  • Americans Reading Fewer Books Than in Past

    Gallup ^ | 1/10/21 | JEFFREY M. JONES
    Americans say they read an average of 12.6 books during the past year, a smaller number than Gallup has measured in any prior survey dating back to 1990. U.S. adults are reading roughly two or three fewer books per year than they did between 2001 and 2016. ...results are based on a Dec. 1-16 poll, which updated a trend question on book reading. The question asks Americans to say how many books they "read, either all or part of the way through" in the past year. Interviewers are instructed to include all forms of books, including printed books but also...
  • Nazi archive on Freemasonry with trove of 80,000 items amassed by Heinrich Himmler could shed light on the secret society, researchers say

    UK Daily Mail ^ | 9 January 2022 | Jack Newman
    A historic archive of Freemasonry amassed by the Nazis in their wartime purge could still reveal secrets about the society, researchers say. From insight into women's Masonic lodges to the musical scores used in closed ceremonies, the trove - housed in an old university library in western Poland - has already shed light on a little known history. But more work remains to be done to fully examine all the 80,000 items that date from the 17th century to the pre-World War II period.

Author Michael T. Cibenko, who lives in Branchville, shares his expert knowledge of Japanese culture and language to create a memorable and authentic epic of early Christian Japan, a very interesting and complex period in history. Cibenko lived in southern Japan from 1996-2000 where he was an...

    Facebook has "permanently disabled" the ads account of a conservative children's book publisher, claiming that Heroes of Liberty – which has published books about Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, former President Ronald Reagan and author Thomas Sowell – violated the company's rules against "Low Quality or Disruptive Content." Facebook originally locked the ads account on Dec. 23, and after Heroes of Liberty appealed the ruling, the company permanently disabled the account. "The question is: is a children's biography of Ronald Reagan no longer permissible on Facebook? We don’t know. But apparently promoting one may well kill a business," Heroes...

    Our year in reading, featuring book recommendations from Federalist writers and contributors.Last year around this time, I lamented the end of 2020 with the expectation that better times had to be lurking around the corner. Well, I sincerely hope you had a good year, but it seems like the year was defined by inflation, the Afghanistan debacle, lapsing back into more COVID restrictions, and other disasters.In other words, it was the second year in a row to retreat into a book and at least forget about day-to-day affairs for a while. With that in mind we bring you The Federalist’s...

But for me, music and storytelling felt especially urgent during this pandemic year—a way to connect even when we were cooped up,” Obama wrote in his post. “I’ll start by sharing some of the books that I read this year that left a lasting impression, and I’m excited to share my favorite movies and music in the days to come,” he added.

    Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, has served up a kind of Christmas present to the nation in the form of a new comprehensive policy book, issued by her organization Stand for America, serving up conservative solutions for our nation's many challenges -- domestic and foreign. Conservatives get a bad rap that they just say "no." That they're against everything but never clear what they are for. Haley is one conservative that cannot be accused of not having a broad vision and not being forthcoming in sharing it. It's all here in "American Strength: Conservative Solutions Worth...

    Andrew Cuomo ordered to return $5.1M pandemic book profits to state New York’s ethics watchdog panel ordered disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo to return the $5.1 million in profits from his pandemic book deal to the state next month. The extraordinary resolution was approved Tuesday by the Joint Commission on Public Ethics in a 12-1 vote — coming a month after the ethics agency voted to revoke its prior approval allowing Cuomo to earn outside income from his book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” while he was still governor and New York was still battling the deadly viral...

    Anne Rice, the gothic novelist widely known for her bestselling novel “Interview with the Vampire,” died late Saturday at the age of 80. Rice died due to complications from a stroke, her son Christopher Rice announced on her Facebook page and his Twitter page. “In her final hours, I sat beside her hospital bed in awe of her accomplishments and her courage,” Christopher Rice wrote in the statement. Anne Rice was the author of the 1976 novel “Interview with the Vampire,” which was later adapted into a movie starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in 1994. It was also expected...
  • Trump slams Netanyahu in curse-fueled interview for congratulating Biden: 'F--- him'

    Trump accused Netanyahu of speaking up too quickly following what the former president has still yet to concede was a legitimate election. "Nobody did more for Bibi. And I liked Bibi. I still like Bibi," he said, referring to the former prime minister by his nickname. "But I also like loyalty. The first person to congratulate Biden was Bibi. And not only did he congratulate him, he did it on tape." Despite Trump’s condemnation of Netanyahu, the then-prime minister was not amongst one of the first world leaders to congratulate Biden for securing the presidential win. Netanyahu waited roughly 12...

    It's no secret: Chris Christie wants to be president. He’s relentlessly promoting his new book to get his face in front of all the major news media. But while he claims he wants to remake the Republican Party, Mark takes him to task, exposing him as a fraud, a blowhard, and a man without a backbone. He's a RINO and has no business representing the Republican Party.
  • Are Summer Reading Assignments Indoctrinating Freshmen?

    Often, incoming freshmen receive their first university assignment before the school year even begins: the summer reading. Many institutions see the summer reading assignment as an opportunity for new students to develop a sense of camaraderie. By reading the same book, the idea is that students will engage in thought-provoking conversations and have a shared educational experience. Common reading programs are an opportunity to start students’ education on an intellectual high note. Before the semester even begins, students can begin grappling with good reading material that will prepare them for an academically rigorous time in college. Unfortunately, research from the...

    Earlier this week, Trump flat-out denied Meadows’ account in a statement. “The story of me having COVID prior to, or during, the first debate is Fake News,” Trump said Wednesday. “In fact, a test revealed that I did not have COVID prior to the debate.” Privately, Trump was “furious about what is in the book and he’s angry with Mark Meadows,” CNN reported Wednesday. Then Meadows, rather incredibly, agreed with Trump’s assessment. “Well, the president’s right, it’s fake news,” he said during an interview with Newsmax Wednesday. “If you actually read the book, the context of it, that story outlined...

    Former President Donald Trump has already sold more than 100,000 copies of his book Our Journey Together, his publisher told Breitbart News exclusively. “President Trump continues to break records, the books are literally flying off, and we can’t keep up with demand,” Sergio Gor, the president of Winning Team Publishing, told Breitbart News on Thursday. “Thousands are writing to us asking when we will have more books available.” Trump’s more than 100,000 copies sold is 50 times more than the approximately 2,000 copies former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie sold of his latest book. Christie, who has been critical of...

    When the frizzy-haired Marxists at my local library start ranting about seizing the means of production, they’re not talking about factories anymore. They’re talking about you, your womb, & its output. We have put childless despots like this in positions of authority over our kids. They have cleverly figured out that their great nihilistic cultural project requires your children to see it through to the end. And they are coming for them. You can hear the plains vibrating as the great galloping horde approacheth your elementary school. After all, their harebrained schemes will only work if they can fool a...

    It’s hard to recall a former politician who was showered with more free media attention than Chris Christie this month as he peddled his new book, “Republican Rescue.” Invited to appear on a carousel of shows, Christie was all-present as journalists lined up to interview him. CNN even dedicated an entire primetime hour to him, treating the in-your-face Republican as one of the most important political voices in the country. Consumers aren’t buying it. A senior publishing source with access to the industry’s BookScan tabulations tells me that “Republican Rescue” sold just 2,289 copies during its first week in stores,...
