    I thought it would be interesting and fun to list the last five books you have read. Or if you don’t read often the last ones you can remember. Also if you finish a new book, post it down the road.

    Mine:
    1. Inside Terrorism: by Bruce Hoffman
    1. Anonymous Soldiers: (The Struggle for Israel 1917-1947) by Bruce Hoffman
    2. The Taj Mahal
    3. Wild At Heart
    4. Islam(an introduction to the religion and culture)
    5. The ISIS Hostage

    Go....

    The Reckoning - John Grisham
    Old Black Magic - Robert B Parker
    Past Tense - Lee child
    Money Shot - Stuart Woods
    The Fallen - David Baldacci

    A blessing and a curse. I am out living several of my favorite authors, and I have caught up with most that are still alive. Waiting for them to write something new can be very taxing.

    LOL, I have been on a Reacher kick lately. So they would all be Jack Reacher books.

    Been there and done that. I was really irritated when the first movie came out and saw the semi midget playing Jack Reacher, who was well a semi giant.

    I read about a book a day. Right now I am reading paranormal urban fantasy. I grew up reading science fiction but in the last few decades, it has changed a lot and become more militaristic or fanciful. I also subscribe to a bunch of magazines that cover a lot of territory. When I am in the car or truck there is usually a book on tape running.

    Isn't that the truth!! :eek: When you have such good books why do they stoop to casting somebody to sell tickets. I am thinking Dolph Lundgren or Liam Neeson. Maybe Jason Momoa all would be good choices. Tom Cruise was a joke. Very disappointing.

    Right?!? WTF? Dolph Lundgren was my first thought too lol, but he is probably too old now. A young Arnie or David Prowse also could have worked. Momoa? I hadn't thought of him though he did great in Aquaman. Why not The Rock? Dwayne Johnson. I think he could have pulled it off.

    The Rock would work although Reacher was fair haired if I remember correctly. Jason Mamoa also did a pretty respectable Conan the Barbarian, and I think he is bigger than the rest.

    Well I did make a valiant attempt at reading Ron Chernow's biography of Ulysses Grant. I did enjoy it, and Chernow raised some questions that put Grant in an entirely different light. I hold him, Grant, in a much more highly regarded position now.

    The down side is I think Ron Chernow gets paid by the word. I was 300 pages in, and I hadn't even gotten to Vicksburg. I will continue, but to use a military term this is a forced march, and this is a part of our history that I thoroughly enjoy.

    I just finished reading a book on " the ruby ridge siege" . Preppers should read this . Some folks undoubtedly don't know the Weaver family was preppers with two years of food stockpiled . The government was so afraid of their strange life style they had surveillance cameras watching their house and reconnaissance by aircraft . Their experience has an erie similarity ,to my own experience , being put under government surveillance for several years myself in my retreat . Randy Weaver and I were both ex Green Berets . It's amazing who the government will deem a threat to society .
