Daily Thoughts 08/05/2012

I finished Chimera by T.C. McCarthy.  T.C. McCarthy is a military analyst and it shows in his science fiction writing.  The story is about genetic engineering.  The setting alternates between the United States, Spain, Thailand, and Burma.  There is a lot of action in the story.  The story is very dark with strong language  and themes of covert warfare, sniping, espionage, and jungle warfare.

I also continue to read Don't Sweat The Small and It's All Small Stuff.  I am enjoying reading this book.  It has given me some insight into how to be more peaceful and contented.

This makes me wonder when it will be common to download small video trailers about a book with your e-book download.
