SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPISE

I came home from work today and found this waiting for me on the porch. This is the 2nd gift from my friend Unokhan in Baton Rouge. A couple of weeks before he sent me a Caroline Herring CD titled Lantana. I had never heard of her before but she's terrific and I play it often..I'm knee deep in a good book right now, but as soon as I finish it I'm starting on People's History of the United States. It's a big one so it will take me a while, but think I'm going to really enjoy this. I love American History and this book starts in 1492 and ends up with us bent over a desk and being screwed by George W. Bush...well, maybe not exactly like that, but you get the drift..


thanks again Unokhan...you rock~

If ever you are short of History we have loads to spare, not all good though, lol

I remember the last gift I got in the mail. It came from some strange lady in Texas. It's always nice to be thought of.
I wonder which version of US history it will be.

You seriously make me wish I had time to pleasure read.

I totally dig up on reading about any kind of history.... So you may actually win this one that's coming up.

Book on tape/CD is always better with me since I seem to be driving alllll the time.

I look forward to your review. I just placed my order with Amazon for the first 2 James Lee Burke books.

I hope I like them even 1/2 as much as you do. They is no greater pleasure than a good read. Well almost no greater pleasure...

I read that some years before but if Zinn has added thoughts on the current administration I need to read it again!

Oh yay, Howard Zinn! That's history that should be taught in schools instead of that crap they put in the textbooks. You'll love it.
