Heh heh, the 2003 Bloggies.

Happy New Year. Just finished reading The Pirate Hunter, by Richard Zacks. It’s the true story of Captain Kidd, the famed 17th century “pirate” that has had a bad rap for the past 300 years. It was an interesting book and very historical, but took me a long while to get through. I don’t think it was the book’s fault, although the pages are large and the type is small. What’s really fascinating is how part of the story takes place right here in Boston, which was a surprise. You don’t think of Boston and pirates, do you?

Next up… The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Whoa.
