Happy second half of the year!
So far, I’m keeping on track with my 100 book challenge- fifty books in the first half of the year, plus I finished Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance last night, and am close to finishing up The Mongoliad, Book 2.
I don’t know what changed between now and the last time I read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, but I just don’t agree as wholeheartedly with it now as I did then. I guess that’s what education does for you- changes your viewpoints on things. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
