Read a wonderfully scary book I found in HAL's Osterdam's library by Philip Caputo called the 'Ghosts of Tsavo'. It's about lions that prowl the plains of Tsavo (Tsavo means Place of Slaughter)...they're known for their abnormally large size, their maneless males, and their taste for human prey. The fact that this book is a TRUE story about two lions that terrorized the Tsavo area of East Africa, killing abut 135-140 people in 1898 was just riveting. These lions were almost mythical in their cleverness. The writer, P. Caputo is a master at holding your a attention with the written word. I was scared witless after reading this book, but I after we got home I ordered it from Amazon to read it again. A glutton for punishment you might say!....
I've been reading the Dark Tower books by Stephen King. I'm on the "last" one, although he's published another one earlier this year. A friend of mine loves this series and wanted me to read it. Let's just say I'm not as enchanted as he is of the series. The main characters are great. A couple of the books are fair, a couple are good, and a couple just plain suck. None of the books are outstanding.
Bart Erhman is a [famous/notorious] (pick one) Biblical commentator. Much of the work was sponsored by National Geographic and they published an article in the magazine and did a TV special.
It is an extremely interesting early Gnostic work, condemned by the Church Father Bishop Iraneaus in the early centuries, but only recently rediscovered. Of course the Gnostics were declared heretics by the Council of Nicea which established the canon.
Those of you reading The Great Gatsby might be interested in The Double Bind by Chris Bohjalian. It has very strong ties to the Gatsby book .... to tell more would ruin the story!!
happy reading, everyone

Great read about a woman who is a fighter ďagainst special interests, liberal media, and cynical polticos to secure America's border.Ē Very interesting story of a courageous woman willing to go toe to toe with the president of the United States.
Welcome to CruiseMates....are you a happier lady now?
Fifty Shades gives a better picture of possiibilites and opportunities in an uninhibited relationship.
Much better than Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique in which she answered what makes you squeal in delight and she answered: great sex, good food & good loving. She talked about womens freedom in Feminie Mystique but she didn't knowwhat real freedom because she was still tied down inhibiitions created by a wedding ring and her Miss Percy Perfection I am clean as the driven snow lifestyle. As for me. Yes life is great. I do find that I have a fascination with silver bracelets and a real appreciation of great opportunities if I am open to new ideas.
