One last thought on books

Okay, so I have the book Endurance, that Chad referred too, and it has been sitting on my night stand for about 2-3 years now and I just cannot bring myself to read it. Chad recommended it to me and I know what it's about, and frankly it doesn't sound fun. Just so you know where I'm coming from, I'll give you a quick synopsis. It's a non-fiction story about a boatful of guys who decide to go explore the north pole (or some extremely cold place like that) and they get shipwrecked and have to live off of penguins and seals for months and months til they are rescued. It's an amazing story because they all survive (I think...correct me if I'm wrong Chad). But seriously, reading about months and months of being stranded in arctic temperatures sounds depressing. And cold.

And now a note to Chad:
You're not being ganged up on. Everyone just realizes that my opinion is the right one. Now go make the kids some lunch. I'm busy reading.
