Notes from the front porch
You'll notice this blog's name change. This blog was formerly titled "Bill's Reading Habits" - a bit pedestrian. I preferred pedestrian at the time, given the personal, provincial nature of my posts. Actually, I just couldn't think of anything else to call it. Recently, however, I ran across a mix-cd I made called "Notes from the Front Porch," a title meant to signify my current life in the Trailer of Paradise. Wendy and I have a magnificent front porch (for a trailer). I sometimes even take notes on it. There you have it: examinations of life and literature from the front porch of an inconspicuous trailer in the middle of Pensacola, Florida. The musings of a history grad student soon to be unleashed upon the world like a GI Joe action figure flung casually from a school bus as it winds through the wild backwoods.
