If anyone else is here that loves to read books. I know reading is difficult for some of us....lol..But  I would think this thread would be good. Post up their book a quick review and what kind it is.(I.E. political,fiction,western,ect...) I will start.

I haven't finished it yet but I have thoroughly enjoyed "the shadow party" by David Horowitz (political)

very good book and explains a lot about what is going on politically with in the dems party. And the BIGGER picture of what is going on. David Horowitz was brought up as a radical leftist and is now shining some light on what their (leftist) plans are and how they are going about it.

I read a lot.

suspense novels- Just finished reading all of Randy Wayne Whites books about mystery with a Florida fish biologist (Doc Fords) who is an ex CIA op.  can put them down. 

Like history and like WW2-  Bodyguard of Lies and presently reading An Army at Dawn (about North African campaign) R. Atkinson(sp?).

Vintage hunting and fishing is great stuff.  Corey Fords works (Field and stream columns from the 1950-60).  Can't miss on Jim Corbett hunting tigers in India at turn or 1899.  Presently reading "I Always feel better in November" good read for southern gentleman.

I try to only buy one book ahead, I'm compulsive and once I start a book I MUST FINISH IT.

Bear,

Is that the Jim Corbet that was the boxer? He boxed around the turn of the century.

Not the fighter.

"Jim" Corbett (25 July 1875 Ė 19 April 1955) was an Indian-born British hunter, conservationist and naturalist, famous for slaying a large number of man-eating tigers and leopards in India.

He was gifted writer.  Every hunter should read:  Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1944), The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag (1948), and the Temple Tiger and More Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1954).  Iíve read all of them.  Most are out of print, but you can get them on e-bay.  He was very popular in the Ď50s and was a book-of-the-month club and New York Times author, so most libraries have his works.  Iíve even bought a few copies at library Book Sales for a $1.  But Iíve also paid $100+ for first editions on e-bay.

Bear I seem to go through different phases. I read all of Gresham's books about 6 years ago. Before I got on that kick I read most all of Louis L'Amour books and one series that was about the oregon trail. I am trying to find out the name of the series it was the BEST western I have ever read. I should know what they are tonight. The last 6 years or so I have been into biographies and true life, or history(true) and do it your self books. Some of these are 30 years in dog fighting(I know I will get flamed on this book but I like the history) Sonny Barger's book on the Hell's Angels (just because I knew some and met Sonny numerous times while in AZ) Pat Buchanan's book  The Death of the West , All of Bill O'reilly's books, and I am starting on one of Beck's also. I also have a lot of canning books, cheese making books, sausage books, ect....I am looking for a book on how to make the most out of your land, or how to get the most production per acre of land. Something along those lines.

Oh a must for anyone that like grillings and southwest flavors is anything from Mad Coyote Joe (The Senoran Cook) I got to build his house for him in phoenix (actually Cave Creek) He also had a cooking show their. here is a link to his books http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_0_11?url=search-alias%3Dst ripbooks&field-keywords=mad+coyote+joe&sprefix=mad+c oyote+

Oh I almost forgot about all the Dog books I have on training or Genetics and breeds along with history of breeds and breeding. A lot on American Bulldogs. What a BREED !!

james michener, james clavell, clive cussler and frank herbert's "dune" series get most of my reading attention. i also am a big fan of anything written by jack o'connor. there are many, many other assorted books and authors, but those are the ones i seem to keep coming back to.

also, i am working my way through an old late 1960s series from time/life titled "foods of the world," where they went all over the globe and gathered up the histories, traditions and representative recipes of every region imaginable (except, notably, from korea and afghanistan, as far as i can tell).

Fella's;

If you want to get into an addictive series, start reading W.E.B. Griffin.  Start with "The Lieutenants".  Bear, if ya do, we'll just kiss you goodby for about two years.  Although Griffin's books are fiction, it's obvious that Griffin has BTDT for some of it, and done meticulous research and interviewing for the remainder.

Oh, and if you want a good Sci-Fi action with authentic gun scenes and equipment, read Larry Corriea's "Monster Hunter International".  T'aint deep literature, but it is entertaining.

Or, read John Ringo's "Ghost".  And we'll say goodby while you find your personal limit's with that author.

YES! Bear, you have a great book. An Army at Dawn is an excellent book, and the follow-up of the trilogy, the Sicily/Italy campaign is serious reading.

The two parts that really stand out in that book are the Anzio Campaign ( my uncle, a medic was wounded there) and the Rapido river crossing....wow, gut wrenching stuff. I'm really looking forward to the third book, the European Campaign one. Very well written historical account.

Another great book I've read recently is Charlemaigne by Derek Wilson, an excellent and "lively" account of the Carolingian Empire....for those who are interested in Middle Age Europe. Great reading to learn about the everyday life during the times as well as details on what we, today, have much to be thankful for in our societal evolution as well as Western Culture. I highly recommend it. It's a short (200 pp) book but chock full of the details and history of what makes Western Culture the powerhouse it has become as well as providing an understanding of why it is important.

If you like medieval history, Louis L'Amour's last book Flower Drum Song is very good.  I also like "Below the Salt.

Like most of you I get hooked on authors and start reading them till they die or go sour (too much $$4 and books become a commodity. 16 of Randy Wayne White and he ran out of steam.  Same thing happened to Tom Clancy; Hunt for the red October was great and they started downhill from there.  I stopped after 4 of his.

Most of you could guess the Bible is the only thing I read a lot of.

Mark Of The Grizzly. Is a great read! First hand accounts of bear attacks by the victoms or first responders of bears killing people. It will give you a hole new out look on Griz and just what they are capible of. The man I replaced years ago as the tranny man at City Motors Bill Tanzinski (sp) was killed in Yellowstone and the account of his death and being eating is in there.

Bear, if you haven't read Clancy's Clear And Present Danger, you might want to give it a try.
