Ultra Superior by Phillip Gary Smith. A short book about the authors participation in the Superior 50 mile trail race. This was a dude, I got not too much out of it (I got it in hopes of some nuggets as I will be doing my first 50 mile trail race in August).
Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.
"We named the dog 'Chewbacca'!"
The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
Started reading the Guardians of the Galaxy comic, the '08 version. Really liking the story so far and learning about these characters since the movie will be out soon enough!
You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!
Dave Barry, retired humor newspaper columnist, has a new book, You Can Date Boys When You're Forty. It had several LOL-worthy parts, then it took a semi-serious turn in tone towards the end (and this was a good thing). Always love his grammar and Q&A sections. And it really has little to do with his teenage daughter's dating interests, as he mentions in the introduction (his alternate book titles were a good laugh).
"May the 4th be with you?" "Why yes, thank you for asking."
A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold. Aldo Leopold was originally from Iowa and became on of the first conservation warden with the US Fish and Game Service. He lived the last 30 years or so of his life in Wisconsin teaching at the University of Wisconsin and experimenting with the land on the farm he bought an hour or so NW of Madison. This book includes his reflections on land, animals, conservation etc. Its funny how a book nearly 70 years old still hits on so many points today that Leopold saw as being an issue back in the 40's.
