  1. the underlining and highlighting would definitely be distracting. i just bought an old copy of Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder that had a small paper with child like horse sketches in it.
  2. The Martian

    I could not put this book down. When I found out they were making a movie i was very skeptical. They did it fairly good justice. The character in the book had a perfect balance of fear, pride, arrogance, humor and wit.
  3. Favourite Stephen King?

    11/22/63 is definitely my favorite.
  4. Edward Rutherford

    London sounds a lot like Chesapeake by James A Michener. I love multigeneration novels. Absolutely agree with Kiwi about love/hate relationship with characters from each generation. I feel sad when beloved characters pass away and hope the next generation turns out well. The Kent Family Chronicles is similar.
  5. Blackout

    Thanks I will check it out
  6. Books! Books! Books!

    Thanks!
  7. I found an newspaper clipping in a Bible of President Roosevelt giving a national thanksgiving prayer. Not sure we will ever see something like that again.
  8. Books! Books! Books!

    Awesome, thanks! I found an newspaper clipping in a Bible of President Roosevelt giving a national thanksgiving prayer. Not sure we will ever see something like that again here.
  9. Blackout

    Sounds Interesting. At first I though you were talking about Final Blackout by Hubbard. Not a bad book either. Fun weekend read.
  10. WWI Historical Fiction

    If you like alternative historical fiction, Harry Turtledove is a fun read. He covers the major wars including WWI.
  11. Diana Gabaldon

    Great books! My wife and I love them. The TV Series does a pretty good job following the story. Looking forward to the new season! Diana is pretty funny. You can definitely see her personality in the stories.
  12. Books! Books! Books!

    Sure ok.
  13. Books! Books! Books!

    Hi All, Love the forum. I love sci-fi (Greg Bear, Niven, etc), Historical Fiction (Michener, Jakes) and especially Alternative History (Turtledove, Flint). Even Steven King surprised me with 11/22/63. It was a fun read. I also love collecting and reading old books. I recently read Country Squire in the White House from 1940. It is amazing how similar the story seems to be to modern times. Seems not much has change in politics. The best part about finding old books in antique stores, used books stores and estate sales is finding personal inscriptions in them! It's like a treasure hunt every time we go out. I am just doing beta of my website to document these inscriptions and old books. It will be fun to search through, find and read about the personal treasure that have be forgotten on dusty book shelves. If you have any old books with inscriptions that you can add to the library or have any suggestions to improve the site I would love to hear feed back. Paul Waterman
