Hi, All............




I'm
almost
finished
with
the
final
Harry
Potter
bookI
have
enjoyed
them
all, and
my
mind
is
captivated
by
the
imagination
and
talents
of
J.K. Rowling
I've
not
cared
for
some
of
her
more
recent 'revelations'
about
some
of
the
characters, but
what's
in
her
mind
fascinates
meI
wonder
what
she
will
come
up
with
next!

Hi
Nancy,




I
just
had
to
look
up "A
Short
History
of
Tractors
in
Ukrainian" to
see
what
it
was
really
aboutThe
title
is
very
deceivingI
thought
you
were
reading
a
book
about
tractors
and
that
sounded
very
boring
to
meI
sure
was
surprised
to
see
what
the
book
was
really
aboutAre
you
enjoying
it?




I
looked
up "Jewel
in
the
Crown" also
but
don't
think
that
book

meDo
you

it?




I'm
almost
finished
with
Elizabeth
Berg's
book "Open
House".  It's
a
very
easy
read
and
quite
enjoyableI'll
probably
pick

a
mystery
next.




Janese



I
was
told
the "Tractor" book
was
funnyIt
isn'tIt's
sadIt's
about
an
85-year
old
man
who
is "used"
by
a
35-year
old
Albanian
woman
to
get
citizenship
in
EnglandShe
uses
her
feminine
wiles
to
convince
him
to
marry
herShe's
a
witch
and
I
hope
she
gets
punished
at
the
end
of
the
book.


"Jewel
in
the
Crown" is
very
slow
reading
and
if
I
didn't
have
the
SeniorNet
discussion
to
read, I
probably
would
have
put
the
book
down
weeks
ago.



I
got
my
newest
book
from
Amazon
todayIt's
"An
Uncommon
Reader" and
is
a "novella". 
Senior

Net
will
be
discussing
it
beginning
March
1stI'm
going
to
Philadelphia
for
the
Flower
Show
for
the
next
four
daysI'm
leaving
tomorrow
and
taking
all
my
books
with
meI'm
visiting
a
friend
whom
I
haven't
seen
in
three
yearsWe
don't
plan
on
doing
much
except
lounging
around
and
talkingWe'll
go
to
the
Flower
Show
Monday
and
I'll
head
back
home
Tuesday.



I
asked
on
the
old
site, but
I'll
ask
here, tooHave
you
found
a
way
to
receive
an
e-mail
message
when
someone
posts
a
message
to
one
of "your"
groups?


'Til
Wednesday,

I
definitely
agree
with
you
regarding
the
enjoyability
of "Angels
& Demons".  I
liked
it
much
more
than "The

only
read
it
because
I

I
had
to
read
it
first

found
out
that
it
didn't
really
matter
since
the
only
thing
one
had
to
do
with
the
other
was
the
main

have
not
read "The

probably
won't
as
I've
had
my
fill
of
that
type
of
bookI
much
prefer
light
hearted
books, horror, or
a
good
mysteryI
do
read
an
occasional
historical
book
or
biography.

Feel free to mention any book you've read for it may be of interest to someone.  I have not read the book you mentioned but did read both The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown.  They were both fascinating.  I like what you said about reading it didn't mean you believed half of what the author said but it did get you thinking.  If it did that than I think the book was worth reading.


I finished The Summons and am now reading "Open House" by Elizabeth Berg.  A light but enjoyable read on the Oprah book club list.

Actually there is one book that I did read recently, but I didn't mention it because of it's religious nature. At first I through it in the trash, and then I went back and rescued it. Mainly because I wanted to see if anyone else on here had read it. The book came to me free in the mail addressed to the resident. At first I though it was from some church like the ones who come around banging on my door on Saturday, which annoys me to no end. I do believe with out really checking on the author from what he says in the book that he is either a Seven Day Adventist or has leanings toward them. Of course if he believes all that he writes in his book, it is apparent that he hates the catholic church and all that it stands for.


The name of the book was "The Enemy Unmasked, SE, by Bill Hughes," I did a search on the net and found several references to the book, and it is for sell at one place for $5.00 a copy. It turns out that he has written two books, the other is, " The Secret Terrorists." Which I have not read yet, but I have found and ear marked a copy on line to read later, if I have the time.


Any way it seems that back in history the catholic church and the pope established the order of the Jesuits. Later after being thrown out by the monarch's of most of the countries, they formed the Illuminati to hide behind. Today they are suppose to be a very strong organization who's main purpose is the destruction of protestantism. They are suppose to be the force behind all the trouble in the world, and their main objective now is the destruction on the United States. You have to read the book yourself to see how he ties it all together.


I must admit that a lot of what he says seems to explain the state of the world today, and what has happened to this country in the last eight years. That doesn't mean I believe half of what he says, but it does set me thinking, and the book will probable end up back in the trash. I do believe there is some group that is pulling the strings behind the scenes to line their own pockets, with out care for what happens to this country or its people.

The
Illuminati, I
remember
reading
about
them. I
watched
the
film, the
DaVinci
Code, and
they
have
similar
secrecy
conspiracy
theories. I
find
it
fascinating.



Hope
you
enjoy
that
one.



I
picked
up
a
copy
of
Betrayal
of
Trust, regarding
the
health
care /insurance
industry. When
I
say "picked
up" I
should
put
emphasis
there- since
it
must
weigh
more
than
any
book
I
ever
picked
up.



It
is
a
very
long
read, so
it
will
really
have
to
grab
me
to
see
me
through
to
the
end.



I;ll
let
you
know
if
I
make
it
to
the
end.



Have
a
great
day!
