"Life" by Keith Richards. Why this guy is still alive is beyond me. The song writing part was the best.

Deer Hunting with Jesus: Dispatches from America's Class War by Joe Bageants
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
Quick and good read.
Gone For Soldiers by Jeff Shaara. Good read about the Mexican War 1846-1848. Books centers on the exploits of Winfield Scott and Robert E. Lee. Very well writen about a much overlooked part of the history of the USA, Texas and Mexico in the time before the American Civil War.
Just reread The Cuckoo's Egg, Clifford Stoll...within 48 hours...same as the first time. It's that kind of book. A true story of computer infiltration and hacking before either was heard of and neither was illegal.
by me! The collected works of Edna St. Vincent Millay- Her opening poem, Renascence is the most beautiful thing I've ever read.

last reads. Have a pattern going.
Insomnia: Stephen King. I forced myself to finish this one. It went on and on and on and on.....
Amsterdam: Ian McEwan: Curiously dark humor read
The Shining: Stephen King. Attempted years ago and couldn't get into it. This time over I really dug. Watched the movie afterwards and I may stop doing that. It's a let down. I've seen it a number of times but after 800 pages of a 2 hours movie, it's like Nicholson couldn't wait to kill his family.
The Innocent: Ian mcEwan. Good book. reminded me of the Spy Who Came In from the Cold which was a great book.
The Stand: Stephen King. Good book till the ending. I hate to say it. Kings a humanist and goodness always seems to prevail in his stories. I find a majority of of his books totally reference Tolkien.
Having just finished two very tough Master's Degree courses with Penn State last week, I thought I was pretty much 'read out'. Besides, I really wanted to get out on Hilda and Heidi. But after the winter respite, I knew I needed to brush up on my riding skills. Out came David Hough, Keith Code, Jerry Palladino, and Lee Parks. Also read a great series on Riding Skills at Sport Rider magazine.

Paul Allen's memoir, "Idea Man."
The Corrections: Jonathan Franzen
This book is so good I decided to read it again. Franzen does such a great job with his characters you could swear the book was written about your family at times.
