Just wondering what books any one reads? I just got done with Sammy Hagar "RED" and read it in 2 days. Very good autobiogrphy and am now reading " if this isn't jerky, than what did I just eat" from Bill Heavey. And just picked up "In The Sancuary Of Outcasts" An auto biography of a mans life behind bars for 4 years.

What books did/do you read or authers you enjoy

This wheel's on Fire. Autobiography from Levon Helm of The Band. Very interesting difference of some things with Robbie Robertson's views on the way things went down.

The Vanquished - how WW1 failed to end.

This one is an eye opener.  Several wars and political jockeying continued in Europe after WW1 officially ended. This is what high school didnt teach us and what todays pop culture media fails to understand and teach when discussing history leading up to WW2 and the rise of Nazi Germany.

My Two Elaines by former Gov. Martin Schreiber. It's about him being the caregiver for his wife who has Alzheimer's. If anyone in your family has this horrible disease, it's a must read. My mom is afflicted and in memory care.

Finished rereading Black Light by Stephen Hunter. He is the author of Point of Impact that the movie Shooter was based on. Black Light is last in a trilogy including Point of Impact and Dirty White Boys. These books are thillers with politcal intriuge and action.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a true Martyr, unfortunately that label is over used today..

Currently reading Bonhoffer by Eric Mctexas, (the long version). Easy to see the parallels of mindsets during Nazi era and todays pop culture/political climate.  That evil never went away it just manifests itself into a bigger propaganda machine we have today.

Just finished Liberty and Tyranny by Mark Levin.. Interesting read based on where we are today. Think it was written 2009, but really forward looking. Sure explains how we are where we are.
