    The book I chose to read and do my book journal on this quarter was In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. I really thought that this book was much longer than it really should have been, although it was still a fairly interesting book. The idea that someone you have never met and never heard about could rob and kill everyone in your house is a rather unnerving notion.

    Perry Smith: The Serene Man with the Explosive Temper Perry Smith is perhaps the nicest, most gentle-hearted man I've ever met in my life.
