I doubt anyone could guess it so I will not hold you in suspense. I got my Prince William County, VA library card. Now why is this important?
The first book I checked out was by Dr. Amy Chua, it is Day of Empire. So far I have thoroughly enjoyed it. She looks at several empires over the history of the world. She explains how the empire came about, what made it unique, how it prospered, and how the empire decayed and eventually imploded. You will also read a foreshadow of her highly successful book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom.
