    Just started Adam Richman's (The host of Man vs. Food) book, America the Edible. Interesting writing style.

    Right this second I’m reading "Task Force Helmand" by Doug Beattie. It a book about real life events that take place in Afghanistan. I would recommend this book to anybody who has an interest in the military, or anybody who wants to read exactly what it's like to live life on the edge.

    Just finished "A Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron and cried all the way through it. Good story, but one you can't read in public unless you keep a box of tissues handy. (Or maybe I'm just soft.... )

    "Hope: A Tragedy" (black humor about finding Anne Frank as an old woman in the attic of a house the main character just bought) and "The Shining." Got to the point in the Shining where I couldn't put it down. Not even to go to bed at 1am when I had to get up in the morning. Got caught up in it.

    'Spencer Tracy - A Biography' by James Curtis of Brea, California. The book clocks in at 1001 pages and is packed with really interesting stories of Tracy's life onstage, onscreen and behind the scenes with Katherine Hepburn, among a number of others.

    Disney fans will find a number of mentions of Walt, Lillian and Diane Disney throughout as they were good friends of the Tracy's. They spent time together out on the town, at home for dinners and on the polo fields that were all the rage at the time. They are even buried near each other at Forest Lawn in Glendale.

    The most fascinating connection detailed in the book is Walt's role in the John Tracy Clinic, inspired by the Tracy's son John who was born deaf and created by his mother Mrs. Louise Tracy. She'd asked Mr. Disney to become a Board member which he'd agreed to and initially donated $100 dollars (!).

    After the first meeting in November 1943 Walt asked to see how the clinic worked for himself.
    He asked,"Don't they have cots?" when saw that the children there were sleeping on the floor at naptime. Mrs. Tracy said, "No, they just sleep on mats on the floor." The next day there wer cots and, at Christmas time, a truckload of gifts - puppets and toys, all Disney-licensed, that could be used in teaching.
    A benefit premiere was held at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre for the John Tracy Clinic that featured a short film explaining the clinic's mission.

    'Listening Eyes' was principally the work of Walt Disney, who funded the short for $12,000 and contributed it's director Larry Lansburgh. To control costs, students at the USC School of Cinema crewed and helped create sets, and the color stock was donated by Ansco. "He has been very interested in our Clinic because he has known John since he was a little fellow and was on our original Board of Directors," Louise said of Disney, "and yet it took him five years to get around to 'allowing' that maybe he could make a picture about us."

    I just finished The Hunger Games trilogy about a month ago. As I'm sure you've heard, it's absolutely amazing!! If anyone is worried it's a kids/girly/love triangle type story, let me assure you that it is not! It is a post-apoctalyptic dystopian story that follows one girl, Katniss, as she battles 23 other "victors" in what is called the Hunger Games. Once I started, I could not put the books down! I'm itching to read another great series.

    Currently, I am just beginning The Hobbit. I actually can't remember if I've read it before, or started and never finished. Either way, I do remember that I mastered Cirth, the ancient rune language used by dwarves, years ago when I first purchased the book, haha.

    Currently reading "Four Past Midnight" by Stephen King. It's one of his short story collections.

    I previously read "Duma Key" by.... Stephen King. It was weird reading one of his books that wasn't set in Maine like they usually are. This one was set in Florida, near the Sarasota area (King owns some property down that way). Was strange and kind of cool especially when the Tampa Bay area got mentioned... especially when I was reading one part about Davis Island and I wasn't far from the actual Davis Island when I was reading that chapter.

    After this, I have 3 more Stephen King books to read (Christine, Cell and Dome), but I want to re-read "The Talisman" again (the one King wrote with Peter Straub) as well as the Dark Tower series again.

    Can you tell I'm a Stephen King fan?

    The Saga of Laurten Crepsley. The prequel to the Cirque Du Freak series. Just as awesome as the CDF series. I understand this is the first in a new series.
