Anyway! Anyone else? I figure I better update with this a few times since not everyone will read every post. But I don't need a lot of readers, just a couple people who'll give some criticism so maybe I can pull it from the suckage ranks and make it good. Mabe it will be good. Maybe I'll finish it!
Required reading Part 2
I picked up the last stack of library books/research for the RFN. They are:
From the Terrorist's Point of View ( What They Experience and Why They Come to Destroy) by Fathali Moghaddam- so far this one is pretty dry but I need it the most so I have to stick with it.
Ghost; Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent by Fred Burton- this one is super exciting. It makes me wonder if he had a ghostwriter, which may be kind of mean, but seriously the prose is fantastic. This probably the second most important book I have to read.
Am I Dead Yet? A Journalist's Perspective on Terrorism by John Scully- this one has the stink iUniverse all over it. In a wierdly ranting bloglike preface the author basically says he wrote it for his grandson. But the book is thin and I can give it a shot. It's an angery book, and the anger so far seems to be aimed at the news media and the public's lack of education. That terrorism is part of a vast and long reaching historical perspective that goes far beyond a sound bite. The events of today are simply the repurcussions of events from , decades, even hundreds of years ago.
For fun reading:
Sweep books 3 and 4, Bloodwitch and Dark Magick. The more of these bnooks I read the more addicting they are. Like Wiccan crack. I'm on Bloodwitch now. Not too far in. I have all my required reading to read but the Sweep books are so fast and entertaining they are hard to put down.
Oh, and I just found the funniest comic ever! It's really filthy so be prepared! The whole thing is short vignettes often dirty and all of them funny http://www.oglaf.com/
