Posted on 07/07/2011 12:57:12 PM PDT by MplsSteve
Hi everyone! I hope your 4th of July was a good one.
it's time again for my quarterly "What Are You Reading Now?" thread. As you know, I consider Freepers to be among the most well-read of those of us on the Internet and I like to see what other Freepers are reading these days.
It can be anything - a classic novel, a trashy pulp romance, a technical journal, etc. Please do not deile this thread by posting "I'm reading this thread". it became very unfunny a long time ago.
I'll start. I'm just finishing "Chancellorsville 1863: The Souls of the Brave" by Ernest Furgurson. It's OK. Nothing to rave about though.
Well, what are you reading now? Let's hear about it!
I am currently reading The Naked Communist by W. Cleon Skousen, as well as None Dare Call it Conspiracy by Gary Allen - a must read for every single American. None Dare...can be read online - it was written in the 70s. link... http://www.captaincanadacrusades.ca/articles/none-dare-call-it-conspiracy%5B1%5D.pdf
“Bottom Dwellers” by A. Shane Etter
Just finished “Plain Wisdom, An Invitation Into an Amish Home and the Hearts of Two Women”, by Cindy Woodsmall and Miriam Flaud
I am going to disappoint you horribly! I am reading, “Charlotte’s Web” to my five year old. There will come a day when I can pick a book of MY selection, without pictures. I am not there yet! I will take notes, however, on any good books FR’s are reading (unless they have pictues and I will ignore those).
Living Dead II. It’s an anthology of zombie short stories. It came out about a year ago. I’m enjoying it very much. It’s better than volume I. I know there are a lot of Freeper zombie fans out there.
“Matterhorn” by Karl Marlantes
I just finished a Christian thriller -Enemies Among Us. It is about an FBI agent by a former agent. It is his first book.
A back stack of magazines over a foot high.
I am reading Myths of Crete and Pre-Hellenic Europe by Donald MacKenzie (on my kindle) and I am working my way (again) through the 26-volume series Man, Myth, and Magic, ed Richard Cavendish.
“Playing God in Yellowstone” by Alston Chase
Just received Mamet’s new book in the mail last night. Plan to start reading it tonight. Just finished re-reading the Harry Potter series, in preparation for viewing the final movie.
“Empire of the Summer Moon,” by S.C. Gwynne
“Essays of Lord Acton, Vol. II,” ed. by J. Rufus Fears
and on CD, “Ghost Soldiers,” by Hampton Sides
reading queen of demons, and still trying to help my 7 year old through the chronicles of narnia.
next tuesday (on it’s release date) i’ll be starting dance with dragons - the latest in martin’s a song of fire and ice.
Just finished “Confessions of D-List Supervillian.” Someone wrote that book for me...
Now I’m trying to clear my way through the 800-odd “samples” on my Kindle so that I can get to my 500+ books that I have on the Kindle. Then its on to the Wish List!
For the Life of the World: Sacraments and Orthodoxy by Alexander Schmemann
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home by Jenni Bauer
The Life and Campaigns of Lieut. Gen. T.J. (Stonewall) Jackson by R. L. Dabney D.D.
I have the one recommended by Rush on my Kindle - Reckless Endangerment.
