Here is the killer interview with author Terry Reed -- who talks about his experience training Contra pilots in western Arkansas in the mid 1980s.

Reed describes the CIA operation -- and the drug connection. Clinton was then governor and was receiving kick backs -- millions in drug profits that were laundered through banks in Little Rock.

I have been reading "On The Road": The Original Scroll.
Just fished the part about him traveling out to Denver and his experience in LODO and sounds like Capital Hill. Fun to read about old Denver.

On The Road creeped me out for weeks after reading it but I loved the book.

"Elantris" is one of the best books I've read in the last 10 years!

Have you read the "Mistborn" books by Sanderson yet? They are also very good.

I finished up "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".

A little bit of a slow start, but an excellent read.

I'll be reading the other 2 books in the series.

Benjamin Franklin, by Walter Issacson.

Not a bad read.

I'm just finishing "The Wind Through the Keyhole" by Stephen King (Dark Tower 8, in between 4 and 5 in the timeline). Very good read, but not the best of the Dark Tower books.

Yes, not a good one. Actually, I reread the John Jakes series North and South. Loved reading it back in High School and will hopefully start to read Jakes' series that predates N & S. Big Series to read.

I pegged you as a Hunt for Red October/Red Cardinal kind of guy. I've never read North and South.

If you like history with drama, you might like it. His first books start from early 1700s I believe to Revolution and beyond. North and South starts before the American-Mexican War up to the South's defeat. When the mini series came out, it is when I became a fan of Patrick Swayze (Red Dawn didn't hurt either).

I finished up "The Girl Who Played With Fire" by Stieg Larsson a few nights ago.

Good read....I think I liked "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" more though.

Right now I am between two books, All the Pretty Horses by Mccarthy and Thirteen Days, a memoir of the Cuban missile crisis. Both are really good, highly recommended. I am almost done with the Mccarthy book, it started a bit slow but has been great toward the end. I have read The Road also, his books are awesome, highly recommend both.

Just finished book 12 of WOT and moving on to 13. It feels like I have been reading them forever but I am almost finished. Book 12 was great, really looking forward to 13. Then a 6 month wait until the final book comes out.

I started reading: 'Three and Out - Rich Rodriguez and the Michigan Wolverines - In the Crucible of College Football' by John U. Bacon.

It basically is a behind the scenes look at Michigan football and chronicles the 3 year era of Rich Rodriguez at Michigan.

It shows you the behind the scene politicking, factions, bickering, and everything else that the public doesn't get to see when it comes to big money college football.

Finished up the 3rd and final book ('The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest) of the 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' trilogy by Stieg Larsson.

All three were pretty good books.

I read this a few weeks back after reading a few posters recommendations.

Excellent read....if half of those stories are true, he lived about as wild and crazy of a life as is possible.
