    Where to start? I read M’Lady Sith’s post on her “Book List Challenge,” which lead to Nicole’s post “a book list!,” which led to your post “Book Quiz,” which is closed for comments.

    So I came here.

    Your “I like” list is a great way for people to get to know about you quickly. Dune, Firefly, and many others would be my likes, as well. What really got be intrigued, though, was “Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” Beyond it begin an inspiration for Asimov’s “Foundation” trilogy, it features seminally in the sequel to my forthcoming non-fiction book. In the sequel, I make a rational and coherent argument as to the actual causal mechanism for the decline and fall, and (disturbingly) demonstrate how the same process is at work in present-day western civilization.

    Any change I could entice you to consider reading the book–written for everyday readers– prior to its release, to see how it stacks up against your #’s 1, 5, 6, and 25 in your “Book Quiz” post? It’s been getting very strong test reader reviews, including from a professor of English, and by all accounts is a gripping read: http://navigator1965.wordpress.com/2014/03/31/how-to-write-the-book-that-malcolm-gladwell-wished-he-had-written/ (see test reader feedback at end of the post).

    Thank you for commenting, and thanks for the book offer. I’m not sure though. I am sort of interested in the subject matter but it normally takes me a long time to get through a book, not because I’m a slow reader, especially, but because I have so many other things filling up my time (like sewing and spending too much time on the Internet :-) ) and I don’t like to read more than two books at a time so it would be a while before I get around to it. I don’t want to sound like I’m making excuses though.

    Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope you will become a regular.

    Wow. I just realized I haven’t updated this page in a long time.
