Welcome to this thread all!  It has been long neglected unfortunately.  @doglvr  Historical fiction is one of my favorites too.

 

@nyadrn  I am still recovering from what has happened with mom.  Everything has changed.

This is my 1st visit to the Community forums but the word books just "grabbed" me.  I'm an avid reader & am surrounded by books.  I read anything except romances.  Historical fiction is my favorite, followed by sci-fi.  I just started Ken Follett's World Without End, which is his sequel to Pillars of the Earth.  It took me a long time to start it as it's such a long book, but a page turner, because I have so many other books to get to. 

 

Is there such an addiction as books?  If there is I'm an addict who doesn't want to be cured.

I read all kinds of books - old and new. Right now I'm reading Zane Grey's Riders of the Purple Sage, since I was in the mood for a western. I find it quite interesting.

It Can’t Happen Here” is a classic novel written by Author, Sinclair Lewis: ISBN#: 045121658X

♦♦♦ A charismatic and power-hungry politician, is elected President of the United States on a populist platform, promising to restore the country to prosperity and greatness, and, more importantly, promising each citizen $5,000 a year (approximately $79,270, adjusted for inflation). Once in power, however, he becomes a dictator; he outlaws political dissent, puts his political enemies in concentration camps, and creates a paramilitary force who terrorize the citizens on a Law and Order platform in the idealism of a delusional corrupt jingoistic  spirit. One of his first actions as President is to make changes to the Constitution which give him sole power over the country, rendering Congress obsolete. This is met by protest from the congress as well as outraged citizens, but he declares a state of martial law and throws the protesters in jail. As democracy is dismantled, most Americans either support him and his Corpo Regime wholeheartedly and keep reassuring themselves that fascism “can’t happen here” in America,…

Twice I logged in and then couldn't reply, I see what you mean about being difficult to post on. I started TWO KINDS OF TRUTH, the latest Harry Bosch book by Michael Connelly, just last night. That's my latest.

@RetiredHogger  I enjoy his books.  I am glad you were able to post!!

I'm still reading, but this forum is so difficult to post on or reply to, and I'm pretty tech-savvy. I had a hard enough time trying to respond to you.
