Little Things Mean a Lot. . . and Now a Mystery

Well, I finished Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point and I am glad I read it. I have no intention of writing a thoughtful, extended analysis and I hope I am not being too glib when I say that one of its central messages is that "little things mean a lot" when trying to make changes and deal with major problems. But it is one of his major points and we can learn from it.

Now back to my normal reading as I begin Michael Connelly's Echo Park, a mystery in which detective Harry Bosch is drawn back to a case on which he worked but couldn't solve over a decade earlier.

Ah yes, this book seems like a perfect companion on my daily walks around the neighborhood.

I never did master the art of reading while walking Leon:)

A seat in the park is more my style. ;))

Not a problem Eric; it's the same area almost every day and I've only walked into parked cars twice over the years. |:-(
