Read "After the Falls" by Catherine Gildiner, a bio of her teen and college years and a great read. It's the sequel to her first book "Too Close to the Falls" which I want to get but it's out of print.

Minneapolis stripper.. the finest kind.

I'm reading the first Game of Thrones book, and probably will be for another year. It moves pretty slow.

Read the Shirley MaClaine book "I'm Over Al That..." and wasn't impressed, I finished it but thankfully it was a short book. She's written 12 or 13 books and this is the only one I've read.

Late last night I finished "Fire on the Horizon" by John Conrad and Tom Shroder.

It's about the Macondo Well site and the explosions and fire on it's drilling rig, Deepwater Horizon, in the Gulf of Mexico in April of 2010.

A few days ago I finished "Look Me in the Eye" by John E. Robinson. It's about him having Aspergers syndrome, a great story and worth a read.

"Too Close to the Falls" by Catherine Gildiner wasn't out of print after all so I bought a copy and finished it this morning. What an interesting childhood she had.

I'm presently reading "One Hell of a Gamble: Khrushchev, Castro, and Kennedy, 1958-1964: The Secret History of the Cuban Missile Crisis" by Aleksandr Fursenko. More detailed than I wanted to read but it is interesting, and as anyone who read the JFK book I recommended can tell you there was a lot of back-channel negotiations. There's a 50th anniversary special on PBS this coming Tuesday night. http://www.pbs.org/about/news/archive/2012/cuban-missile-crisis/

Forgot to post this book "Coop, A Family, A Farm and the Pursuit of One Good Egg" by Michael Perry. I think I read it in June or July.

I read that at one point last year or the year before. Interesting read.

Finished Steve Martins autobiography "Born Standing Up."

Steve started out selling Walt Disney brochures for 25 cents, his commission was 2 cents but he got in free at the Calif. Disneyland. His spare time was spent in their magic stores and talking to old vaudeville people. He was 10 years old at the time, kids today will not have that chance.

Martin studied philosophy and poetry in college and considered being a teacher.

I'm currently readying Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. So far, I have to say that it's...interesting.

I want to read this and was going to download it to my Kindle but saw the paperback version is actually 2 dollars cheaper. That makes me want to NOT buy it because that's just stupid.

Cindy, I think you'll really like the book, and Robinson has written another book also, so has his half brother A. Burroughs.

Finished the 1980 autobiography of Gloria Swanson "Swanson by Swanson" the 1920's movie star. She was very intelligent. Living in NYC she had a radio show as well as a TV show not to mention several business deals.

Most of us will know her as Norma Desmond in the movie "Sunset Boulevard" but she was also on The Beverly Hillbillies and the Carol Burnett Show.
