I had to give Spider Bones back to the library before I finished it. I'll get it back and finish it, but when?!

All of the library copies are out.

Now I'm reading Mary Higgins Clark's newest one - The Shadow of your Smile.

I got a book about Dorothea Lange (1895-1965) and her photography but I haven't started it yet. I wish the print wasn't so small, or maybe I'm just getting old. One of her famous photographs. The title is "Migrant Mother" and was taken in 1936.

Reading Frontsoldaten for my history class. It's all about the common German solider in WW2. It's actually a fantastic book.

YAY for cjhtwo!! You got your book back and it took only a month.

I've been reading the book "With Amusement for All: A history of American Popular Culture since 1830" by LeRoy Ashby.

Sometimes a bit dry but always insightful and usually very entertaining -
Such as the information about the 1952 movie "High Noon." (To quote the book.) "The script writer, Carl Foreman, specifically intended the film to be a criticism of HUAC and of Hollywood for knuckling under to it."

Also John Wayne hated the movie "High Noon" because Marshall Will Kane (Gary Cooper) smashed the Marshall's badge in the ground, Wayne called it "the most un-American thing I've seen in my whole life." LOL LOL Them Hollywood conservatives sure can be sensitive!

I just finished a book about the 1968 sinking of the submarine USS Scorpion.
It was sunk by a Russian sub-chaser helicopter in retaliation for what the Russians thought was a deliberate sinking of one of their subs near Hawaii by an American sub.

The US Navy covered up the Russian attack to prevent public outrage and the possibility of WWlll. The public was already mad about the Korean capture of the USS Pueblo. The spy John Walker is responsible for the knowledge that allowed both events to happen.

Started Machine of Death: A Collection of Stories about People Who Know How They Will Die the other day and I really like it so far!

I was thinking about buying it when I heard about it, but I didn't actually order it until that huckster Glenn Beck complained about it because not only is it an example of our so-called "Culture of Death", but also because it reached #1 on the Amazon best-seller list before his book did.
