Actually I am reading two books. I had just started reading The Once And Future King by T.H. White, one of the many publications on the Arthurian legend. My good man gave me two books for Christmas and I have just peeked into the smaller of the two. Our Endangered Values by Jimmy Carter. He also gave me State of Denial by Bob Woodward. Can hardly wait to get into that. Then my daughter arrived home yesterday with Jimmy Carter's latest and controversial book, Palestine: Peace or Apartheid. Can't wait to get into that either. I better dust the house quick as it may not get done for several weeks now. Yipee!

glad you're back MSC. now reading: "the Mediterranian: a portrait" by bradford, not fiction well written on the geography, oceanography, and cultures/history of the med.

next book you'd be interested in MSC: next am going to read John Steinbeck's "the works of King Arthur." after that, only one of his books left to read to complete all of his works.

Happy New Year.

Bonesetter's Daughter - Amy Tan I would like to know what you think of the latest Jimmy Carter book when you get to it, MSC.

Jimmy Carter should be hanged for treason.

and, he's the reason that north Korea has nuke bombs...remember Clinton outsourced foreign policy to Carter for that worthless agreement with North Korea.

during his four years, foreign policy was a complete mess and gave us the modern Iran, terrorist state, with a slow-speed war with them continuing to this day.
