48 Laws of power

Very good book so far. Some may agree, some may not.

Revisiting a childhood classic. It holds up pretty well.

This is actually a reread for me of Tad Williams, Memory Sorrow and Thorn. I read the trilogy originally about a dozen years ago. I'm reading it again because he just released the first book of a sequel trilogy after all these years a couple months ago and I basically forgot most of the original trilogy.

The final installment in the Bill Hodges a.k.a. the Mr Mercedes trilogy.

It's fun to read a straightforward detective novel from King, gotten used to metaphysical horror, Lovecraftian openings of worlds and the psychosis of humanity in these contexts.

The latter is still present in these books

I want to get to this trilogy from him eventually...but there's a lot of novels of his I want to get to. The problem is I already have so much on my docket that it will be awhile till I get to them.

Last of the Mohicans

Pretty good but difficult to read at times due to being written almost 200 years ago.

Good topic,

I'm mostly reading and studying "The WORD" Study Bible, Copyright 1990 by Harrison House, Inc., using Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible and the "Atlas of the Bible and Christianity" as study helps.

I have dusted off and picked up a couple of books in recent weeks, i.e. "Biblical Hebrew Step by Step" Volume 1 Second Edition by Menaheim Mansoor and "Reaching Muslims for Christ" by William J. Saal.

However, a majority of my time lately is invested in hearing the Audio Bible day and night, and I'm currently in the Book of Jeremiah (https://www.biblestudytools.com/audi.../kjv/jeremiah/)

Also attending live Bible studies and Church fellowship through Verse By Verse Ministry International, currently in the Book of Romans (http://www.versebyverseministry.org/)

I encourage anyone to listen to the messages from the Bible at that site, or if anyone is interested and would like to visit ^^

I just finished The Left Hand of Darkness. It was a really great read.

I'm stagnant on Dune... Don't like the writing style at all.. Halfway through the book, now what?? Arghh, I hate that feeling.

Been reading for a month too.. Usually I read fast and finish 600pg books in 2-3 weeks.. With Dune, I'm a month in, only halfway through the book. Looks like it's time to dump it
