Today a work colleague called me over as I was walking by and pointed me to a book on his desk. It had a post-it note affixed to the front with the single word "Otto" penned on it. I've not known Roman long, but he comes across as a thoughtful individual, and his desk is always surrounded by books and it's clear he has the same reverence for them I do. He handed me the book stating it had been at his bedside for a spell and he though I'd like to have it, as he knew my interest in military history. The book was David Halberstam's "The Coldest Winter". I was very content to accept the gift, as it was a first edition hardcover, and more significantly, it was one of the very same books that I lost in my now infamous basement flood when I was living in Chicago. I had Roman inscribe the book and I'll be adding it the steadily increasing book collection Study. Cheers Roman! One down, seven hundred to go.
