If some of you are like me, I have a TBR (to be read) list a mile long! ARGH! Here are my goals for the 2007.

1. Finish reading A Breath of Snow and Ashes, Diana Gabaldon
2. Finish reading Highland Rebel, Loren Teague
4. Read lots of American and Scottish history books I have in possession.
5. Read books on good health.

Anyone plan to share?

I want to try and read what I have before going and buying more. I am guilty of buying some like every couple of weeks and my "to read list" is piling up biggrin.gif I am already on my 4th book for the year and hopefully, I will get those done before giving into temptation to buy more, well, except if a new one of one of my fav authors is introduced hahahaha

Well, I plan on reading the Bible through again this year. I also am reading a historical novel called Ireland that was recommended to me. So far, it is a good read. I was also given another book on the Civil War by my son-in-law and daughter. And I hope to read another biography on a Native American leader (I have several in my library I need to finish).

Haynes, have you read "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee?" I so love that book. What other Native American history books do you recommend? Thanks!

Great book! Another I enjoyed was Custer Died for your Sins. For where I live, The Book of the Navajo is a good read. The Fox and the Whirlwind is a paired biography of General George Crook and Geronimo. For fiction, anything by Tony Hillerman in his Chee and Leaphorn books is a great read!

Hello Haynes. I do have The Book of the Navaho and it is a terrific book. Love the photos in it too.

I have not seen or read "Custer Died For Your Sins" or The Fox and Whirlwind." never heard or seen either of these books and I thought I saw them all!

I have heard truly great things about Tony Hillerman though. I really need to get on the ball and read his books. I hear they are awesome!

Thanks so much for your recommendations! thumbs_up.gif

My pleasure! I have quite a few other Native American books that are good reads. I recently read a book on the life of Red Cloud. Pretty amazing stuff. Some of those nuggets you just have to dig for!

I too have a stack of books waiting to be perused! The first two came from a book sale our library in Cobb County that my daughter made me attend(we had to cart our treasures to the car in a big box!!)

"God Said, 'Ha!'" Julia Sweeney
"Dancing Through Life in a Pair of Broken Heels" Mickey Guisewite

This one is a very old book given to me years ago by my friend Terri's dad Hollis Frey, who died recently; when he gave me this book he said he knew my interest in Scotland and the UK would make me the one person he knew who would really enjoy it. He was such a sweet gentleman, and we'll miss him. Hollis gave me this:
"The Romance of the Highlands" Alex Campbell, F.S.S.Scot. 1927
(There is an inscription inside that reads 'A.T. Arthur From His Sister', 'To Hugh McLaughlan from Dad J. McLaughlan' and then 'To Hollis From Hughie'. then on the next page it says "Mr. A. McLaughlan, 13 Moor Lane, Bedford England'
I just love the idea that this book has been through so many hands!)

The other books in my unread stack include:
"Cash - the Autobiography" Johnny Cash
"Paris to the Moon" Adam Copnik
"The Collected Stories" Eudora Welty


--------------------
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

I have a ton of books stacked up yet to read, but there are some books comming out I'm planning on picking up:

Two new CE Murphy books
Hopefully another PJ Tracy book
two Jim Butcher books
The new Christopher Moore book
I might re-read the Stardoc novels and catch up on the new ones

Plus I'm sure there will be a bunch more comming out to tempt me too.

And those who don't love us
May God turn their hearts,
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Ange and I need to finish Master and Fool, from J.V.Jones' Book of Words trilogy. We haven't read in months, and ended at the point of climax, (where the 'hero' is not just left for dead, but you see his last moments, where he finally encounters the antagonist). A bad place to have a hiatus, to say the least. We always have a book on the go that we take turns reading to one another at bedtime. It's like our own realtime book club. wink.gif

I want to finish The Eye of The World, from Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time. It's the first book, and my eldest brother has been trying to get me to read it since our teens. Angela got it for me for Christmas last year. Also Phantom Islands of the Atlantic, about islands on old maps that have gone missing, or never existed to begin with (the Isles of St. Brendan, for example).

Beyond that, I have a stack of books that need reading, along with the scores of Automotive Magazines that I barely have time to leaf through lately.

Ok, I accomplished one of my reading goals from my list above! biggrin.gif I finished "Highland Rebel" by Loren Teague. Now onto to the others of my TBR list and I forgot the Popular Photography magazines! How could I have forgotten my magazines?! OR reminded me when he mentioned his automotive magazines.
