Reading 9-13-5

      Finished the Agony and the Ecstasy. It was a really fun read, and had alot of insight into the history of Florence and Rome during the renaissance. It was a bit slower at the end, which was a bit of a letdown. The first two thirds of the book were extremely well written though. It had an infectious enthusiasm for art, also.     I'm now reading The Seven Pillars of Wisdom by Lawrence of Arabia. It is very well written, in that early twentieth century oxford style. Though I haven't made it very far in yet.
