This is a good time to read Never by Ken Follett.

Wow, that was long.. Never was one book I couldn't wait to finish.  I like the multi characters, multi settings, but gagged on some of the statements that were underhanded in.

 

One you might like is One Second After by Forstchen.

I just finished "The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August" by Claire North. Not exactly sure how to describe it. Kind of a thriller, but includes recurring reincarnation of the main character and several others. I enjoyed it.

I want to read it again :)

I usually have a book I read on my commute to work, a book that I read before bed, and a long-term book that I'll read some on weekends or whenever the mood strikes.

 

Currently reading "12 Rules for Life". And no, I'm not some neo nazi alt righter or anything, I just thought the book might be able to help me to provide essay writing service for one of my clients (yep, I'm college writer).

I'm re-reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It's my favorite book of all time, hands down. Funny, interesting, easy to follow yet complex enough to tease the mind.

I've read the book twice and watched the TV series twice. LOVE IT!

It's a great reading!

For me, any book is a source that carries certain knowledge and valuable information. And it's a pity that there is not always time for this. Due to the irrational use of time and the habit of putting off everything to the latter, I often accumulate a lot of tasks. Cope with which on my own is simply not realistic. Therefore, in such cases, I use proofreader uk. It allows me to complete all my tasks on time and even get good grades.

The other day I suffered through American Fix.

The author blames everyone for his addiction except for his dealer. Besides him being dishonest to the doctor about needing the drugs, he then visits other places to get more pills. He blames the pharmaceutical industry for developing a pill that can be crushed that allows the user to have a quicker and more intense high. Claims discrimination because companies won't hire addicts and wants reparations and free healthcare. Rather than owning his addiction,  he claims addiction to be the same as someone having cancer or diabetes.

 

Victimhood is another addiction that he has.

Night Comes to the Cumberlands. I wish that I would have read it long ago.

Local to me, there are two HPB stores.... I go there ~ once a week. They do ship, so you can order online. They also have lots of CDs and LPs, some new, most are used.

I went to HPB yesterday and scored a Delbert McClinton to add to the collection along with a Dr. John, a Rolling Stones, and a few others. 

 

The book seems to shoot straight, like it or not. Being born after the book's release and ~ 100 miles away, I have been insulated from what the book reports, except for the blanketed stigma. Combining the landscape, mindset, business practices and time period, it was the perfect storm which had devastating results.

A Confederacy of Dunces - I wish someone had told me how funny this book is a long time ago.

Thanks to Forbrukslån på dagen, I’ve gotten multiple loans here when no one else will work with me. This is a great place when you need extra money.

freinse, it's one of my all-time favorite books. Several attempts have been made to movie the book but have failed. I have ideas but not the money, lol.
