    I've recently started reading via Kindle. Still like real books, but find this incredibly easy. I borrow books from the library to download to it.

    The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern Really enjoyed this book. Magic/fantasy, light reading.

    The Fault in Our Stars - John Green Was recommended by the young man I sat beside on the plane home from Montana. Thought provoking.

    The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown Read this one years ago, and LOVED it. The re-read was just as good.

    And because I can get them all from the library, I'm reading J D Robb's In Death series. I'm up to #9 (I think she's on #22?), and so far haven't guessed the end of one.

    I really want to read the Game of Thrones series, but I REALLY want him to finish them first (which appears to not be happening any time soon).

    My wife picked up a bunch of American Heritage books from the 60's at a yard sale. I'm really enjoying them. They are full of little known stories from American history.

    Unbroken. Picked it up yesterday and already half way through. It's well written IMO.

    I'm alternating between several books. During my "devotionals," I'm reading "The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up," by Marie Kondo. As far as life-changing, it truly is; it's not just about decluttering and organizing. It's an embrasure of a mind set; a shift in thinking and doing.

    At night, before bed, I'm reading "Limits of Power," by Elizabeth Moon. It's a sword and sorcery type fiction book that's part of a series that was first published in 1988. There are 10 books in the series, plus a couple of related short stories. "Limits of Power" is number 9 in the series.

    I just started a couple of other books that I read off and on; "How to Get Well," by Paavo Airola, and "Die Broke," by Stephan Pollan and Mark Levine.

    "How to Get Well" deals with our most common ailments and suggests alternative approaches to dealing with them; primarily food as medicine. That's no longer new, but he was on the cutting edge of that well before the modern movement. He also deals with vitamins and supplements, fasting, juicing (fruits and vegetables, not steroids), and so on.

    "Die Broke" is a four-part financial plan for radically changing your life. "Quit Today, Pay Cash, Don't Retire, Die Broke."

    Earlier this summer I read this book. The Forgotten Hero of My Lai: The Hugh Thompson Story by Trent Angers. If you can believe the facts in the book, this guy did the right thing but he paid a steep price for that. They even tried to bring him up on charges. Looking back 40+ years have shown what courage he had that awful day.

    An Ancient Peace (Peacekeeper 1) Tayna Huff - I have read 5 of her other books ....
    Lost Fleet Series - read the 1st one, but the rest of the series 1/4 way through book 2
    The Science Fiction Century
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
