Columbine by Dave Cullen.

1 kid a psychopath. The other a soft, delecate kid, easily led depressive.

After this is done, it is time for lighter Summer reading.

Just completed Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby.

Didn't realize it was a book written by the an Arsenal an about his love for the club. The 2004 movie with Jimmy Fallon was made around the Red Sox. Guess a soccer movie in America is still a bridge too far.

The Black Witch.

Heard on a podcast the liberals were shouting that nobody should by this book- so I bought it just to be contrarian. It's an okay read. The first 40% of the book, the lead character is a whiny little victim. She's womaning up now.

Author does have a writng tick which annoys me. Everyone seems to 'knitting the brow". Halfway through. I've seen that phrase a dozen times. She needs shave her eyebrow issue.

I don't know what the hell I'm reading.

I have a Kindle.

Once you open a book, you don't see the title anymore.

So I read, rinse, repeat. Hardly ever remembering the title or author.

Unless it's really good, or if I was on a library wait list.

One of the shampoo ingredients(in the expensive shampoos the wife uses is urea).......urea is made from mammal pizz

Definition of urea
: a soluble weakly basic nitrogenous compound CO(NH2)2 that is the chief solid component of mammalian urine and an end product of protein decomposition, is synthesized from carbon dioxide and ammonia, and is used especially in synthesis (as of resins and plastics) and in fertilizers and animal rations d'oh!
