  1. I finished the biography Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush by Jon Meacham. Well researched and great use of interviews of the elder Bush couple that was published around 3 years before their deaths in 2018. I read J.R.R. Tolkien's Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-earth (edited by son Christopher), basically only the last third when it covers people and events of the Third Age was worth the time to read.
  2. Just want to chime in with this thought. At the beginning of the books, everyone acknowledges that it's been a long summer already and the North being the North they know winter is coming and it's probably going to be long one. Why attempt to make a betrothal when it's possible that Robb or his betroth might not survive what is going to be a winter that will at be at least be 3 years long but probably longer? My assumption is that in Ned's mind after the coming winter, he and a 18 to 20-something year old Robb would have done a circuit around the North to check how everyone fared like a responsible Stark of Winterfell on the surface but subtly for Robb to see eligible noblewomen as well as to be seen as "the Heir" who needs to marry.
  3. It's the first of October, the beginning of fall in the North (except for Tennessee where it's almost 100-degrees) and spring in the South, and it's time for a next Reading Thread for 2019. I'm currently reading Jon Meacham's Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush. What are you reading?
