Just finished â€śWater for Elephants.â€ť Good!!
â€śThree Cups of Teaâ€ť by Gregg Mortenson and â€śMy Booky Wookâ€ť by Russel Brand. I like to read two books at once. It helps build suspense.

My reading material would be of interest to a small group, I fear... A.W. Tozer and Watchman Nee, at present!!

I'm glad to see you are still urging Starkvillians to read. One of my recent reads that I really enjoyed is Hellohound on His Trail:The Stalking of Martin Luther King Jr. and the International Hunt for His Assassin by Hampton Sides. It's a page turner that covers the King assassination from the perspective of James Earl Ray.
I just recently finished rereading TO KILL A MOCKING BIRD because it was our book club selection for September. I am now reading THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD by Zora Neale Hurston. Having been published in 1937, it remains popular today and is considered to be an excellent example of African American literature. BIDDING IN THE 21 CENTURY, a textbook for teaching bridge, is another book that I and may others in town are reading and studying right now.
