I'm off to church in a few, and then work, so the numbers are in a bit early today:

7. Tears in the Darkness, Michael Norman and Elizabeth M. Norman
The book is about the Bataan Death March in WW2, and specifically the experience of Ben Steele, a young cowboy, and it has a lot of his sketches. I worked with his nephew back in California and when the book was published, I got it from my friend (also named Ben Steele), signed by his uncle. It's not a fun, pleasant read, but much of history is like that.

23. Eragon, Christopher Paolini
I really love fantasy and this book, the first written by Paolini, is very good. It's the first of a series, and while I enjoyed the entire series, this is my favorite. It's the story of a boy and his dragon, and the author was only 15 years old when he started writing it.

As a side note, the random number generator apparently had a theme today - Montana. Ben Steele and Christopher Paolini are both from beautiful Montana, the Treasure State, Big Sky Country.

I hope you're all having fun playing Bingo - here are the next two numbers:

5. The Battle over Hetch Hetchy,, Robert W. Righter
Hetch Hetchy Valley had been compared to Yosemite Valley in its beauty, but California needed water and the battle was on. The environmentalists lost the battle and a dam was built on the Tuolumne River, flooding Hetch Hetchy. John Muir, a leading opponent to the idea, wrote, "Dam Hetch Hetchy! As well dam for water-tanks the people’s cathedrals and churches, for no holier temple has ever been consecrated by the heart of man." There will always be a battle between providing mankind with water and power and protecting our very beautiful and delicate environment. One of the many papers I wrote in college was about Hetch Hetchy - I wish I still had it because it was, if I do say so myself, quite good.

10. Seabiscuit, Laura Hillenbrand
It's about a horse - I love horses - 'nuff said. (I have two small Breyer figurines - Seabiscuit and Pumpkin.)

Re: My Bookshelf Bingo - Sept 29 - day six

Two more numbers for you:

2. Good to Go, Mary Pat Kelly
It's the story of Captain Scott O'Grady, USAF, an F-16 pilot whose plane went down in Bosnia in 1995. His experience and the mission to rescue him reads like a novel, but this is a true story of courage and determination.

28. The Yosemite, John Muir
Muir loved the mountains and valleys of the Sierra Nevada, and as a true explorer, naturalist, and environmentalist, he shared that love in his books. If you want to learn more (almost everything) about Yosemite, this is the book for you. In fact, I recommend all of his books - not only will you learn a lot about the mountains and natural areas he loved, you'll feel a personal connection with Muir, an environmentalist before we even knew what that was. He wanted Yosemite and other natural areas preserved and his work played an important role in the creation of the National Parks, as well as the Sierra Club.

That could be scary for the other players, however, because it might mean that you'll hit all of yours at once.

Re: My Bookshelf Bingo - day seven - Sep 30

Is anyone getting close to Bingo yet? Here are two more numbers that might help:

25. Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Jamie Ford
It's a story about Japanese Americans in Seattle and it's a love story, but not your typical one, as well as a story about forgiveness. I saw the book in an airport store, bought it, and had a hard time putting it down. I've always been interested in (and saddened by) the treatment of Japanese Americans in World War II and I think the author did a good job of describing the attitudes of the time.

30. Congress in Context, John Haskell, Marian Currinder, Sara A Grove
This is one of the books I'm currently reading - just because I want to know more about the inner working of the US Congress. For a text book, it's very readable (not all text books can make that claim, something all former and current students know). I've learned a lot about how the US Congress runs, which is especially interesting to me since my son's current job takes him frequently to Washington, D.C., and to Capitol Hill.
