I have neglected any book posts for a while. Having kids means that one's reading time is necessarily limited, although I do usually get some time to read later in the evening. Gone are the days when I had several books going at once: now I just hit them one at a time. Currently I'm reading John Hale's The Civilization of Europe in the Renaissance, a fairly hefty tome, but quite worthwhile. I hope to post some notes on past books read sometime in the next few days.
