I came across a box of discarded books, and found this gem. It has been awhile since I got down with some Percy.

I'm not much of a book reader but I was given a copy of Teddy Atlas's book from my brother and I fully intend to read it.

I found "Executive Orders" by Tom Clancy kicking around my closet. It's a book with a lot of potential thus far but for f*ck's sake, Clancy's at his best when he doesn't use the first 200 pages as exposition. NOBODY wants to read that much introductory material. I can only read it in small doses because despite the fact that's it's interesting as hell, the book just doesn't flow whatsoever. I loved "Red October," "Red Storm Rising," etc., but this book is killing me now. I want to know what happens next but I don't want to wade through 40 pages of fluff to find it.

Umm, gathering by the inside cover, "Debt of Honor" at least was before it. I haven't read it, at least read it so long ago I remember nothing about it. So far it seems like a fairly standalone book. I'm not too lost by anything.

Well I guess if your a fan of Clancy.. youll finish it.

Usually, I finish everything but that just cause I read alot..

Ill just rush thru it as fast as I can, because I feel like if I start a novel, I just HAVE to finish...

Read this only as one of those "junior classics" type of books a long time ago so I'm starting the real version now. Really loved this story growing up. Been reading a lot of childhood favorites because I cleaned out the basement and found/organized these books. Just in the last week I read, Through the Looking Glass, Tom Sawyer, little bit of Enid Blyton, and all of them remain as great as ever. Tom Sawyer is easily the greatest childhood book for any young boy imo.

It's a very interesting read so far. In fact, I find that what the most revealing part of the Bible is that personally, I agree with quite a lot of what Jesus says, in terms of what you should and shouldn't do, but disagree with whether I should worship a God or not. A lot of things he says makes sense, but I have trouble recognising the guy up there.

Plus, I find it very refreshing to finally see the stories which I've heard so much about (the flood, Joseph as ruler of Egypt, Abraham, Jesus's birth, parables, healings and death) written as they were, not embellished or filled out with length conversations. I've read Genesis, and on the advice of my friends skipped straight to the New Testament. I've finished Mathew, Mark and Luke, and am halfway through John.

the old testament is most relevant part.. you gotta at least read Psalms, Proverbs, Solomon, & Job.... some deep messages in those books

I think the way he's doing it is okay. He can come back to the Old Testament and read the books you mentioned without thinking that he has to tackle Hebrew Law and all the "begat stuff" to get through it. A lot of people who try to read the Bible from beginning to end never get through the Old Testament.
