Randy Pausch

In case you have been living under a rock or been shipwrecked on a deserted island during the last few days, Randy Pausch died on Friday. He was the author of best-selling book titled, The Last Lecture.

Memorable words: "We can't change the cards we're dealt, just how we play the hand. If I'm not as depressed as you think I should be, I'm sorry to disappoint you."

What are you reading these days?

I am reading The Appeal by John Grisham. It's really good so far. My copy of Enrique's Journey came today so I hope to complete The Appeal by tomorrow so I can start on my new book that we'll discuss in August.

In the meantime, we meet tomorrow to discuss Mistaken Identity.
