Rest Day

Took a day off to recover from the early mornings of late. So I'll do a book update and be done.

My last update was January 27th. Finished:

1. The House of Intellect by Jacques Barzan - better than the title suggests
2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling - good
3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling - good
4. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling - not so good relative to the others
5. Letters to Alice on First Reading Jane Austen by Fay Weldon -just ok but learned a neat trick on how to keep coffee grounds at the bottom of the coffee pot
6. Science and Culture - edited by Gerald Holton. - a collection of essays. Most extremely tedious. One or two worthy of reading. Got a good tip on a classical piece of music. Most interesting in this collection was an essay critical of the Apollo program (book was written in 1965 or so).

I agree on the Harry Potter ratings. Haven't read any of the other books you mentioned.

I'd love to know what the Apollo essay was titled and how to get a copy.
