I recently got back into reading thanks to my Kindle Fire. I just finished the memoirs of Ira Wagler titled "Growing up Amish".

It's about a young man who leaves the Church to see what's outside the protected confines of the Amish community.

I rate it 4/5 Stars. It's a page turner. So much in fact, I had it done in three sittings.

I am a school teacher with a degree in Secondary English and aspirations of teaching literature at the college level, so one would think I am a literary snob or something close. Not so.

I am currently in the middle of reading Full Black by Brad Thor.

I just finished The Overton Window by Glenn Beck. It is one of the best books I have read in a while.

I've read reviews on Full Black. Sounds good.

If you like espionage/counter-terrorism types of books then you will like it. I have read every book by Brad Thor so far and I love his style of writing. It isn't all about killing and combat. He writes fiction from a more realistic perspective.

It's on Kindle. Might have to pick that one up next! Right now I'm reading the Dick Winters memoirs "Beyond the Band of Brothers". I'm a fan of the mini series.

I am currently reading "Never Die Easy" by Don Yaeger. It is an autobiography of Walter Payton. Interesting book in the way that it is written, due to the fact it was still in the process of being written by Payton at the time of his death.

Most recent book I read was "Bottom of the 33rd". The book is a fantastic recollection of the longest game in pro baseball history. What makes it such a great read is that it tells the stories of the players away from the field. Some of my work was cited in the book and I received an advanced copy. Worth a read if you are a baseball fan.

I teach 6th grade English and we just finished reading Tuck Everlasting.

Personally, I'm nearly done reading 1776.

I recommend starting from The Lions of Lucerne. His books do not follow each other step-by-step, but things happen in the earlier books that make things that happen in the later books make sense.

The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff, I absolutely loved it. Exploring Taoism using Winnie the Pooh, it was fantastic and a great way to learn about an Eastern philosophy/religion.
