The Places in Between by Rory Stewart. Stewart is member of the British Foreign Service. He walked across Afghanistan in 2001 and 2002 - and lived! I'll let you know how it is cause I'm still reading it.

Just finished reading "Ireland" by Frank Delaney. A bunch of stories from Ireland woven together by the story of a young man's quest to find the storyteller himself.
Great book. Also recommend Conceived without Sin and House of Gold by Bud Mcfarlane. Free from Catholiccity.com Adventures of a Donkey Pilgrim is a good read if you want to know a little about the geography of Ireland and still be entertained. And its a true story.

Not sure if I shared this or not, but I am reading a historical fiction book by Loren Teague called "Highland Rebel." It starts off after the 1745 battle of Culloden and then the characters go to the new American colonies. I have really enjoyed this book and have learned lots.

Last night I just finished re-reading Anne of Avonlea by L.M Montgomery and it was hilarious. The last time I read it was probably 10 years ago and I'd forgotten how funny the Anne of Green Gables books are.

I just started Forbidden Fruit: Love Stories from the Underground Railroad. So far it's romantic and inspirational at the same time. The true stories are wonderful but the historical introductions to each tale are a bit redundant. I must admit, I've been skipping over them to get to the good stuff!

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

I've just finished "John" by Cynthia Lennon. It's all about how they met, their happy lives together, and how things began to fall apart when John discovered LSD and the troll Yoko Ono appeared outside their door. Cynthia is honest in her accounts and doesn't try to make John into a monster... rather, their story of falling in love & their early years are so sweet to read about.
Now I was a kid who was too young to be swept up in full-blown Beatlemania but nonetheless loved their music - and who tended to like John best - so I was fascinated by Cynthia's perspective on the beginning of the Beatles and what it was like to be a part of those years. Its heartbreaking to find out how John treated Cynthia and Julian, especially Julian - my goodness, he was virtually ignored once Yoko and John were a couple. That boy didn't deserve to be ignored the way he was... at least John had started to make things right, but unfortunately was murdered before they could totally reconcile.

I heartily recommend this book.

"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..."

"Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential" by James Moore and Wayne Slater. Reading about all the dirty tricks that Rove pulled in Texas is sickening.

May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
