I finished reading Three Cups of Tea, and I highly recommend it. It is a really interesting and inspiring story, with lots of detail about everyday life in remote areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. In the afterword they mention that the book is 'required reading for senior U.S. military commanders, Pentagon officers in counter-insurgency training, and Special Forces deploying to Afghanistan."
If and when you do read it, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I thought of you reading it, especially when reading the parts about Afghanistan..
Hope you're doing well!
Hey---Too bad your Dad doesn't like the computer--he's the real reader! You've read a lot lately, I have one whole book on my shelf! I hope you invited Gret, she'll have a lot of info on boodks. Maybe I'll just list the books that Ron's reading so you can know what he's reading. Right now it would be #Snake Oil Science" by Bausell
hola muel, lets see, the last book i read was... loard of the flies. It was my freshman year in high school. Ya know, i don't think i even read it. I think i got it on audio book so i wouldn't have to read it. hummmm. i don't think i did well on that exam. and now, hear i am on a book site. who would have thunk. SB
I so seldom go to Shefari that I didn't realize you'd written me here. I do look forward to talking with you soon, and I'll share someof the utopian ideas I had as a youngster. Actually, I still have them, just don't have the energy to carry them out.
Love and hugs to you,
I'm not sure if this note will come from me or from Uta- I have problems with Shaelfari and My ability to negotiate the technology. In any event, it's good to hear from you. I see you like Heller. The protagonist of his "Catch 22" was supposed to be a guy named Gerry Schaflander, who became 'infamous' for his hyfuel designs. Anyway, I knew him in NJ where a group of us were trying to put together a school to develop genius children. Tell you about it sometime. Once I finish a final paper for a course I'm taking, I look forward to doing some pleasure reading and one of Saramago's books looks interesting.
Be well and hope to see you soon.
I only just got 'God is not Great' from the library a day or two ago and am maybe 15 pages in. So I can't say a lot yet, but it seems he is definitely coming form an atheist perspective. I'll let get back with you once I have more under my belt.
Would you recommend the 'God Delusion' generally? I definitely look forward to being able to discuss books in person again! :-)
