Just finished Indian Country by Kurt Schlicter, starting Wildfire tonight by the same. Several work related things. Been reading the LDS Pantry guide.

Just finished reading "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck. It was not yet required reading in school in the 50's as it was not yet considered a "classic" (I'm 76). Most impactful novel I've ever read and the writing itself is brilliant! Wish I'd read it years ago. Next read will be "Of Mice and Men" also by John Steinbeck. I'm hooked!

All of Jim Webb's novels bear reading, although you won't want to read "Fields of Fire" more than once. Like Eugene Sledge's "With the Old Breed" it will devastate you, being a first-hand look at the rawest edges of war. (Sledge was recommended to me by a real Marine, a veteran of Iwo Jima, as the only book which ever caught the reality of WW2 in the Pacific.) Lost Soldiers I have read through at least three times, maybe more. A mystery/adventure set in post-war Vietnam, with a happy ending. The anecdote about eating balut is priceless.

I'm currently enmeshed in the entire Raymond Chandler opus. He never gets stale, unlike so many of his imitators.

There's a new edition out of Fahrenheit 451. I'm no breathless devotee of Bradbury, but this is the full, original text. Worth it for the afterwords alone.

Started on Lavoy Finicum’s book last night. Kind of stiff writing style.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Yes I know the movie is out - I wanted to read it first.

A pandemic affects children as they enter puberty and kills 90% of them. The 10% left have extraordinary powers and must be kept in high security camps. It's the story of several children who escape.

Ugh...an important book to read but one that left me with a lot lower opinion of the man and US special forces after I read it.

Finally finished the series Arisen (greatest zombie series ever!!!!!!). The base is 14 books but has several offshoot books that need to be read in order. Glad it's finally over as the books took some time to get out - four years give or take (kind of why I like a series to be completed before starting but didn't anticipate it being this long).

Reading "Breaking Gods" - author DJ Molles who has some other nice Post-apocalyptic fiction series.

Finished N. C. Reed's "Hell Fire" last night. Number seven in his series. All of them are great story-telling of a PAW world. I regard them as the top of the list for holding my interest all the way through.

I'm pretty-much house-bound, so I read a lot. Amazon Prime and Kindle Unlimited allow a lot of low-cost or free books. Unfortunately, a lot of PAW fiction is highly improbable, poorly written and poorly edited.

Same here. No TV either. Haven't had one since 1977. The advent of e-readers has unleashed a torrent of self-published junk fiction of all genres, since to the cost and risk of publication are near zero, and professional editing isn't required. The "print-on-demand" tech that Amazon is using isn't helping, either.

The Saxon series by Bernhard Cornwell - story about how England was formed (historical fiction) - Uhtred Ragnar and his merry band of Danes and Saxons going Viking! Much hewing, hacking, pillaging and plunder.

Just started "Debunking Howard Zinn". New book, just out. We all knew he was a destroyAmericaFirst leftist, but OMG what a fraud! His Peoples' History is full of outright plagiarism, as well as stuff he just made up.

For a break from reality as needed, (which is often), been reading Dashiell Hammett. He may have become a drunken, drug-addled Commie in his later years, but he wrote some engaging pulp fiction while he was still semi-sane.

Non-Fiction book by Richard Preston [The Hot Zone author]. It's a new book by him also on Ebola.

CRISIS IN THE RED ZONE - The Story of the Deadliest Ebola Outbreak in History, and the outbreaks to come. About 75 pages in. So far a good read.

I currently on the second book of the Gears of War saga. Surprisingly well written. I'm really enjoying them. They are written from the standpoint of the grunt. My boy has been into the games since the first one came out. Would make a cool movie.

I watched "The Man in the High Castle" series and picked up the book. The author's name will not get past the language barrier here. It is different from the series by quite a bit, most characters are the same so far. Definitely worth a read.
