I'm not a big reader so I was excited I read this entire book!
It Happened On The Way To War, A Marine's Path To Peace
This is a memoir written by Rye Barcott. I was recently given the opportunity to read a proof copy of the book before it was published. It's officially set to be released on March 29th, 2011. Rye works for Duke Energy and held his first "book tour discussion" with a small group of interested employees.

Since I was given a copy before it was published it was a PDF. I didn't want to print it so I tried reading it on my iPhone and it wasn't too bad. I ended up reading most of it on my 3.5" screen which I enjoyed. It was great because I always had it with me and it was small and portable so I could sit or lay in whatever position was comfortable--which is always changing when I'm trying to read. Here's an idea of what it looked like:
At the event I was lucky and my name was drawn to receive a printed copy of the book which Rye signed afterwards. Hopefully I can convince Colbert on Twitter to have him as a guest. Or maybe he'll land a spot on Opera. I wish him the best, fantastic book. If you'd like to read it follow the links to amazon or maybe you can borrow mine.
