    Magic is the key. It lets you believe again...I could use some right now. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the book, let us know what you think.

    I actually didn't finish reading the Civil War women's diaries until the end of the first week of May. Since then, I have also read Josie Underwood, The Civil War Diary of Josie Underwood, Harriet E. Wilson, Our Nig: Sketches in the Life of a Free Black, and Louise Wigfall Wright, A Southern Girl in '61.

    I started reading my books on the Civil War and Reconstruction in Arkansas in mid-August. Thus far, I have read William Baxter, Pea Ridge and Prairie Grove and Mark K. Christ, All Cut to Pieces and Gone to Hell. I am about half-way through with Powell Clayton, The Aftermath of the Civil War in Arkansas.

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish reading the Great Historians of the Western World by the end of the year, but then again, this reading project has no set time limit. Anyhow, I have finished reading Tacitus, The Annals and The Histories (both about Roman history ). I am currently about half-way done with Plutarch, The Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans.

    One book I would recommend that I finished a few months ago: Who Moved My Cheese? By Dr. Spencer Johnson. This is a great book for management types dealing with organizational change , its affects on subordinate employees and how to move past it.
