I spent most of yesterday curled up reading Nation, by Terry Pratchett. What a wonderful storyteller that man is.
That reminds me; I need to get the newest Discworld novel, Unseen Academicals.
Also, this two-part article on the Bronze Age Collapse, which I found linked at Western Rifle Shooters, was fascinating. It's a slice of history about which we are still learning a lot, and if you don't find the systemic collapse of civilization from the Balkans all the way to the Nile delta fascinating, then you're not much of a history buff, are you?
