Dewey: The Small -Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron. It's about how a cat named Dewey got adopted by a small town library after they found him stuffed in their returned book slot and how through the course of his life "charmed" the town of Spencer, Iowa.

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.


My copy is on the way, if Beck dislikes it it must be good.

Almost finished with Machine of Death and as usual I read 2 or 3 books at the same time so I'm about 15 minutes away from finishing "A Power Governments Cannot Suppress" by Howard Zinn.

LOL somehow I missed you getting it. I had to limit myself to reading just a few stories at a time cause I didn't want to finish it too fast.

Finished a book about Harry Harlow called "Love at Goon Park." Pretty interesting look at love and affection and the research done by Professor Harlow.

I recently finished the book "The Art of the Steal" by Christopher Mason. Sorta interesting look at the Sotheby's - Christies auction house price fixing scandal.

Decision Points by "George W. Bush" (and whoever the ghostwriter is)

Only a chapter in, but it's good so far, surprisingly.

I'm reading Cold Winter Nights by Anne White. She writes local mystery books. It's all based in the real towns of Queensbury (where I live), Lake Luzerne (where I work part-time), Lake George and the fictional town of Emerald Point.

I'll bet that's fun reading a mystery about the area you live in.

Just finished "Longitude" by Dava Sobel; a short history of the John Harrison attempt to solve "the longitude problem" of ship navigation.

People keep recommending this book to me for some reason. I was thinking of getting a copy, but if it's only "sorta interesting" maybe I should pass?

I'd pass if I were you. Greedy rich people and price fixing is all.

Yeah, it's great. A couple of chapters ago our heroine was eating in the Glens Falls Hospital cafeteria, where I have a temp job. A couple of books ago she ate in a restaurant in Lake Luzerne that I've been going to for 30 years, and someone tried to kill her by pushing her in the the rapids of the Hudson River - it's very dangerous in Lake Luzerne, and very cold.
