The Celts by Gerhard Hern. Picked it up from the Providence Athenaeum (highly recommend visiting for any book nerds)
"The British were met with their own weapons. They had gone down in the mire to destroy us and our nation, and down after them we had to go to stop them."

Working my way through The Chronicles of Narnia before I rewatch all the adaptations. Right now, I'm on The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis.

Looking forward for Stephen King's new book The Institute coming out next week!
I just want you to please note that any knowledge I show throughout NS is based off of a 3rd grade education. All this means is that I probably know absolutely nothing about any subject I post about.
Thank God for Wikipedia!

John Smith - Patterson's Volunteers So far, it seems to be a low budget Dirk Pitt story
CYNIC, n. A blackguard whose faulty vision sees things as they are, not as they ought to be. Hence the custom among the Scythians of plucking out a cynic's eyes to improve his vision.

Started reading The Jixia Academy and the Birth of Higher Learning in China: A Comparison of Fourth Century B.C. Chinese Education with Ancient Greece by Richard A. Hartnett. It is interesting if a bit confusing.

Rereading The Two Towers.
Patriotic centrist American, who is right leaning. I support the Bill of Rights. I have no loyalty to any party. Expand or die. That's how humanity works. Science fiction is the best genre. The solar system is ours for the taking. I am a male. You can't spell team without "me". I support the troops.
Call me Pax. I take things literally, being a literal person.
Copy and paste this into your sig if you think we should colonize other planets.
Freedom is never free, so remember those who died for it

The country is the people, not the gov't
Doomsday is inevitable. Learn to survive.
Pro:Bill of Rights,guns,centrism,capitalism,socialism,space exploration,Christianity,privacy
Anti: Trump,Clinton,fascism,Communism,big business

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius.

"All things of the body stream away like a river, all things of the mind are dreams and delusions; life is warfare and a visit in a strange land; the only lasting fame is oblivion." 2:17
