Armada is the second novel written by Ernest Cline (Ready Player One). This was a novel that I was incredibly eager to read based on how much I enjoyed reading Ready Player One. Armada is a story all in its own as it’s not related to Cline’s other work. The
Wolves of the Calla is the 5th (6th) book in the Dark Tower Series by Stephen King. As I mentioned in previous blog entries, I’ve been really digging this series by Stephen King. This installment continued to mesmerize me and I was able to knock it out within a couple

It’s an exciting time for fans of the Cleveland Indians. It’s been nearly 20 years since they’ve played in the World Series (1997) and it’s been 68 years since they’ve won the World Series (1948). As an Indians fan that lives in the state of Louisiana, I’m often asked, “Why?
It’s been an incredibly long time since I’ve written a post on here. Too long in fact. I’m going to make a concerted effort to visit here more often and let everyone in on what’s going on with me. So if you’re still interested, check back soon. -Bob
