This weekend’s Book TV schedule is up.
I see that Sunday at Noon (EST) Chomsky (who is not dead) will be on talking about his 2003 Hegemony or Survival book that rocketed from obscurity to No.3 on Amazon after being mentioned at a United Nations meeting. Now you can see what all the hub-bub is about.
So Many Books is the reason I took to the whole blogging idea. I’ve been lurking there forever. It’s great reading, neat folks and I may have even learned something here and there.
Here’s a link to a post that introduces us to “video ads for books”. They’re fun to watch and yes, a tad addictive.
I just finished Jack Butler’s Jujitsu for Christ.
It was FANTASTIC! Just a well crafted southern tale dealing with some serious issues. The whole book takes place over a few years in 1950’s-1960’s Mississippi. Great characters and great writing. The dialect and depictions of southern concerns will have your side splitting at times.
Highly recommended for folks looking for an easy entertaining read.
