I checked out:
- Sharpe's Trafalgar, Bernard Cornwell
- Creations of Fire: Chemistry's Lively History from Alchemy to the Atomic Age, Cathy Cobb and Harold Goldwhite
- and The Final Storm, Jeff Shaara, the finishing touch on his World War 2 novels which takes place in the Pacific.
I'm still reading Radiation in Modern Life, which is proving to be an eye-opener, though I had to return The Age of Faith and The Cat Who Walks through Walls because of a library computer error. I'll pick Age of Faith back up next week: the library's computer system has a problem with my account in which it fails to register which books I have checked in and out. I like to think I've checked out so many books at the library in my life that I've overwhelmed the system. I also have Jared Diamond's The Third Chimpanzee which I bought a week or so ago. I'm anticipating making a couple of purchases next week (a couple of new Star Trek novels, and my Bastille Day read).
