    I'm reading Ravi Zacharias' "The End of Reason" and Larry Schweikart's "48 Liberal Lies About American History." Mr Smith wants me to read "A Patriot's History of the United States" by the same author, but I'm not sure I can take that much history. :D

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    It's the newest one. I think it's been out for about a year.

    I gave my father Hiaasen's book on taking up golf again after not playing for thirty years. Dad loved it.

    I read these as an adult and loved them! Lewis is a great author and the ending was great!

    Has anyone read Ken Follett's "Pillars of the Earth" and "World's End"? Great books...very different from his political thrillers.

    One of my fave authors is Dean Koontz, although I haven't liked all of his books, but most.

    I always get suckered into reading Stephen King, and then am ticked at the ending!!!

    I know they are for kids, but the Harry Potter series is incredibly laid out and plot filled. Rowling is a brilliant author...can't wait till she writes something for adults!!!
