Just finished Valiant Ambition: George Washington and Benedict Arnold by Nathaniel Philbrick.  Really good look at the interaction between these two and how close Arnold came to defeating the revolution.  Currently reading a novel titled The Sympathizer.  It's about the fall of Saigon and its aftermath.

Just started "Loon" a non-fiction account of a US Marine in the DMZ in Vietnam in 1968. Very well written.

The Holy Bible, New International Version, and yes I read it, although I've been backsliding the past month or so.

For the last few days the 16th edition of "Bartlett's Familiar Quotations".  From '96 or so, so it hasn't been bowdlerized too much by the PC police, which has probably happened with the newer editions.  A nice cloth bound copy I found at Goodwill.  It weighs about 20 pounds.

 

A big book of quotations is a handy thing.  To wit:

 

"If you don't like what's on my end table reading list, stuff it."  Baruch Spinoza

Yep, as do milk crates, beer cases and in my case tonight, the bare floor.

 

Fly Fishing With MacQuarrie, Gene Hill's A  Hunter's Fireside Book, and Pointing Dog Journal.

"Astoria" by Peter Stark, the amazing story of white settlement in the Pacific NW.  Another non-fiction tale of the exact same era and equally as good is "Sources of the River," by Jack Nisbet.  "The River of Doubt" by Candice Millard, it is "Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey."  Lastly, one of my favorites, "Journal of a Trapper," by Osborne Russell.  If you every wanted to get a good first-hand tale of what it was to be an early trapper, this is it.  Two of them are brand new to me and I just finished them, the others are old favorites.
