Ok, I'm on duty today at one of the slow stations. 2 days ago I took the boys to the library, everybody got books. Today I started mine. "Empire", by Orson Scott Card.
So far, I've read about an assassination, a possible coup, and now I'm up to the part about giant walking killer robots. When I left two of the main charactors had armed themselves and were trying to get out of New York.
I'm about to put my station out of service, and lock the door to see what happens next.
