Books I’ve Read: 8-13

This post gives books 1-7 that I’ve read. I’ve read some more since then.

A Short History of the Early Church by Harry R. Boer is a good short reference to the early church. The weird thing is the Greek philosophy in the book, which says that God can’t suffer. Apparently this guy thinks the Greek gods weren’t god? Don’t know. It’s possible the elite believed one thing and the general people another. The stuff that I knew about was accurate in the book.

Christine Wenger’s The Cowboy Way is a romance book I read. I expected it to be a continuation of another book, but it wasn’t. I have a theory on that and romance books. I’ll get back to that later.

Judy Duarte wrote Hailey’s Hero which I’ve also read. I liked it, but not enough to read it again.

I also read A Father, Again by Mary J. Forbes. It’s a very sweet story.

I also read Forgotten Son by Linda Warren. It’s a continuation of a story, but it’s been a long time since the last one. And it set up the next one, but that one’s probably going to be a long time coming.

Right now I am finishing a book I have re-read many, many times. At least 10. It’s by David Weber. On Basilisk Station is the first in the Honor Harrington series which has made Weber a best selling author. I recommended the book to my son and thought I should re-read it to check and make sure he could read it. It’s better this time, even though I know what’s coming. I actually remember when I first bought the book. I’d read it in the bookstore and decided to buy it. I got the book and read it at home. Then I called the publisher. Chapter 27, the pivotal chapter, the most heart-stopping, throat full chapter, was missing from my book. They sent me another and I sent this one back. –So if you read it before and thought it was missing something, maybe it was.

That’s one history book, one sci fi, and four romance novels. They’re fast reads, and easy. Sometimes I get in the mood for happy endings and romance novels always provide that. You can’t count on that with sci fi. Don’t look to Greg Bear or David Feintuch to give you happy endings.
