A kind of full circle moment.  I created this thread 12 years ago (wow!) and in it I wrote that I was reading THE HUNGER GAMES among various other books.  Iím just now nearing the end of THE BALLAD OF SONGBIRDS AND SNAKES, the prequel novel of? THE HUNGER GAMES.  

I rarely read fiction.  I mean, itís so rare that I may go years without reading a single one.  But I just so happened to be reading this in anticipation of the upcoming film and because my wife, who listened to the audio book, wants to discuss it with me.

The Great Comic Book Heroes by Jules Peifer. Again.
Love reading the observations of Golden Age comics from someone who read them as a youth when released.

Finally (and it really is finally, taking me literally years) finished the Greek Myths by Robert Graves and am now on to The Red Pony by Steinbeck.

Now about halfway through SHE'S LEAVING HOME by William Shaw, the first book in the author's Breen & Tozer mystery series.

Originally published in the U.K. as "A Song From Dead Lips" the book is set in London in mid-October 1968. A dead woman's body is found in the shadow of The Beatles' recording studio on Abbey Road and a hard luck detective and a rookie WPC get stuck working the case, and with each other.

I have to say I am really enjoying the novel, so much so that I think I am going to track down the rest of the series at my local bookstores and libraries.

BORN ON A MOUNTAINTOP by Bob Thompson

A biography of Davy Crockett, a childhood hero of mine. The book promises to penetrate the mythology as much as possible.

Already learned Crockett preferred to be called David.

Now going a bit retro, back to 1988, with this Pulitzer Prize nominee.

Just over halfway through it and I am really enjoying the ride. Highly recommended for those popular science readers out there on the JBF.
