I'm currently reading "An Oral History of World War Z" by Max Brooks. It's an interesting read of an epic battle between humanity and Zombies as told by survivors around the world. Each vignette sheds light on how people fought the Zombies, what worked, what didn't, what happened to allow the Zombie outbreak to spread, etc. It's a good summer-time read. You know something to pass the time while you are waiting for a never-ending thread to end.
I have several telescopes, but none are semi-APO, APO, or in anyway valuable.
