The Limits of Power by Andrew J. Bacevich.

Great read so far, very constructive criticism of today's America.

Right now I'm a few months behind, and I'm reading The Murderer Vine by Shepard Rifkin.

Nothing like a good detective book. I'm starting a Mystery Reading group through the library for the winter in my small town-first book up is Maltese Falcon. I thought we would start with a classic.

Dead Until Dark by Charlene Harris. First in a series of vampire mystery. A funny book-very light reading.

Have not read a book of this size in 10+ yrs - so I'll be at it awhile!
How are you finding it? I recall rather enjoying it, certainly not dry or boring history.

One of my favorites, absolutely hilarious.

I Just finished Black Elk Speaks, and now am starting Blood Struggle by Charles Wilkinson, both for school. Also re-reading The Conscious Use of Metaphor in Outward Bound.

...I've read some of his more well-known pieces (Wasteland, Murder In The Cathedral, Prufrock, Old Possum's, etc.) and just got my hands on a copy of T. S. Eliot's The Complete Poems And Plays...it's near the top of my must read pile...

Currently reading The 21st Annual Year's Best Science Fiction (2004)...edited by Gardner Dozois...

While waiting for CigarGal's next novel---!

...I'm rereading Gram's (RIP) second book, "Montana Treasure: Doctor O.A. Kenck, His Life and Times". Jeeez, I must still have something like 400 of these in the guest room!

Plus I picked up my first ERB John Carter series paperback this weekend... looks like fun!

I always have 3 or 4 books started and stashed around the house that I can pick up and start reading anytime.

I've read these before, but right now it's:

Great Expectations - Stashed in the garage/winter cigar haven

I Killed Hemingway - Stashed on the nightstand

The Annotated Legends (Dragonlance) - Stashed beside the recliner

I seem to be in a fiction mood lately, but it's all good if it get's your mind moving.

It's about a guy claiming Hemingway was actually a hack that stole his entire persona, including his writing style, from him.

It's not a bad choice of fiction to read when the weather gets cold since a lot of the story takes place in Key West.
