A little off-topic discussion for the thinking Bulldog (or any rival who'd like to weigh in). This summer has been the absolute busiest for me in many a year and for that I am thankful. I've only read two books since June. I finished Jon Meacham's Franklin and Winston, which is a superb study of the relationship between FDR and Winston Churchill before and during America's involvement in the War. It really reads like a love story. Prior to that I read, Neptune's Inferno by James Hornfischer. This chronicled the brutal naval battle at Guadalcanal in 1942.
Now that football season is nearly upon us, I'm looking for something besides a history lesson, quick! Maybe a great mystery or some good, old fashioned fiction. My dad "stole" my copy of A Feast of Snakes, which Kyle recommends so highly by the late Harry Crews who just passed away this past March. Once I liberate it (fat chance), I'm going to dive right in. Or perhaps buy another copy. What a
novel great idea! Anyway, what did you read and tell me why you'd recommend it, or not. I'm looking for one last "farewell" read before I start watching football Thursday-Sunday, and sometimes Monday with the occasional game on Tuesday. Do they even play on Wednesday?
