Posted on 09/27/2007 8:09:20 AM PDT by MplsSteve
It's time again for my quarterly "What Are You Reading Now?" thread!
It can be anything...a NY Times bestseller, a technical journal, a trashy pulp novel...in short, anything!
DO NOT answer by saying "I'm Reading This Thread". It stopped being funny a long time ago.
Here's what I'm reading. I'm just about finished with "Street Without Joy" by Bernard Fall. It's about France's war in Vietnam from 1946-1954. Very interesting and tragic.
So, tell me. What are you reading now?
The Concerto by Michael Steinberg. An analysis of the best of that musical genre.
Currently I am reading this thread.
For Work- Essential ActionScript 3.0 (Adobe killed us by not making AS2.0 and 3.0 compatible with the new upgrade of Flash.)
a continuation of Pride and Prejudice...
my FAVORITE book of all time...
“Boogie Woogie Stomp, Albert Ammons And His Music” by Christopher I. Page
VDH’s A War Like No Other and Schweikart’s A Patirot’s History of the United States
Don’t have the titles with me at work, but reading a book on obtaining grandparents’ rights (DIL sued for divorce in June, has been very restrictive with letting us or our son see our grandson); and a book on craniosacral therapy. (Daughter has fibromyalgia, and one dr has recommended CS sessions. Sessions are infrequent and only partially covered by insurance.)
Re-reading Blind Man’s Bluff about the exploits of the American submarine fleet during the Cold War. I’m at the point now that is discussing a phone tap placed on an underground cable near between the Soviet sub base on an island and the mainland base. When finally discovered after many years by the Soviets, they found a little stamp on the recording device that said “Property of United States Government.”
True heroes all.
The River of Doubt. The true story of TR’s post-presidential exploration of a previously-uncharted 1,000 mile river in the Amazon. A great story, a great read.
Just finished Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, again.
Getting ready to start Atlas Shrugged, again.
“Until Proven Innocent”, the book about the Duke Rape Hoax.
Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson are the co-authors.
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln
I just finished “First Man” about Neil Armstrong. A pretty good read. Going the book store tomorrow to look for another to start.
I am always in process of re-reading the Bible.
Farewell to Marx by David Conway
The Reagan Diary
Now They Call Me Infidel - Noni Darwish
