Currently I'm writing two novels simultaneously - one at a time has become too routine.

The fifth book in the Heilsing cases - The Darkness Within and What Dreams May Follow, a sequel to my first novel which lead me to the book that I am currently reading.

Never Stop Dreaming - I'm having to reread it to keep all of the minor character's names consistent.

Love ya,

Sally

I recently finished the book Shesus. It is a little hokey but a great story line about the future. Though it is not a story about transgender, it has a good gender flair. Over all a good read at a discount table price.

Johnathan Livingston Seagull - Richard Bach

So many parallels do I see in this short story, it's so simple, it's beautiful, it's wonderful to bring a tear to my eye.

Be free, and love...

"Goat Husbandry" McKensey

It's a good look at early husbandry in England from the 40's to the 50's, containing a good bit of amusing and practical advice.

Hugs,

Charlize

I recently bought "Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars" by Nathalia Holt and I have started it. So far it's an enjoyable read about the women who worked behind the scenes but performed a vital role in the space program.

But then I saw Ben Bernanke's recent book at the library "The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a Crisis and Its Aftermath" about how the government and financial institutions dealt with the recession of 2007. I found this to be really interesting and it is well written.

I am currently reading 3 different books. The main one I'm reading is Vengeance In Death by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts). It's part of the "In Death" series (a romantic suspense about a cop in the future). 

I'm also reading Shadow Play by Iris Johanson.

And an ebook called Suborn Rising: Beneath The Fall by Aaron Safronoff (I am not sure if this is in any other form).

Not including these 3 books, I have read 33 books in all of 2016.

Hhmmm....Not currently reading any real books  but I'm reviewing as many journal articles relating to the "Cloward & Piven Strategy" (including its tactical applications, current & historic) as I can manage w/o making a 56 mile drive to a university library.

The Silent Deep - The Royal Navy Submarine Service Since 1945 - Peter Hennessy & James Jinks.

I have a bit of a militaristic background and have a fascination with submarines. I have over thirty books covering their history, technical and use.

It makes a change from my detective novels (especially Agatha Christie).

The Imp Series by Debra Dunbar. I'm on book four now. It's a great fantasy series about an Imp who has been hiding out here on Earth as a human for forty years, which is a really long time for demons because the Angels are always hunting them down and killing them. Since she is an Imp she loves all manner of practical jokes, causing trouble, and generally being naughty but she's learned to tone it down to not get caught. Her exposure to humans has also changed her in some ways so that now she actually is beginning to have some very human-like emotions which is where the author gets a good portion of her plot intrigues from!

I actually just finished a book by Dennis Weatley called "The Devil Rides Out", about a group of friends who must rescue another friend who has become entangled with a band of unscruppeless satanists in 1930's England. In the process of rescuing their friend, they discover that the satanist priest is trying to locate a talisman in order to aquire new black magic powers, which would result in plunging the world into an apocalyptic war. Their task now becomes not mearly saving their friend, they must kill the priest. Their pursuit of the priest takes them through the world of the living and the dead, and pits them against the Devil himself.?

 

Next, I might start my yearly reading of "The Lord of the Rings". Obviously a favorite!?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

      Jae, Sister, I can't imagine whats going through you're head now, but you know we are all here for you. You took a big step, although not intentional, but a big one never the less. Give you wife time to adjust to this development. It sounds that she wants to support you, but she needs time to figure out her own feelings. Stay strong, girl!   Big Hug,   Brandi

       Dang it sorry for the misspelled names girls,  using auto Text, my fingers are too nervous and are not hitting the right keys I’m not thinking quite straight.

      Hi Bobby and Brandi I’m sorry I’m just a little freaked out I had no intention of spilling everything last night, just kind happened and things here could get little bumpy... I’m pretty sure she’s going to stay I sure hope she doesn’t leave me. I’m so anxious I can hardly sit still keep going through bouts of trembling and worrying I love her so much I don’t know what I could do if she left... I would just beg at her feet I think. hugs, Jae
    • jae bear
      I’ve been telling her how amazing she is since the moment I woke up I think it’s getting on her nerves, I really have to give her some space and a little time and hope things work out right now she’s so quiet it makes me nervous... hugs, Jae
    • BrandiBri
      Jae, I'm so happy for you! You have a wonderful woman who is willing to stand by you and that's really great. Have a great time shopping!   Love, Brandi 
    • bobbisue
           My answer would be a resounding yes and a big hug but this is your decision I am very happy for you I imagine this is a great weight off of you, be sure to tell your little bunny how wonderful she is for standing by you from yourself and from me  ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) to both of you        bobbisue

      I spend a lot of my time listening to Radio Caroline on the radio now they have their medium wave transmitter. Not quite the pirate radio it once was (they are now legal), but still playing better music than most stations (lots of classic oldies from those days). I listened years ago when they were pirates and BBC was rubbish, with regard to modern music. In general terms they are still more to my taste!   Tracy

      I pay the credit card off at the end of every month. The issue isn't that I'm in debt, or she's in debt. The issue is that she kept using the card when we both agreed to stop using it and because I wasn't paying attention and she never does, it didn't get paid for two months. I've almost filed bankruptcy twice and pulled my fat out of the fire both times, I know what I'm doing here, I'm questioning whether or not she does.

      Thank you Rachel, she asked me to do that this morning, wanted to know if I needed help buying clothes... I think I’m still in bit of shock, I didn’t know how to answer. She’s a medical person so she’s worried about the risks... hugs, Jae
