    I have 25 pages left of NEVER LOOK AT THE EMPTY SEATS: A MEMOIR by Charlie Daniels. I had requested this via the Inter Library Loan system some time back and from the time of the request Charlie was still with us and passed away before the book arrived. I have found it to be an interesting read, not only because of the history of The Charlie Daniels Band and the people of his operation, it also delves into how and who the people and record companies the band worked with over his career. Charlie's other projects are also covered such raising horses and cattle and stories about his family, the tribulations of being in business and friends he made in the music industry right up to being inducted into the Grand Old Opry. Even if you are not a Charlie Daniels fan I suspect you would enjoy reading the contents of this book.

    catching up on back issues of The Atlantic... sometimes I get in a habit of just reading stuff on my Kindle and then the few paper subscriptions sort of back up....

    I am halfway through the first book and am enjoying it so much---I do find myself comparing it to the show however...I wish I would have read the novels first then seen the show--but---no matter...!

    The timing and pace of the show doesn't follow the novels exactly, so a few books in you'll start seeing more differences... and by Book 5 you'll be in uncharted territory. (No spoilers, but it's good stuff.)

    Excellent----I'm not one of those who demand that books-movies match---it's just that unfortunately seeing the series first--builds sort of visualizations---I'm still working on Amos being balding...???

    Just finished an indulgence, _The Baron of Magister Valley_ which is a pastiche of _The Count of Monte Cristo_ --- not quite as informed by the biography of Dumas Père as I'd hoped, but an enjoyable read (and only recommended for fans of fantasy who like Steven Brust's work).

    Reading Calina C. Shevlin's _Guilloché: A History and Practical Manual_ which I'm enjoying, but probably a bit obscure.

    Finishing up _Why Knot?_ by Philippe Petit --- a noted aerialist, this is a far more practical and correct book than other books on knots which I've read(or tried to read and given up on when instructions for knots didn't work) --- highly recommended for everyone who needs a refresher or some practical exercises in knots.

    I picked up Lions of Lucerne a couple months ago at a used book store for $.50.

    Now I'm stuck buying the rest of the :censored: series for my Kindle at $9.99 a piece. Just finished book #10, The Athena Project.

    Only 13 more to go.:rolleyes:

    Do you have access to a public library that facilitates e-books? My local here in Fairfax County does so; I've borrowed e-books for my Kindle often. Most often glad to have done that as a single read -- sometimes not even; just didn't like it -- occasionally decided I needed a permanent version for myself which sometimes was bought for Kindle more often was then paper...

    Uh, no. I don't have access to ANY public library, at least not free access. When my kids were little we paid for a library card in a nearby town.

    One of the few drawbacks to rural living.
