In My Library
It began with a book about Dr. Paul Farmer, Mountains Beyond Mountains: Healing the World. I quickly moved on to Lasting Valor by Vernon J. Baker, then Ice Bound by Dr. Jerri Nielson. I felt guilty with my departure when, over a weekend, I read a David Baldacci book. But I was back on track when I read Death Clutch by Brock Lesnar. In the last month, I have been reading biographies. I am now rereading Band of Brothers and will most likely watch the DVD series again when I am done.
With each book I encounter, I try to take something from it. Whether it is a positive message the author sends like Ricky Martin did in Me or when George Bush describes the trials he had in Decision Points. During my reading, I attempt to imagine being there with them and coming up with a solution to complicated difficulties. This became a problem when I went through the Bourne Trilogy because I had no idea what to do, so I sat back and simply kept turning the pages.
I also have a fascination with zombies and went through the first 13 Walking Dead comics in less than a week. When the series aired, I had to have the DVDs. I am still waiting to find out what happens; it's been a while since issue 13. I have most of Robert E. Howard's books, one on Michelle Obama, a Corrie ten Boom book and yes, I have read The Hunger Games trilogy but only the first three books of The Mortal Instruments series and I am on Team Jacob. So my question this week is, "What's in your library?"
