Barbara, let me know how you like Mark Steyn's book. I'm a big fan of his stuff on the web.

Several of my family members have read it and can't stop talking about how good & disturbing it is. Will let you know.

Wolf Hunting by Jane Lindskold - It is a science fiction book about humans, wolves, and other creatures that work together to stop some evil magic and doings.

The Dodge City Trail by Ralph Compton - Pretty much what the title states: a cattle drive north to Dodge City with the typical Indian issues, stampedes, bad weather, etc.

If you like The Dodge City Trail, you might like Mrs. Mike by Benedict and Nancy Freedman. It's an older book, but the authors "paint" great pictures in your head as you read. It would be especially apropos to read in the wintertime because of the winter segments. They've written other books, of which is Kathy Little Bird. This is another great read. The Search for Joyful is another of their works. All three are on my "keep" library shelves. Wonderful stories!!

I'm currently reading "Knowing God" by J.I. Packer for Sunday School class. Supposed to be reading Jimmy Carter's book about Palestein for book club but can't get copy at library and won't pay bookstore price for it! Also on second half of "Suite Francaise". Can't remeber spelling of author but it is a story about WWII German invasion of France. So far so good. Have several Nora Roberts books lying around to start soon. Just recently got into the Odd Thomas books by Dean Koontz. Very interesting and real page turners. Couldn't wait to see what would happen next in them! If you didn't guess I love to read. I'm the same way with books as others have stated here, have to hold them to appreciate them but do enjoy audio books when on long road trips.

Question Reading anything good right now?

I am just getting done reading "Good-bye To the Mermaids" A Childhood Lost in Hitler's Berlin. It is a true story by Karin Finell. I usually just read English mysteries but I heard them interviewing the author on the radio one day and it sounded very interesting. Excellent book! I haven't been so moved by a book before.
