Losing Book-Itz

After reading Finding Manana, I've been interested in Cuba, so I'm reading Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life by Jon Lee Anderson, which I have had for a few years but hadn't gotten around to. It is thorough: excluding the appendix, notes and bibliography -- 754 pages. Fortunately, there's a lot of context about Latin American politics and economics, so it's more than just a recount of one man's life. But this is no way to get ahead on the reading list.

So, your Che fact of the day: He had bad asthma.

interesting fact. hee.

after looking over all of the lists, i've determined that it's all about staying power. the upstarts are bound to burn out more quickly. pace your self with your asthma book! :)

at any rate, at this point, you're still in the top 3.
