Nice work Adoptingjames

I’m reading Hemingway and Salinger: A Farewell to Arms and Nine Stories.  Also A Moveable Feast and an anthology: USA noir.  Anxiously awaiting the treasure cache of work J. D. Salinger is supposed to have left behind.  I didn’t read all of the best books when I was young.  I waited until I was 50 to read some of the greatest American novels.  It was fun savoring The Great Gatsby and The Catcher in the Rye after waiting all this time to read them, among others like To Have and Have Not.  I also have on hand The Sun Also Rises, The Last Tycoon, This side of Paradise, Brave New World, and One Lonely Night by Mickey Spillane.  Some others on my shelf:

The Day of the Jackal – Frederick Forsyth

The Odessa File – Frederick Forsyth

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – John LeCarre

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service -Ian Fleming

From Russia with Love – Ian Fleming

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold – John LeCarre

Tough Guys Don’t Dance – Norman Mailer

The Ax – Donald Westlake

The Bell Witch, An American Haunting – Brent Monahan

    Oh, hurrah! Somebody likes me! Sounds like a Charlie Brown routine. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Asian workers who assembled this beautiful laptop, without them, none of this would be possible. I would like to thank the creators of WordPress, for giving me an intelligent alternative to Twitter and Facebook. Everyone should read and write – every day.
