Some books I have been reading, courtesy of the Los Angeles Public Library
Empires Of Trust by Thomas F Madden:
Most comparisons I have seen comparing Rome and America are comparing contemporay America to the Roman Empire. This book interesting comparison between the Roman Republic and the American Republic. An easy and informative read, with lots of easily digestible Roman history.
Patricia Brigg’s Mercy Thompson series:
This is a nice, contemporay urban fantasy. The focus is on a female mechanic who can change into a coyote. Well written, without all of the sex/death/agnst of the Anita Blake novels.
All of the above are highly recommended.No comments
Found via American Digest, mjs538 has posted Chartsweep which showcases 5 second clips of all of the #1 pop hits from 1955 – 1992. A wonderful compilation.
