It can sometimes be amazing how relaxing a good book can be. I just bought an advance readers copy (ARC) of John Ringo's latest book 'Live Free or Die' and have been reading for the past 2 or so hours. The result? I am a lot more relaxed than I was at the time of my last update and have even started to feel quite cheerful. And now I think I'm going to read a multi thousand word essay on cultural influence on a warfighter, for fun.
