So I was thinking that I would start talking about some good books that I've read lately. But I also wanted to see if anyone else out there has read anything good as well. I'm always trying to find some good new material to read, so if you know of anything that's caught your fancy, speak up and let me know. I'll bust out with what I've read as well.

"history of the CIA" was great. tells how JFK'S connection to the mob finally got him killed ( and probably RFK too). declassified material after 50 years explains in detail. also how CIA repeatedly make incredibly huge blunders repeatedly that got hundreds of informants killed in the soviet union, as well as how they missed their own guys becoming turncoats when the signs were everywhere and obvious.

its fact now. no more just rumors and speculation!

Hmmmm, pretty cool. I was just watching this big documentary on the Kennedys. What an interesting family. I might have to check that book out that you mentioned; by the way, did I buy that? I really don't know much about the CIA (not that many people do I suppose) so I guess I'd learn quite a bit. That kind of reminds me of all the stuff going on around the Russian spy who died because of the radioactive poisoning. Interesting indeed.

yes, you got me that book. thats why i really like to get books for gifts. its so good to realize i would never have read a great book if someone hadnt given it to me.

Tuesdays with Morrie is a great book. Rob recommended it to me and I recently bought it for Dad but he's yet to read it. Anyways, that is a good suggestion. Let me know if you end up getting it or have read it already.
Hugs, Angela

Cool, I've seen Tuesdays on the shelf but I haven't gotten it yet. I'll have to check it out. Isn't that going to be made into a movie?
