You're welcome all.  It's very useful as it has different Bible versions, concordances, dictionaries, commentaries, and many other things.  It's really a great source.

I am reading "Lord of the Isle: The Extravagant Life and Times of Colin Tennant " .
It is about the life of the 3rd Baron Glenconner. The man who bought the private island of Mustique in the West Indies and was a good friend of Margaret. The man was neurotic, eccentric, mean, wife abuser, rude to others, though never to Margaret, and also a generous man.
He was notorious for his naked Mustique parties attended by Margaret  and very famous celebrities.

It's a pretty good book. I bought it and will be donating it to my local library when I'm done reading it.
He was a very, very strange man. I recommend it, the book, not the man.  tehe

Finished Argo by Antonio Mendez. What was interesting was the artistry, ingenuity, imagination, and creativity used. To learn about the author's artist life. The history. Pretty riveting. My natural curiosity had me looking up John Chambers (Jerome in the book) and others.

Becoming Light by Erica Jong. A book of poetry.

changeling by philipa gregory

the story and characters are a bit thin but apparently it's a teenybook so....

American History. Empire of the Summer Moon. It's about the Comanche  Native American tribe (my relatives  tehe) and the Comanche's "last" chief Quanah Parker. It's very well told (in the tradition of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee) and interesting.

Stefan Zweig The Royal Game/Chess story.

It is about a man who was imprisoned by the nazis.

Stefan Zweig himself fled from the nazis to England and later to Brazil. He committed suicide during WWII in the believe that the nazis would conquer the world.

^I love Zweig. I still have on my to read list his autobiography book but it's so sad that I cannot make me read it.

I am reading a couple of books at the same time, I just finished The book of tea by Okakura. Such a beautiful book, not exactly about tea more about the tea philosophy of life. And you can find it free on the web.

Also furious love about Taylor/Burton destructive love. Interesting but too much of the same and it gets boring. It also spoils you all their films.
