    The Beggar Queen by Lloyd Alexander. The final book in the Westmark trilogy and just as fantastic as the other two. If I was a tv/film creator, I would make it my life's work to adapt all of Lloyd Alexander's work. I can't get enough of his work.

    Yeah all I've been seeing is Rhythm of War related videos recently. I'll probably give in one day but I don't plan on reading any of the Stormlight Archive until Sanderson's finished it though (or at least finished the first 5 books), so I'm avoiding watching any of them. Elantris will be the next Sanderson book I read, and even though it will have a sequel(s), it's been sitting on my shelf for ages just waiting to be read.

    John Wesley Hardin's autobiography. In modern terms, I'd describe him as a racist, psycho-serial killer, but he probably was the deadliest gunfighter in the old West, and a lawyer...though with grammar and habits of speech that I wouldn't call educated. The inquest for his murder famously concluded that if he had in fact been shot in the eye as his killer claimed, it was remarkably good shooting, and if he had been shot in the back of the head while facing away from the killer...it was remarkably good sense.

    But a horrible person in every way but one, his real life Hollywood level of skill at shooting people. His famous "border roll" on Wild Bill Hickock remains somewhat controversial.

    Must we burn Sade?, by Simone de Beauvoir. I've wanted to read this book for a year now, and I found it in a shelf that I've looked at hundreds of time before in my grandmother's house

    Dune and 451 have a lot of parallels into current events right now. Starship Troopers is, too.

    Guess that is why they are classics!

    The Retreat of Western Liberalism - As a political scientist, I find that the author scatters a lot of 'facts' with no empirical basis and fails to really define key issues. It strikes me as a little juvenile which is disappointing given how well-educated the author is.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.
