Hmmm. Well, let’s see...I have The Celts and Aztecs by my bed.
When one gets boring, I look at the photos, then pick up the other book to read for a while before I get too sleepy.
It will soon be time to start on LOTR, once more. (I’ve read it at least once a year since 1970.)
Gulag Archipelago whenever I can’t stand to look at my nursing school books.
Yoga Journal... I used to read almost two-three books a week before I started nursing school. Can’t wait to be done.
Be sure to read the sequel “World without end” which I believe is still in hardcover. It involves the years in Kingsbridge (200 years or so after Pillars) when the Plague was wiping folks out all over Europe.
Just finished “the road”...very good
a short history of nearly everything
the chief...a bio of wm rand. hearst
the time travellers wife....novel.
The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Diamond also wrote a book "Collapse" which was equally fascinating.
I could not help thinking about "Atlas Shrugged" while I was reading it.
Sounds interesting and right up my alley. I'll have to check it out.
Currently reading the series by Tom Kratman that starts with “A Desert Called Peace”.
Just finished “The Last Centurion” by John Ringo.
Tony Hillerman...... The Skeleton man
I’ve been re reading the WEB Griffin Philadelphis PD series.
Carl Sandburg’s biography of Lincoln. One of the best things I’ve ever read in my whole life.
The Tay Son Uprising: Society And Rebellion in Eighteenth-century Vietnam
“Samuel Pepys Diary,” for about the 5th time (Richard Le Galliene edition). It’s a remarkable document that lays human foibles bare. And it’s a first-person confession of how “public servants” can grow very rich while on the public payroll, something that has a direct connection with the current U.S. budget meltdown.
The discovery documents of the COPs I’m suing!
Can you find the mouse in "Goodnight Moon?"
I read that one! I’ve read a couple more of his books. One was another story of simultaneous events in history, the other about the Galveston Hurricane of 1900.
