I HAVEN'T READ ANY BOOKS SINCE THE LONGEST TIME BUT I REALLY WANT TO GO GET 'ONCE A KING ALWAYS A KING' BY REYMUNDO SANCHEZ. THE SECOND BOOK OF 'MY BLOODY LIFE: THE MAKING OF A LATIN KING'. THEY'RE REALLY GOOD. IT SHOWS YOU THE LIFE OF BEING IN A GANG. IS THERE ANY OTHER BOOKS LIKE THIS OUT THERE? THESE ARE THE ONLY KIND OF BOOKS BY MAN LIKES TO READ AND I WANT HIM TO KEEP READING.

Seriously tragic account of a childs abuse at the hands of his mother. How "such things" were not discussed in "propper society" as late as the Seventies. His road to self worth and acceptance that what happened to him was never his fault.

He now speaks out for child protection and speaks throughout the country to motivate other abuse victims.

^^^^^I have read the first book...it is really nice...i actually finished it in 2 days...i want to get the other 2 copies......

Great book isnt it?^^^^

I am reading Mexico Profundo. Might be done by the end of the week but we shall see, maybe sometime next week, i take my time with them, especialyl since i read for the most part at work, with people talking all around and the scanners going off in the background.

But after Mexico Profundo, i will be reading "the autobiography of a BROWN BUFFALO."

I am reading Angels and Demons by Dan Brown the Author of The Da Vinci Code - this is a really good book so far.

Has any one read the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich ??? there are 12 of them so far - and they are about this woman bounty hunter - good stuff!!

Also I finally finished the Dark Tower series by Stephen King - I would like to talk to anyone who read those books and see what you thought about them. They really fascinated me.

Soooooooooo, what are you reading???

Chavela, I read "The Gunslinger" and, "Wizard and Glass", but it was years ago and I only remember it vaguely. Do you still have them? Wanna give em away to a devoted reader?? (Wink wink) But I remember immensley enjoying "the gunslinger". Especially the part where they are on a train gone berserk! That was good.

I just finished reading "City on a Hill: Parables of the Carpenter" by Kenny Kemp. The book centers itself around a young Jesus in the stories that would set the foundation for the parables given to his deciples once he begins to spread the Gospel. It's an ok read overall.

I just started reading Gonzalez & co trucking company..i think this is the title..anyways its about a woman in prison who reads stories to her cell mates, and finds a story about a outlaw english professor from mexico who comes to the US and has to take care of his daughter alone. so far its really good.

i just finished reading a funny ass political satire book by harmon leon called Republican Like Me,

leon infiltrates all kinds of rightwing and some "liberal" political orgs and then rights about how ridiculous and/or disturbing they r... it s pretty funny and reads well for those that think poliltricks r funny.


i just started reading Ready for Revolution: The Life and Strugles of Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture)

by stokely carmichael and ekwueme michael thelwell... it s a pretty good book on one of the most overlooked but important people during the civil rights and black power movements...i picked it up b/c huey p. newton talked a lot of carmichael in his autobiography and it intrigued me...
