Juggling 3 books at the moment... Soldier ask not (mind candy) Gordon R Dickenson, The Iliad by Homer which I read every couple of years and the Go Rin No Sho by Musashi which is in permanent rotation.
I just finished Nature's Eternal Religion. Its a guide for preserving the white race. That sounds extreme and probably even silly to most people but according to amnesty international and similar organizations that provide statistics and demographic data, the white race is in fact shrinking at an alarming rate. Klaussen knew this back in the 70s and suggests that other races are essentially harmful to the white race and with the data he provides, its hard to dispute. Some races are more harmful than others obviously. If every white American read this book, I can guarantee you 100% there would be a revolution in this country.
I love biographies. Just finishing up on "Frank" The Voice. I especially like it because most of it takes place in NYC/LA and I have been to many of the places mentioned in the book. Great memories growin' up in the City back in the early Fifties and visiting my Aunt and Uncle in LA many times. THAT was when America was in its heyday. GOOD TIMES!
Absolutely outstanding read, "had" to read it in high school, went back and reread it a few years later. I enjoyed it so much; I didn't return it to school. I found his other books in used bookstores a few years back. None of them are as good as Alas Babylon, but Mr. Adam was a real close 2nd.
Just finished "Män som hatar kvinnor" ...better known by its English title "Girl with the dragon tattoo" :). It was an awesome read, though I regret seeing the movie before I read the book. I'm looking forward to reading the next two in the series and after that I hope to read Ender's Game.
If anyone else has recommendations along the mystery/thriller/adventure genre please feel free to make recommendations !
I'm currently reading "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Weston Price, published in 1939. He looked at "primitive" people around the world and found that had fewer than one tooth with a cavity per 100, despite no dentists, no tooth brushes, no fouride, and no floss. Once they stared eating white flour, canned foods and sugar teeth with decay went up to 30-50 per 100.
Crooked teeth, club feet, etc. are very rare on primitive diets and all become commonplace once on the white man's food.
The Peripheral by William Gibson, one of my favorite modern authors. His new novel.
1/2 way done, pretty good so far.
Finished. I enjoyed the book, however, a few things in it I didn't care for, example, the global warming meme popped up. The end was a little too "happily ever after" for me as well.
Still, a good read for Gibson [cyberpunk SciFi] readers.
I just finished Liberty Against the Law by Christopher Hill. It's not my usual kind of book. It deals primarily with loss of liberty in England due to the enclosures and the attempt by the gov't to control religion to better control the populace. I'm going to have to think about this one for a while.
