Yesterday’s Book Haul from W. Walworth Harrison Library. #1 Lou Finney Lane, Greenville, TX: Really an interesting mix!
1. Fishing For Catfish by Keith B. Sutton
2. the backyard parables by Margaret Roach
3. America’s Secret War (non-fiction) by George Friedman
4. You can Farm by Joel Salatin
5. Founders – A novel of the coming collapse by James Wesley Rawles
6. The Man who was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton
7. Target Lancer by Max Allan Collins
#7 Is the 2nd book I have come across on the 50th year since JFK was killed. Stephen Hunter’s book “The Third Bullet” was outstanding. Of course I love all things “Joel Salatin”! G.K. Chesterton “The Apostle of Common Sense” is usually better in reinactments that you find on YouTube – he can be tedious to try – but I will give it another shot. #3 is first non-fiction pleasure book I have tried to read in a while. To go along with it I have Founders – I at least find these “survivalist” interesting. Personally, I do not want to survive if it gets really bad – I would rather be with the Lord anyway!
I finally did it – I am starting my Sudoku site: BigSudoku.wordpress.com. It will develop slowly but surely – “The Lord willing”
Were you there when they crucified my Lord? This song has really hit me hard this Easter season. I reminded my local church that we remember right where we were when traumatic events happen in our lives, especially if we were young. I just read another great book by Stephen Hunter – “The Third Bullet” (about JFK). When Nov 22 2013 arrives I can tell you exactly where I was 50 years ago. It was a Thursday and I was in the 5th grade and I had a wonderful teacher I had a crush on – Mrs. Russel. When principal Mr. Johnson made ‘that announcement’ all the little girls in my class started crying. I held it all together until Mrs. Russel started crying too and then I lost it!
I was a precocious child and I remember thinking there is no way Lee Harvey Oswald did this alone. Years later I still believe that and I have read a lot of books on snipers and spies and such. I understand that 2/3 of America no longer believes the Warren report. Which means most of us now believe our government – or a part of it – killed one of our own presidents. Stephen Hunter makes a lot of sense in his novel. I read mainly fiction. I have come to believe I find more truth in fiction – at least certain kinds of fiction. The author is free to say what he really believes – after all it is fiction, right!
There is a lot more true then can be proven!
