A good read...

Or wasting time.  I have been downloading books to read again.  Sometimes I really do think it is a waste to time, but it sure beats watching the idiot box.  I just finished On Gold  Mountain by Lisa See.  It is her story of her Chinese family in America.  They first came over to work on the Pacific Railroad,  She wrote a very interesting story about her ancestor's lives that was so different from anything I have read about the first Chinese immigrants. I was surprised to learn what Gold Mountain was.  Betty would like this book.

Now I have downloaded 1000 naked strangers.  I will probably start on it tonight, but not stay awake till the wee hours to finish it like I did a book earlier this week.

Tomorrow is go home early day.
