Posted on 07/03/2008 8:40:03 AM PDT by MplsSteve
OK everyone, it's time for my quarterly "What Are You Reading Now?" thread.
I like finding out what Freepers are reading lately. It can be anything...a technical journal, a trashy pulp novel, an old classic...in short, anything!
Please do not defile this thread by posting "I'm Reading This Thread". It became very unfunny a long time ago.
I'll start. I'm close to finishing "The Last Valley" by Martin Windrow. It's about the siege/battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954.
Well, what are you reading now?!
Mere Christianity -C.S. Lewis
“I’d Rather Be The Devil: Skip James +the Blues” by Stephen Calt.
Light in August by William Faulkner
Working on several materials related to Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio. MRDS. Also, database index programming. Also, same old pile of philosophy books.
The last good one was James Madison and the Struggle For the Bill of Rights by Richard Lubunski.
I started Thomas Jefferson: Secrets at Monticello and it was a bunch of tabloid/gossip rubbish!
Right now I’m reading Atlas Shrugged. I don’t know how that copy of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Comics Omnibus 2” got on my nightstand.
I just finished Vince Flynn’s ‘Protect and Defend’. Now I have just started W.E.B. Griffith’s ‘Death and Honor’.
Beer & Food: An American History by Bob Skilnik (aka, me)
It starts off slow, but after a few unforeseen plot twists, it got to where I couldn't put it down. I would recommend this to anyone who wishes to get 15% of their recommended daily allowance of niacin in one meal.
I’m finally getting around to finishing up the seven book Stephen King “Dark Tower” series that I started almost twenty years ago.
Just about done with “Brother Odd” by Dean Koontz.
Alas, prepping for the classes I’ll teach next school year and doing background reading, nothing cool:
The Accidental Library Systems Manager, Gordon
Library and Information Center Management, Stueart and Moran
Just finished “Snowflower and the Secret Fan” by Lisa See about womens’ life in 18th century China. (which was excellent) Am reading “She’s Come Undone”, which is a little racy for this traditional Catholic girl... I am not a Wally Lamb fan.
I’m reading “The Killer Angels” by Michael Shaara.
Today is the anniversary of Pickett’s Charge, and the last day of the Gettysburg battle.
How is Brother Odd? It has been sitting on my shelf for almsot a year.
