Now that's a Trip!
I would imagine that it will be warm in Australia when you go in 3 months.
Wow, you are going to have so much fun.
Have you ever seen the TV show, Kath and Kim?
I totally love that show...but it's my only point of reference for Australia.

I listen to a lot of books on tape and have discovered the series of books by Jan Karon. I believe the first starts with At Home In Mitford. Its very laid back and you get to know all the characters.

and i'll say this.. the first part wasn't to bad but boy the middle is BORING, i've lost all interest in this book.... and yet I keep reading, out of stubborness I guess, started it, i'm going to finish it.

Okie you have stamina.

I, for years, read techincal books, and books like War and Peace........and books with spies and espionage and murder..............and every book I could get ahold of that was about the Civil War.........I am facinated with the Civil War.............but.....that took concentration...that the computer stole from me.........

Then, I believe I got tired of ''thinking'' so much...and now I go for the ''fun'' of ''people'' and their little relationships.....stuff as irrelevant as my own life.........''soapy''.

I envy your fortitude, Okie.

If any of you can find a copy, maybe on Amazon, read the story of
BENNY BINION. I know he was a gambler from Texas, went to L.A.
& bought a hotel/casino. His life sotry is soooo interesting!

WOW! .....just checked Amazon, so if you can find a copy from someone, borrow it!

I've got an entire shelf of Civil War Books, and Revolution era books one of my favorites is a book written by one of Grant's top aides, not only is it informative but it's interesting the contrast in styles of writing from then to now.

But this book i'm reading now is a fictional book, it's the second book of a 3 part series, I read the first book last winter, and it was really good. it had a lot of history in it but it had plenty of war, swords, spears, horses, camels, limbs being chopped off, blood.... now book two has taken off in a discussion of Muslims, and various Christian religious belief's, political intrigue... I read the reviews on Amazon and this is what everyone said, but they also said book three was as good as book 1 was, but you wouldn't know what was going on in book 3 if you didn't read book 2... so here I am stuck wading thru book 2 about half way to the end hoping it will pick up the pace anytime now.

Right now I am reading Traveling Light by Max Lucado. It is WONDERFUL! It is based on Psalms 23.

I just finished Found by Karen Kingsbury, another author who I think is great. Found is the third in a series of five books that were spun off from a previous five book series. I love it when I keep reading about the same people.

Now that I am through with school though, I find myself enjoying reading for pleasure so much that I have to make myself turn off the light at night and go to sleep! I probably have a stack of twenty or more books stacked up just waiting for me to get them.

Books on Tape (or CD)

Usually listen to mysteries on the road, as they keep my attention and make the 45+ minute drive a little more bearable. Right now I'm in the middle of "The Last Juror" by John Grisham. It is very captivating and the man who reads it does a really great job of vocalizing the varying southern accents that it's almost like listening to a movie!

Another one down

Just finished Brave New World by Huxley. Now it's on to a very short one... Common Sense by Thomas Paine. After that it's Healing Our World In an Age of Aggression by Mary J. Ruwart. This one should be a difficult read. After this one, it's back to the lighter stuff.
