A Book A Week?

Scott Smith of Minnesota is reading one book a week this year. In this his 42nd week, he's tackling Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. Yes, I have this book, gathering dust on my bookshelf. Mr. Smith is going to try to read it in a week. Hats off!

I'll be watching how he does at the end of the year. So far, I've only read six books this year. Ugh. Let's see if I can rally in these last few months.

Baseball Predictions

I'm still reeling from the Yankees early exit! In the ALCS, I like the Detroit Tigers over the Oakland A's, but in truth, I could root for either team.

In the NLCS, I like the New York Mets over the St. Louis Cardinals. As I write this, Detroit is up 3 to 0 in Game 1.
