Being a former medic in a MASH unit, I will have to check that one out.

Jakwi, I checked our local library catalog and neither the title Mass Casualties or the author shows up. Did you buy this book or get it from your library? We don't have any bookstores in our town so if it is one you purchased, I will have to wait until we go to a bigger city and look there.

I'm reading two books right now.

Roads Less Traveled by Catherine Watson
This is a collection of travel essays done by my favorite travel writer. I really love the "armchair vacations" I get when reading her essays.

The Bible by God
I've decided to read the Bible cover to cover. I've started with the New Testament because I really need it's message of hope right now. When finished with the New Testament I will start on the Old.

We are in a pretty large city and our library does not have the book.

I was the first one that checked it out from our local library. It should be coming out from your library soon. Still a few former medics around. How things have changed from when I was in service.

I just finished reading On the right path the lastest in the Home to Heather Creek series from Guideposts books.

They hold my attention I can't wait till the next one comes. The story is about a couple in their 60ties Bob and Charlotte Stevenson, who live on a farm in Neb. Life takes a tragic change for them when their only daughter dies and three Grandchildren come to live with them on the Neb farm after living in San Daigo CA.

I've been reading a pretty good book on WWll. it's by Jeff Schaara called the Steel Wave, it's the secon book of a trilogy.

it's called a novel, and would probably be found in the fiction area but it's fiction based on research of real people and real events. it's all based on interview's, diary's, letters....

the first book was on North Africa, this second is on the build up and then D Day invasion of France. follows Ike, Churchill, Rommell, Patton and several of the soldiers that took part in D Day. the true story of one of the paratroopers and the night time jump and how they landed off their target and in a body of water loaded down with gear and machine gun fire over their heads is ... chilling, scarey, incredible.... any of those or all of them.

if you like history, might think about this one.

Black Hills by Nora Roberts


This is one of those "I can't put it down books" And the time is not right to be so engrossed in a book! And it's a BIG book, the hardback version which I'm reading has 472 pages
But, darn, it's a good one!!!!

Ready to start reading BLESSINGS, the last book in the Sommerfield Trilogy by Kim Vogel Sawyer. This series is about 3 contemporary women who seek a home and acceptance among a Kansas Mennonite Community.
