    Actually, I came across your book on Amazon while placing another book order, you know, the "people that bought this book also bought....."

    Last Stand at Papago Wells -Louis L'amour

    Currently reading- Landscaping with Fruit
    I have a ton of Louis L'amour books that I was given because I like books in the genre and time period. When I tried reading it in my teens I just couldn't get hooked onto his writing style... I'll have to try again, because I feel like I would really enjoy the stories.

    Outside of bible study, I've actually gotten wrapped up with Dave Ramsey material. I am starting the 9-week class series tomorrow, but I've already read the manual cover-to-cover and bought More Than Enough and EntreLeadership to start on in my spare time. I'm a soon-to-be-CPA and have learned a TON from this guy already. Great common sense and easy-to-understand reading.

    I don't see a problem with asking here, Cameron.

    Apparently to many, I am a Luddite though, I don't have a FB account.

    I just finished reading The Skystone, the first of the series. Now I'll have to go find the rest of them. Interesting parallels between the dissolution of the Roman Empire and our society of today, as well as lessons on the strength of one's character and the danger of hubris.

    Cameron,

    Hear that? Cha-ching! Why bother with a sample when the book is so reasonably priced on Kindle?

    I'll let you know what I think....

    You can sign my copy here:

    "Assignment to Hell"
    A book about WWII journalists, including Walter Cronkite and Andy Rooney. While I held both in high respect for their WWII efforts, I learned a lot more about them and raised my level of respect even higher. Great book! I can just see "Little" Andy manning the guns of that B-17 !

    Now reading "No Easy Day" by Mark Owen. It is a firsthand account of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden.

    Two recent books:

    The Narrows (Harry Bosch) by Michael Connelly

    and

    The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Relgion by Jonathan Haidt
    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/25/bo...pagewanted=all

    A fascinating book about how Liberals and Conservatives differ in thinking about moral issues. It explains why people have such a difficult time talking rationally about these issues. Also check out www.yourmorals.org and you can see how you score on the research instrument.
