Just read Wild by Cheryl Strayer. This is a wonderful book, the true story of the author's decision to hike the Pacific Crest Trail by herself from the Mojave Desert to Washington state with no practical back packing experience when she was at the age of 26. She was lost before she even started the journey and found herself along the way. This is a tale of courage, regrets and strength and is one of the best books I've read in a very long time.

Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. I'm not a fan of hers but this book is interesting. A novel based on a true event.

Star Wars "Dawn ofthe Jedi"
Star Wars, "Golden age of the Sith"

...and an excellent book which shouldn't be available to the general public, though I've obtained it. While I won't mention it out of respect to the powers that be, I am always working on "Morals and Dogma (of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry", by the enigmatic Albert Pike. I've only been able to pierce a fraction of it's depth in the past 7 years that I've had my own copy of it.

Really interested in World War 1-era Germany, and the politcial and social conditions that led to the war. Will prolly get a book on it soon. I am dying to read, "Darth Revan", and "Red Harvest" as well.

I was reading a great book on String and M-theory entitled, "Super-Strings", but have been (sadly) separated from it.

As a writer, I enjoy studying how languages evolved, so I'm all for the classics. Many are available for free on my Kindle courtesy of Project Gutenberg, but for the really important stuff, I buy a physical copy. Most of my "real" books come from the Norton Critical Edition series because of its excellent selection of supporting material.

I'm almost done with a very unconventional translation of Le Morte D'Arthur, Sir Thomas Malory's collection of King Arthur tales. Depending on how you look at it, Sir Thomas wrote it in either late Middle English or early Modern English. This edition's translator, Stephen Shepherd, modernized the grammar but left the original spelling intact. It's an interesting mix of old and new:

"And than Sir Marhalte avysed Sir Trystrames, and seyde thus: 'Yonge knyght, Sir Trystrams, what doste thou here? Me sore repentys of thy corrayge, for wete thou well, I have been assayede with many noble knyghtes, and the beste knyghts of this londe have bene assayed of myne hondys.'"

The Unicorn by Iris Murdoch
Also before that her novel< The Sea, The Sea

Not easy reads but she explores philosophical themes, keep an Oxford Dictionary handy, if you're an American you'll need it!

He didn't like the Call of the Wild, who doesn't like that book? And he didn't like Tom Sawyer (assigned) The only books he's liked were the Hunger Games series so I give up. He's going to have to read the Diary of Ann Frank next (assigned) so that should be fun. :-[ but I know there must be lots of imitation HG type books. I tried on Amazon to find them but nothing really matched. I'll look up Terry Pratchett.
