You didn't learn enough about the crusades in school?

Not that I can really remember to be honest.

I didn't really get into the social studies curriculum at school until grade 12 so I didn't pay attention much to it, but I think after reading the books for Black Hawk Down and We Were Soldiers, slowly but surely, things such as those events, as well as current events and past events have become of interest of me.

I also watched Kingdom of Heaven yesterday and thought it was interesting so I wanted to learn more LOL

I thought Kingdom of Heaven really sucked.

Let me know how Blindness is. I've been wanting to read it, but never got around to it.

It was a pretty mediocre movie, but the subject matter itself is interesting.

I dunno when I'll get around to reading Blindness, but I surely will let you know how I thought it was.
