UPDATE…for some strange reason I felt compelled to dig through my jumbled little library and find That Hideous Strength (the third book of The Space Trilogy) by C.S. Lewis. Have been reading it carefully for the last week (for the 3rd or 4th time…have this thing lately about rereading good stuff). Seems oddly appropriate for what is happening in the Presidential election. Take a look at it and see if you don’t agree!
Currently reading and highly recommend The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbons.
Rereading Desmond Seward’s The Hundred Years War. Highly recommended but, at a little less than 300 pages, it is extremely condensed for such a vast subject.
Just started a reread (4th or 5th time–I lost count) of William Manchester’s The Last Lion. I am still working on Gibbons, but have finished The Hundred Years War.
