    Dragonfly -- the true story behind the MIR space station and the problems between the Russians and Americans who flew together on it. Excellent book if you like technology or space. It gives insight into the Russian space program and how they use less back-up than we do for systems.

    I just finished American Terrorist, the story of Timothy McVeigh.

    Pitipat,

    I probably ought to go back and read 1984. It's one of those "everybody orta read" books.

    Give me your review of the JFK book you're reading. That sounds like one I'm going to have to read. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get around to reading Clinton's autobio. I'm not much for audiobooks, but Clinton reads it himself at www.audible.com, and I'm tempted to download it there since (for whatever else is right/wrong about the man) he is a mesmerizing speaker.

So far the author is one who captures my interest. I have wanted to read Clinton for a while, but was not willing to pay for it. I found a liberal Irish friend who had both ;) .

    I'm re-reading Basic Economics: A Citizens Guide to the Economy, Revised and Expanded by Thomas Sowell.

    Excellent resource for everyone (especially Christians) who want to understand how money and economies work. God has ordained that there is a financial aspect to Kingdom work. We might as well understand how it works if, for no other reason, that we are not led astray by fads, fools, and cheats.
