Just finished the Seven Pillars of Wisdom by TE Lawrence. I saw the movie ages ago, and was curious about the book when I ran across it at Powell's in Portland. The book is 10 times better than the film. What is most disturbing are the images of the Arabs, and how it looks like they haven't changed an iota since 1918 - still shooting in the air and acting like wild men. I think they will get a regime in Libya they deserve, and the farther we are away from them, the better.

"Probably More Than You Want to Know About the Fishes of the Pacific Coast."
by Milton Love

Milton Love is a very funny guy. Professor at UC Santa Barbara and recognized as one of the foremost experts on fish of the Pacific Coast.

Informative and one of the funniest books I have ever read.

And if you substitute "American" for "Turk" it's like reading today's newspaper.

Toys, by James Patterson. Best seller, got it in my Christmas stocking. Completely stupid worthless total crap. I guess if Patterson puts his name on it, everyone buys it, because its not because of content. How low have we sunk if this is on the best seller list?

My last read climbing book was Bernadette McDonald's "Freedom climbers". The one before "Freedom climbers" was a spot-rereading of Lynn Hill's "Climbing Free".

I have recently read "Chasing the sun. The epic story of the star that gives us life." Richard Cohen.

I have read Cormac McCarty's "Blood Meridian" two times before and have been spot-rereading it lately.

All four books highly recommended.

The next book will possibly be Umberto Eco's "The Prague cementry".

I have never read "The Da Vinci Code".

I pick up a Faulkner every year or so to have my mind blown. Right now it's Go Down Moses.
Recently finished a biography of Bradford Washburn, it was good. Got a Kindle recently too, first book on it is Seven Years in Tibet. Yeah, I mostly read the old stuff.
