Happy Easter. It was the Holy Week last week over here in the Philippines. In the spirit of the season, I read:

1. By Karen Armstrong:

- Holy War
- The Bible-The biography

2. Zealot: The life and times of Jesus of Nazareth, by
Reza Aslan; this is quite interesting, not only because
of the subject matter of course, but because its author
is a Muslim, and an Iranian to boot.

I read this one first: The Dust Bowl - An Illustrated History by Dayton Duncan and Ken Burns I believe it was the companion book to the PBS series.

I just finished Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand Incredible story.

The Modern Day Gunslinger, it's basically a tactics and mindset book.

Your mind is the weapon, the firearm is just a tool.
Think outside the box.

Let us know when done reading it. It is on my short list.

I'm at a point where I'm looking for some new (to me) authors to read. A lot of women writers will spend 4 pages describing wall paper or the scent of lilacs in the morning dew. But I like a few of the ladies like Tami Hoag and Iris Johanssen. I recently finished a book by Cathrine Coulter called Blow Out. It took me a couple of chapters to get used to her writing style but it was an entertaining read. The action is good.

I'm now about 150 pages into Criminal by Karin Slaughter. She seems to be somewhat more "literate" than a lot of her contemporaries. She brings the plot along nicely and the dialogue is a little salty for a woman writer. There hasn't been much action so far but what there has been was well written.

I'm always on the lookout for authors I haven't read. There are some that are on my list and I mean to get around to them eventually.
G-17, G-23, G-21, G-36, Ruger blackhawk, ss, Ruger 10/22, Ruger Mark II, Ruger SP101, British Webley MKI .455, Kel-Tec P32, S&W top break .38, S&W 24-3 .44spl N frame Colt 1903 .32, Heritage .22 Combo, Colt AR-15, LE6920.

Right now it is: "Satan's Power", A Deviant Psychotherapy Cult" By William Sims Bainbridge

The story of "The Process Church of the Final Judgement." By the way this explains why they were a murderous Occult group that is now known as "Best Friends" in Kanab Utah.

TRAGIC MOUNTAINS The HMONG, the AMERICANS, and the Secret Wars for LAOS, 1942-1992 Jane Hamilton-Merritt

Note to self: never become an ally of the USA in a secret war... results can be genocidal.
(I think the Kurds learned this as well later on.)

Just finished "The Assassin" by Clive Cussler and ? Scott. Good book featuring Isaac Bell as the protagonist. Think this is number six in an ongoing series set in the 1890s-1930s featuring technologies of the era. I've enjoyed all of them so far.
