My oldest son has a Kindle. He goes out and gets his own books. I was worried initially that he would get something inappropriate. At this point though, I have to admit that my public education has left me entirely incapable of understanding his homeschool reading list.

The Amazon emails come to my account which is the only way I know what's going on. Today this one showed up:

How many stars would you give 'The Metamorphoses of Publius Ovidus Naso in English blank verse Vols. I & II'?

Heck, I don't even know what that is. I'm sure it was thrilling. I'm still struggling my way through a Harry Turtledove novel.

"Where's that damned waitress gotten to?"
