Just finished Finding Purpose in a Godless World - by Ralph Lewis. Gotta go back and make some comments...

Currently reading The View from Flyover Country: Dispatches from the Forgotten America by Sarah Kendzior. It's about conditions in American that lead to President Trump.

I also enjoyed In Cold Blood. As I recall right 'round the time I read it, they made TWO movies about those events. Strange.

Here's a book I have that appears similar to the one by the Dalai Lama above. Awake at Work: 35 Practical Buddhist Principles for Discovering Clarity and Balance in the Midst of Work's Chaos by Michael Carroll. First time I tried it I was in a job that was WAY too stressful, had to leave for self preservation. May be able to give that book another try now.

Post Re: What are you currently reading?
Trance Formation of America

A link to a pdf of the book is on this page:

http://mikesheedy.com/other-stuff/the-b ... d-control/

I've read excerpts from it over the years, but never the entire work. Mark Phillips wrote the first part and Cathy O'Brien the second. O'Brien was a sex slave and Phillips rescued her. I had trouble getting through Phillips' bad grammar, typos and wonky digital formatting, but I'm five chapters into O'Brien's story and it's much smoother reading.

Don't bother with this book unless you can deal with the topic. O'Brien pulls no punches.

The Thanatos Syndrome, by Walker Percy, a re-read. Heavy sodium in the water supply of a Louisiana parish leads to strange behaviors and detective work by psychiatrist Tom More, who unravels the mystery. Nobody creates memorable characters like these Southern literary geniuses.

Just finished "Educated" by Tara Westover and found it excellent. Some of it may sound like fiction, but I used to work in that area, and will vouch for it being truthful.

Recently purchased new translation of Amerika: The Missing Person by Kafka.

amazon.com/Amerika-Missing-Translation- ... ka+america

A few years ago I started reading this book, but I interrupted reading. This is the unique work that I did not read.
Being a big fan of Process and Metamorphosis, I feel myself obligated to read this book.

:omg4: I am reading this new book called Eero: The Pureblooded King. It must be new because not a lot of people are talking about it. I have already read it but I’m reading it again now. I just can’t get enough of it. I love the characters and the plot, I love all of it and can’t wait till the next one is out. Has anyone else read it or heard about Eero: The Pureblooded King?
