I would love to read more of them, but I really don't want more books in my life right now.
That may be the first time that I've ever thought that.
Sacred Acre the Ed Thomas story
I no longer read fiction and prefer well-written non-fiction.
My latest read:
The Shooting Salvationist: J. Frank Norris and the Murder Trial that Captivated America
Read the reviews. Best story I never heard about until I tore through the book.
The Shooting Salvationist: J. Frank Norris and the Murder Trial that Captivated America: David R. Stokes, Bob Schieffer: 9781586421861: Amazon.com: Books
For fantasy, Robin Hobb, and Lois McMaster Bujold are good. I thought the Sharing Knife series was very good by Bujold recently but almost all her books are good and relaxing. The Vorkosigan books, you should take her advice on where to start and finish. Robin Hobb, I didn't care for the Soldier's son series but the rest of her books are good. Generally, I enjoy reading Dickens. I also enjoy the English writer, A.S. Byatt. I have enjoyed Sherri Tepper's writing in Sci. Fi. You might not like her if you are conservative. But if you enjoy getting angry, no one can make conservatives more angry than Sherri Tepper. I have read almost all of Phillip Dick's books. I like some of Tim Power's potboilers. A.A. Attanasio has written some outstanding books which are always interesting to me anyway.
The book I've most enjoyed lately though is "Brave Dragons" by Jim Yardley. It's a really interesting look at professional basketball in China.
Another book for the "not in your genre" category:
A Walk In The Woods by Bill Bryson
It's my favorite book. Bryson grew up in Des Moines. The book is about hiking the Appalachian Trail with a fat, incompetent high school buddy. It's hilarious and interesting.
I live out here in Lakota country. I was amazed by this book which I read for a class, but will go down as an all time mind-bender true story. Neither Wolf Nor Dog, by Kent Nerbern
