    LOL Its like fishing in a barrell.

    I get how this kind of thing works here, on Pet Talk and it is OK. No worries.

    That said, i'm going to stand by my compliment. I really do think ES would make a fantastic politician.

    I organize mine in sections...

    - World History
    - US History
    - US Presidents - its own section
    - Columnist who also write books - Bill Bryson, Molly Ivins, Mike Royko, etc.
    - Cats
    - Women's Biographies/history
    - WWII
    - Travel
    - A small fiction section
    - Reference books - silly and not
    - Business books

    What's in your library??

    A lot of Dog, Cat, Bird, Insect, Reptile, Horse, Livestock, & Fish books with pictures in them. I have always loved books with lots of colored or black & white pictures. Then there are my golden books from when I was a kid, or more like I am still a kid at heart. I have a collection of historical fiction Laura Ingalls Wilder books & they have some pictures in them. Then there is the Dr Seuss books, Green Eggs & Ham & Marvin K Mooney are my favorites with a lot more colored pictures. There are some U.S. travel books with some more pictures. I have a lot of topo maps of the Rockies I have collected over the years. There are flower, weed, tree, & rock books with more pictures.

    My historical stuff which lacks pictures is mainly on the American Indian. Garrison Keillor is a favorite of mine I like his Midwestern humor. I have two dictionaries which I use A LOT. There is an outdated paper back on the U.S. Presidents & it has pictures in it too.

    Have you ever read "Blood and Thunder" by Hampton Sides ?
    An excellent book Bonny. I'm about half way thru it.
    Anyway, we'd best get off the topic of books, some may think we are illiterate or something.
    Does it have pictures in it? What is it about? Do I have to read it in the buff?

    If anyone is interested in a good 'reference' book about the words we use here in the states?

    http://www.amazon.com/Listening-Amer.../dp/0671527983

    I bought this years ago and still pick it up to glance thru it.

    It's a great book and good for some giggles about the language.

    1. Some pictures.
    2. American History
    3. No, you don't have to. But if you do, you'll relate better to the Indian chapters....you know...the massacres, plundering etc.

    The media won't do that, they just keep giving her more rope.( to hang
    herself )

    ps. One more thing re Ms. Palin, did your see this column about her Revere
    story? Column by Eugene Robinson & too good to miss.

    I'm a bit of a history buff. I love it. ALL world history. I have a vast library on many subjects, but History books would have to form the bulk of it.
    OOPS !!! Did I mention books again ???
    What (if anything) is taught in history classes in Australia about the American Revolution and Paul Revere's ride?

    It's very sad that grown men have to resort to using the internet to harass women.

    As a politician and member of congress? Weiner came off as being a little to cocky and I think the rest of his term will show he is impotent as a politician.

    And the way he stood so erect at the podium and gave that flaccid speech?

    He may not recover from pulling a boner like that.
    You got that one right on the head, RICHARD. A great big hand for you!

    Apparently about the same as is taught in U.S. schools about Australian history!

    What's in your library??
    .OLD nursing textbooks (1980s) that I should not be holding onto. They're outdated and I can get the information from a current book on the same subject, or sometimes on the Internet.
    .John Grisham paper-backs.
    .A Fodor's guide to Arizona that I bought for a trip to the Grand Canyon that didn't happen.
    .An old Walt Disney World guide.
    ."Mosby, The Kennedy Center Cat", "Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul" and James Herriot's books.
    .High school and college yearbooks

    And more
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
