May be time to revisit the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Reading "Native American Testimony" by Peter Nabokov. A compilation of oral and written history as passed down through the Native Americans.

Anthropologist Peter Nabokov presents a history of Native American and white relations as seen though Indian eyes and told through Indian voices. Beginning with the Indians' first encounters with European explorers, traders, missionaries, settlers, and soldiers to the challenges confronting Native American culture today.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Plato(427-347 BC) Philosopher and Educator

Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. Henry James (1843-1916) Writer

When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire
kind people. -Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972) Theology Professor

This looks really good.

I'm reading a study on relations between homeland Japanese and their ex-pats in Brazil, as research for a young adult novel I'm writing.

I just finished Robert Emmett Ginna's The Irish Way. It is a travelogue of a walking tour he did through Ireland, from the very top at Malins Head to Kinsale in the south. Ginna walked through the center of Ireland, staying at B&B's, hotels, etc along the way. He gives an excellent accounting of Irish history at historic sites he visits. Sometimes he did lose me when going into genealogic detail of some the Irish gentry of the past. Otherwise, a great book that I recommend to anyone with an interest in Ireland.

Reading some new women's literature translated from Arabic -- I'm helping on the editing project of a journal volume highlighting new Arab writers, and we are reading through a ton of submissions. Like anything else, some is good, some not. But all of it is an education.

I just finished The Dragon Reborn, book 3 of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. So, since I'm waiting a week or two to go in and buy book 4, I decided to finally tackle The Silmarillion. I also picked up Life In a Medieval Villiage, and The Goddess, The Grail & The Lodge which talks about the true origins of the symbol of the Grail, which pre-date Christianity.

Of course, Angela and I are still reading The Eye of The World, book 1 of Jordan's Wheel of Time. Far too much on the go at once, eh? wink.gif

The William Johstone and J. A. Johnstone book "Jackknife". It is excellent, a bit violent in parts, but shows how terrorism can come to middle America.

A History of God, the 4,000 Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.



jime307.......by Lloyd Alexander. Awesome series. It was actually the first series that I ever read back in the 5th grade (We won't say how many years ago that was), and it was what got me turned on to the fantasy genre. I'm reading the series to my son now at bedtime...we're on Taran Wanderer.

oldraven......I would highly suggest reading The Silmarillion by itself when you can devote the time to it if you haven't read it before. And don't go into it expecting it to read like the Trilogy or The Hobbit. Have you thought about reading the History series yet, complied and edited by Christopher Tolkien?
