Just over two years ago I posted something along these same lines - adventures in real-life supplant adventures in armchairs. The past few years have been no exception - 2 major moves (across nearly half of our small marble) as well as some roaming have left my library secured in boxes.
A few books have been read, including Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol, but the vast majority of my time has been spend with travel books, maps, and government paperwork. (Yuck to the later!) In a bid to tie up loose ends, mini-reviews will appear shortly.
As a promise to a friend, I'm reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for her book-club. Review appearing in a few weeks. Stay tuned.
