Yet another book:

This one was A Chosen Few: The Resurrection of European Jewry by Mark Kurlansky.

I found this well-written, but very hard to read. There's a lot in here about Holocaust survivors; I have my own family stories to haunt me, so this stirred up a lot of emotions.

If you want to find out what has happened to the Jews of Europe since WWII, this is a fine book to read.

This last week or so has been busy. Working out at the gym, watching Gilmore Girls with forestcats; trying my hand at Way of the Samurai; building an electric table miter saw; taking the dogs to dog park; watching and dumping Tomb Raider; Dungeonmaster Saturday night with the guest appearance of mr_curmudgeon; finding that the food at On the Border just isn't worth it....busy.
