Thanks for the comment about feeling a bit overwhelmed with the RSS aggregator. I often feel that way myself. There's just so much to read. If you're looking for a good book, you might check out The Google Story by David Vise. I'm in the middle of the book and really enjoying it. If you want a novel, I just listened to The Collectors by David Baldacci. It had been a long time since I'd read a novel and I really enjoyed it.
By the way, when you get a chance check out my on-line Living Textbook at http://www.Pass-Ed.com/business.html
