I'll make a note to add that to my to-read list. (Yes, I have a list. Current list to order is 22 books strong at the current time.) I'm always open for suggestions. I would order it now, but I have 8 more stacked atop my bookcase awaiting attention still at the moment.

Devo, in IMGUR when you generate BBC code click "Huge Thumbnail" before you copy the text. You photos are massive.

Desert Solitaire is next in my queue on Audible.

Thanks. I'll be using tapatalk again now that it's available. Hopefully pics won't be huge anymore.

I remember seeing the movie adaptation of this book when I was a lot younger. Just finished the book. Illustrations were impressive by Mr. Wrightson. A good, quick read.

A true gem from the local Dollar Tree. Best suited for men in their 60's or older, this kept me laughing out loud.

mahvelous- incredible, outstanding.

Informative read. Takes me back to my childhood in the 50's and 60's at the Jersey shore and seeing the insecticide fog truck treating areas where we played, fished, crabbed, and clammed. A few years later being subjected to the same in the workplace.
Not surprising to think of the numbers of friends/family members lost to cancer. 🙁You cannot see attachments on this board.

My next read will be Bethania, the Village by the BLack Walnut Bottom.

Those are familiar with the history of WS, or a descendant of the Moravians, are probably acquainted with, or know of the diaries written various people in the community from the mid 1750s onward until just before the civil war.  This book has some very up close and personal accounts of everyday life in the days leading up to the  Revolutionary War.  Some very juicy material here.

Enjoyed this book big time! Mystery, truth, and history wrapped into one. 📚 #edwinrist #kirkwallacejohnson #alfredrusselwallace #deadbirds

My favorite Mark Twain book is "Life on the Mississippi" I highly recommend reading it.
