Looks good piggie.

How many of us go to the public library?  How many would rather go to a book store and buy the book?   How many of us have kindles, etc??   

 Our library lets you download books and it's wonderful!!!

i either buy them or download them.  our library is in a bad part of town and sadly i do not feel safe going in and out of it.  plus, sometimes i read two or three books at a time and don't always finish in the 2 week checkout time and i hate making trips down there.

Right now I'm reading The Inner Circle by Brad Meltzer but I also intend to read a couple I haven't got around to yet. Odd Apocalypse by Dean Koontz and 11/22/63 by Stephen King.

I like to go to the library and randomly pull a couple of books. I call it literature roulette. Sometimes I can't get through them and sometimes I find real gems.

I just went to a $2-a-bag book sale a couple weeks ago at the Fort Smith Public Library.
I stuffed 18 books into one bag, and 11 of them were hardbacks!
I got some Stephen King and Dean Koontz that I'm keeping, and a few Janette Oke and Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins that I'm donating to our church library.

Here is the list of books I have read already this summer:
http://depriest-mpu.blogspot.com/p/what-has-russ-been-reading.html

This page will give you some recommendations for indie authors that deserve a look.  Most of the first novels or books in the series here are free at Smashwords:

In case you can't tell, I read a lot.

I just finished reading Run! By Dean Karnazes.   All I can say is WOW!  What a great inspiration he is.  Glad I took the advice of a friend to read it.   

A new book of his called "The Legend of Marathon: Retracing the Ancient Battle and Epic Run that Inspired the greatest foot race"  looks to be good.   I don't think it is going to be released until March though.

I need to read "50 Marathons in 50 Days" for tips to help with endurance.

I never got to inferno this summer.  I read sassy belles, whistling Dixie in a nor'easter and Yankee Doodle Dixie.  Read a few by jennifer weiner. I really like her stuff.

This is my local library right now. http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2013/06/buildings/lbd/growing-room-st-louis-public-librarys-grand-central-renovation/#_

Right now, my wife and I have decided to go Faulkner for a while. Last year we re-Hemingway-ed. Now it's time for Faulkner. I will start with Absalom Absalom, then to As I Lay Dying.

My wife worked through college (Ole Miss) at the historic home of William Faulkner. And, I would recommend that everyone listen or read his Nobel Prize speech, it is great.

I'll read it.     The Quiet Power.    I prefer quiet oddly...although I need to read more And post less.  :)

We listen too much to the telephone and we listen too little to nature. The wind is one of my sounds. A lonely sound, perhaps, but soothing. Everybody should have his personal sounds to listen for—sounds that will make him exhilarated and alive, or quiet and calm... As a matter of fact, one of the greatest sounds of them all—and to me it is a sound—is utter, complete silence.  ~André Kostelanetz

She has introverts nailed.  Too many think that being introverted means something far different than what it really is.  That book should be reading for everyone. 

We as a society need to stop putting all stock in extroverts by automatically ascribing them as leaders, even when they're incompetent, clueless, etc.  Gregariousness does not equal leadership.  There is much to the quiet leader.

tb, i am on the third book of a series by lisa patton.  it is partially set in memphis.  the first one was whistling dixie in a nor'easter.  the second was yankee doodle dixie and this last one is southern as a second language.  you would probably enjoy them with them being set in your neck of the woods.

Have you ever read any books by Emily Nicholson?    I only have heard of her Counting on Love books and don't know anything about her writings other than apparently she writes Romance Novels?
