Reading King's Everything is Eventual. I read Night Shift and loved all the little stories so I thought I'd give this one a go. I'm a few stories in. The Man In The Black Suit, is one of my favorite stories so far. It feels so creepy and eerie to me.

books! hooray for books!

i'm making a go at the decline and fall of the roman empire. i've read it about two thirds of the way through twice now, but i'm going get through all of it this time. it's not that it's even a hard set of books to read, gibbon wrote very readable stuff... but the style, it wears. it wears me down.

The Eagle And The Lion: The Tragedy Of American-Iranian Relations by James A Bill

Superb read thus far that was in fact a recommendation!

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Currently, reading "8 Essential Steps to Conflict Resolution" by D. Weeks.

Also, re-reading "Hammer's Slammers" by David Drake,  "Advanced Celtic Shamanism" by D.J. Conway, and the new "Eldar Codex" by Games Workshop.

A Case For Solomon by Tal McThenia and Margaret Dunbar Cutright.
It's a very intriguing story, one I'd never heard of, but similar to the story focused on in the movie Changeling.

In 1912 Louisiana, a four year old boy went missing as his family, extended family and friends were gathered at a swampy lake for days of camping and fishing.
Eight months later, a boy turned up in Mississippi after having been traveling with a wandering piano tuner.
After the family claimed the boy as their missing child, a woman in North Carolina claimed that the boy was actually her child who who'd been kidnapped.
Both families went to court, and once settled, custody was awarded to the Louisiana family.
Decades later, DNA proved which family it was that he actually did come from.

Currently I'm reading my 2013 World Almanac.  It's one of my favorite books because it has so much information about so many different topics.

I like reading up on astronomy, world history, sports history, and more.  And this book has a lot about these subjects.

the wind's twelve quarters, by ursula leguin. just a great collection, as comforting to pick up as visiting an old friend. which is what it basically is to me.

Now I'm reading U.S. History for Dummies.

The odd part of this book is that it doesn't have a great deal of information about the wars the U.S. has been involved with over the years.  I wish it had more to say about Vietnam, WW 1 and 2, and the Korean war.

Low Life: Lures And Snares Of Old New York by Luc Sante

He was consulted by Martin Scorsese for Gangs Of New York

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal.

Currently reading:

Assault On The Liberty: The True Story Of The Israeli Attack On An American Intelligence Ship by James M Ennes Jr

Heartwrenching read, especially the pages detailing the attack itself and its aftermath. Like witnessing a train wreck and absolutely being powerless to do anything about it.  I am hundred pages into this book.

I need to buy the BBC documentary DVD, Dead In The Water, as I hear it is equally fantastic.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal.

Almost finished JK Rowling's absolute beauty Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, done it in around three weeks, read it twice before but wanted to reacquaint myself with it.

Got a couple Goosebumps on the go and Atlas Shrugged, which is a work of genius, too.

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air and deep beneath the rolling waves, in labyrinths of coral caves, The echo of a distant tide comes willowing across the sand and everything is green and submarine...

You're neither. You're an errand boy, sent by grocery clerks, to collect a bill.
