Haven't started it yet, but Plainsong by Kent Haruf. And I'm finishing up The Worst Journey In The World by Apsley Cherry-Garrard.
It's the story of the 1910-1913 Terra Nova expedition to Antarctica led by Captain Robert Scott, as told by a member of the expedition himself.
Wonderful book. Read it if you have the time.
pretty good book. the constant "burn this book" is a riot.
wyrde, crooked little vein is one of the most twisted books I've ever read. there's another one you might like, I'll need to find it at home and
get the name (if it's still there). it runs in a similarly crazy pattern.
"I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist"
By Noram Geisler & Frank Turek
The title says it all. Highly recommended to both sides of the debate. Much food for thought.
I am also reading:
"Brother Odd" by Dean Koontz
I really like this series of books about Odd Thomas but I really wish Koontz would get back to finishing the stories that began in "Fear Nothing"
and continued in "Sieze The Night"; If you have not read these books, I urge to check them out. The characters of Christopher Snow and his friends
are the most likeable and believable bunch that Koontz ever invented. He has stated on more than one occasion that he will finish the series; I just
wish he would get on with it, already!
i just finished The Stand - Stephen King
strange ending, i thought
and was reading the dark tower series before that
so now i'm gunna finish that
Song of Susana, The Dark Tower VI - Stephen King
Tax season is upon me so I don't get much time to read these days. I've got Duma Key on the nightstand. King is perfect in short bursts. SO far
it's pretty good. Slower paced than his stuff usually is but still entertaining.
If you've ever seen Mountains of the Moon, it was about Captain Burton's search for the source of
the Nile. A good and underrated, underappreciated film, I think.
I first became aware of Burton when I read Philip Jose Farmer's sci-fi classic Riverworld series
where he's a fictional character, along with Mark Twain, King John, Motzart, Tom Mix, Jack London... It's a ripper.
