I just received a set of the National Geographic Magazines on DVD (ALL 125 years of them) 1887-2012. New in the Sealed Box
Cost $17.76 including shipping !!!==(An Ebay Buy)
 
As a kid I spent hours going thru issue after issue especially the World War II and Korean War issues that had a great deal of interest to me. I had a big box full of the maps collected from the various issues that were always being 'studied' when a radio program or news story mentioned some location.
  Anyway, I now can insert a DVD and thumb thru the December 1943 issue- should I care to, not only to review the articles, but almost as interesting are the ads of the day. encouraging rationing and buying War Bonds...and of course SPAM in it's original context !
 
This is a reference set I plan to enjoy for a very long time.

I'm re-reading the King and Maxwell series by David Baldacci. I read it before, but it was immediately after surgery when I was taking a lot of narcotics, so I'm a little hazy on the details.

John Wayne...The Life and Legend by Scott Eyman. I found out that John Wayne was just a part of Duke Morrison. For instance...he never legally changed his name to John Wayne.

from the library, a new novel, Jean Kwok's Mambo in Chinatown, and two cookbooks, Fried and True, and Japanese Soul Food: Ramen,Tonkatsu, and Tempura.  This Fried and True looks interesting, the two authors traveled around the country and supposedly these are recipes from roadfood fried chicken places, and some of their sides. I can't tell if the restaurants really gave out their recipes, or these are copycats.

I know, and I can't wait to get to them! I've had to ration myself, though...if I read more than three of them in a row I start looking at ordinary household objects and plotting ways they could be used to commit murder.
 
Since then, I read [url=https://www.goodreads.com...rwood?from_search=true]Catherwood[/url], by Marly Youmans (very interesting until 2/3-3/4 in, and then fell apart), and now I'm almost done with [url=https://www.goodreads.com...-gentleman-s-hour?ac=1]The Gentlemen's Hour[/url], #2 in the Boone Daniels series by Don Winslow. I'm really liking this series, too, but in a completely different way.
 
Edit:
OK, I'll bite. Why does the URL code no longer work?

Just read Grand Forks by Marilyn Hagerty. She's the food reviewer for the Grand Forks, NE newspaper that took the national spotlight after her glowing review of Olive Garden went viral.
 
Bourdain wrote the foreward. It's a fun read, since she is so sincere and tries to point out nice things, even when you realize the place is mediocre at best. Plus, she reviews Taco Bell and it's hilarious.

Here is a wonderfully legible, user friendly, free electronic copy of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals".  
 
It is a very easy read.
 
Regardless of one's political persuasion it lends profound insight and understanding to current events.

Thanks for posting.  I checked it out against the copy on my dresser, and it's got it all.

I am currently reading Wilbur Smiths "Blue Horizon"  He is from Africa and writes historical fiction.  He has written over 30 novels and I believe I have read every one.

I just finished 1920 a "what if" about a war between Germany and the US in 1920, after a very short WW1 that Germany won and the US did not take part in.
 
Even though I'm interested in history, I did not realize that Germany had come close to winning in the first days of the war, and the the battle of the Marne was such a close thing. I knew that Wilson was sick at the end of his second term, but this book speculates that Wilson wins a 3rd term, and dies soon after the election.
 
It reads a lot like a Harry Turtledove book, but was written by a guy name Conroy. 
 
Writing this type of book must be fun.

Double double good, yes.  Don't you wish he would write more?  He makes Natchez available to everyone, and I'm so glad I visited there, as it makes his novels even better to read.  Much like our visit to New Iberia LA to see all those James Lee Burke places.

I just finished Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, and all I can say is WOW!! Once the story took off, it grabbed me and wouldn't let go, forced me to stay up way later than I wanted to, and by the time it was done it left my brain feeling like it had been in a blender. The last half of the book went down in one sitting, with enough twists and turns and surprises and me more than once saying right out loud, "No way!" and going back to read something over again. Just...wow.

The Intercept by author Dick Wolf. A story about an attempted terrorism plot in NY, from the man who is more famous for producing such TV shows as the Law and Order franchise, Miami Vice and Chicago Fire. So far, a good read.

Hi, I'm done reading another best seller of my favorite author, Mitch Albom.  I have been interested to read books that relate about life. "For One More Day" is another story about sentiments of life that I'm sure everyone will love to read. It may open our hearts and our minds that we could never change our  past and we must appreciate what we have and give our best to all the people we love.

Blueberry Pie Murder - Joanne Fluke. Sometimes I need a break from my spy/military reads. Plus there is food and recipes. And no they are not "chick" books!
