gets read.

So, at various times yesterday I finished reading two books:

First was an early Christopher Moore book, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove: a slight radiation leak from a nuclear power plant awakens a sea monster who comes ashore at Pine Grove and precipitates havoc. Fun read.

Then, Osprey Command #29: Ulysses S. Grant, an overview of primarily his military career, with a bit here and there of the rest of his life. It also goes into the history and background of several of his primary opponents. Pretty good read.

Hopefully, I'll get a lot of reading done in the next few days.
