    Somehow I have found myself in a place where I read books out loud to my wife. We are currently most of the way through Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. I find reading out loud to be a slower process than reading to myself and this book is even slower because it is dialogue heavy and the the characters use olde tyme English but we are both loving the story.

    Yeah very different from the movie but surprisingly good. The book also had some short stories in them haven't read them yet.

    It's the closest to Vincent Price's The Last Man on Earth, FWIW.

    Dr. Ben Carson’s One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future along with co-writer Mrs. Candy Carson

    In the book, he spoke frankly on such issues as debt, welfare, gay marriage, racism, religious bigotry, spirituality and Christianity. He quoted a lot of biblical scriptures

    Very different in some ways from the way I was previously use to how Dracula was portrayed in movies and comic books.

    This is the first time I've read it too. It's been years since I've read an "old" book, but this doesn't feel old. It must've been way ahead of it's time. I'm enjoying it.

    Senator Elizabeth Warren wrote a book called A Fighting Chance, which I have been reading. She talked about banks, bailouts, bankruptcy laws and social issues. She viewed the banks as the enemy of the middle class Americans.

    Unfortunately, her perspective has proved too liberal for me to appreciate the book.

    Recently, i read a book called Going Rogue: An American Life by Governor Sarah Palin. Damn it's so long, but not long as Hillary Clinton's book "Living History". Sarah Palin really talked a lot about her faith in her book.

    Rereading A Crown for Cold Silver. I read it a long time ago, but the other two books in the trilogy are now on my shelves, so time to dive back in!

    A massacre is a good topic for a book!^

    I have been doing so much reading. The last book I picked up was Peter Pan, but I am reading tons more than that at the moment. I hope this thread can focus my energy in the right area.

She gets the chance to explain and rationalize herself, and I think it is an invaluable resource that she uses quite effectively.

    I found it a little tough at first.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.
