A few months ago, I finished reading Aztec, by Gary Jennings. An exceptionally rich story, set in the Aztec region of modern-day Mexico as told by an old man whose life spanned the last decades prior to the invasion of the Conquistadors.

Beyond the Shadows - Brent Weeks
Started reading Catch 22 but got so bored, first book I have ever started and not finished.
I read The Road and did not like it. Very very dark, not much useful information, really no redeaming value in my opinion. Just a depressing look at how depraved and desperate humanity can become. I am assuming it is supposed to be about the relationship of the father and son, but it just wasn't there for me.

I've been reading biographies of our Presidents and leading political figures. Latest was of Madison; prior, Grant.
I need to read yet another one on Madison; I still don't have him figured out.
Grant may have been one of the best of all times; someone we don't pay enough attention to these days.
If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

I am 2/3 through the Hunger Games trilogy. Not great but entertaining.
The greatest book I've read is still The Godfather.
Not to start a fight but I am pretty sure God didn't write the Bible.

Not to alter the topic but, I watched the movie "No Country for Old Men" three times. Great movie BTW.

I'm sure it's out there... the two million dollars, that is... Do you remember the real live oriental gal that was looking for the suitcase full of money from the movie Fargo? The gal died of exposure IIRC, trying to find it along the highway... sad, that

Oops, forgot to add a book in my post:
Just started: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West by Dee Brown.
My two favorite books (besides the Bible):
Fail-Safe --Totally blows away the movie.
Rise and Fall of the Third Reich-William L. Shirer
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Excellent book, as is Custer Died for Your Sins: An Indian Manifesto by Vine Victor Deloria, Jr.

Agree. Also "To Hell With Honor". Different perspective on the Custer story.

One of my favories was "The Earth Abides" I think the authors last name is Young I read this many years ago. I loved Robert Parkers westerns I read them all. I'm an old man and have read many many books over the years. I can't remember them all. I have read most of Hemingway, Zane Grey,Louie Lamour, McMurtry,McCarthy is one of my favorites . I didn't like The Road. I have read the End Times series by Tim Lahaye and Jerry Jenkins twice 13 books . Please excuse my writing I never had any ed. just kinda stumble along.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
