An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I’ve been doing a LOT of reading lately….more so that usual. Well, basically, that’s about all I’ve been able to do. LONG story, but suffice it to, I haven’t been all that functional.
Apparently, I had forgotten you can actually read it on your computer if you don’t have a Kindle, so I would recommend getting it! It’s not a really long book, but it is extremely readable, and quite informative! Unless you have been living under a rock, you will be familiar with the doings in Wisconsin since Scott Walker was elected, and took office in January of 2011. Cindy gives us a timeline, and includes a number of items you likely never heard on the evening news. If you have any interest in current affairs, politics, and the future of the country, this would be a good choice. Learn what we are up against as a nation through the example of Wisconsin.
2- Back in March, fellow blogger Wyatt (Shawn Goodwin) of Support Your Local Gunfighter released his very first attempt at fiction writing, with Pamela Meister. I said buy it! Have you? *tapping toes*
I gave my unprofessional opinion back in April, I really did enjoy it, and have been bugging him to do a sequel. Heh. Yeah… I can be a pest. One thing that chaps my hide…they lowered the price AFTER I already bought it. Is this a Murphy’s Law thing? Quite affordable on Kindle now, at $3.99! *glare*
3- If you want a chin dropper of faith and redemption, I HIGHLY recommend The Lost Testament by Brian Thompson (Kindle $2.99).
Set in the early 1960s North Carolina, with all the ugliness that entails. I don’t often give a book 5 stars, but this one, I had to (on Amazon). It was well written, with twists and turns, and quite a surprise ending. I wonder if Mr Thompson will write a sequel? I should be so lucky. sigh….
Well, that should keep y’all busy for a while. There are a LOT more I could recommend. I’m finding that some of those free, or VERY low priced Kindle books are pretty dadburn good.
