    Hey Everyone! Today I got my late Christmas present in the mail. It is a book by J.Stuart Thomson called Anatomy of the Tortoise. I am more of a book person rather than search the internet kind of person. Does anyone have this book? I am really excited to start reading it. I will give you guys an update tomorrow on how I think it is!!!

    I remember how I LOVED to read, now I have NO time to read! Kids running around with their hands waving above their heads screaming! There's NO WAY I can concentrate! LOL Have fun reading the book!

    It is a good book, although it is older and not heavily illustrated (some drawings with numbers all around them.) You'll probably find it a bit dry to just plow through, but I use it as a reference all the time.
