July 9

I'm running late on the blog today. I have no excuses other than I think I have the flu. Symptoms will not be discussed as they are not pretty... LOL But mostly my brain is in a hazy fog. So I think instead of writing today is a good day to read. I've got three books I'm reading for my Master's program: 1) the Manchurian Candidate by Richard Condon circa 1959 with a great intro piece explaining what was going on in the world at the time the book was written.
2) The Faithful Spy by Alex Bernson circa 2006
3) Intrigue: espionage and culture by Allan Hepburn (This is a non fiction piece discussing espionage in literature, history, politics and culture.)

Now if only I were writing a spy novel... LOL.

Cheers everyone!
