Seattle, WA -- July 25, 2007

Reading Bag of Bones, by Stephen King. His favorite book of all time--Band of Brothers, by Stephen Ambrose. After reading it he appreciates soldiers more--how they had to cope with being short handed, not having enough ammunition, and that they volunteered to do it to protect our stupid selves. He has one friend who is in the war right now who drives a tank, but hasn’t kept up with him very well because of the time difference.

He's a writer himself and is reading this book for the second time to learn how Stephen King does it. He’s tried writing horror, realistic fiction, fantasy. He reads Tolkien and Jordan to see what doesn’t work.
