    I got six more Louis L’Amours yesterday. I started “Conagher” last night. It was also a good movie.

    I just finished Robert B. Parker's Ceremony, part of the Spenser series, which I have read most of and have decided to go back and do in its entirety and in order.
    I am just starting Sniper Elite - One Way Trip by Scott McEwen, who wrote American Sniper. So far pretty okay.

    I'm currently reading 'Tunesmith: Inside the Art of Songwriting' by Jimmy Webb. It's really good for anyone who's interested in songs, songwriters, and songwriting.

    All my life I had it as a goal to read the whole Bible cover to cover. I got a late start but so far I have read from Genesis to Matthew which I guess means Iʻm over 3/4 ways to my goal!

    My Hawaiian is very rusty but my next book will be Ka Baibala Hemolele.

    Today I started at the beginning of my old, old two volume set of The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I’ve had the set since I was a boy, and I’ve read it through more than once. I’ve also picked many of the stories to read over and over. To me Basil Rathbone is Holmes, and Nigel Bruce is Dr. Watson. I’ve seen the movies many times. Conan Doyle’s relaxed narrative is a treat to read. I’m really looking forward to reading the stories yet another time.

    Patriot Games. I have decided to read all of the Jack Ryan novels by Tom Clancy, in order.

    That's on my short list.

    This is my latest read;
    Dodge City: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and the Wickedest Town in the American West
    by Tom Clavin (non fiction)


    Dodge City, Kansas, is a place of legend. The town that started as a small military site exploded with the coming of the railroad, cattle drives, eager miners, settlers, and various entrepreneurs passing through to populate the expanding West. Before long, Dodge City’s streets were lined with saloons and brothels and its populace was thick with gunmen, horse thieves, and desperadoes of every sort. By the 1870s, Dodge City was known as the most violent and turbulent town in the West.

    Just finished 'Waverly' by Sir Walter Scott, and about to start on 'Don Quixote' by Miguel de Cervantes. After that will be 'Gulliver's Travels' by Jonathan Swift. Those should keep me occupied for a while!
