On June 4th I reported I had started reading John McCain's last book The Restless Wave. I got about a third of the way through it and had to give up on it. It's too much about the politics involving the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not like the other books I've read by him. I was really hoping for something different since it was his last book written after he knew he had the malignant brain tumor that would end his life. I'll probably return to it someday but not right now.

So now I'm reading South of Broad by Pat Conroy. I've always enjoyed reading his books - The Prince of Tides; The Lords of Discipline - and this one is proving to be a good one. The all take place in the South. This one is in Charleston, SC which is a city I know about because I have relatives who live there and have always enjoyed visiting.

I read some of Stephen King's Dark Tower series many years ago when they first came out.  I didn't really remember a lot about it so I decided to read them all again,  I'm on book three of the series and I'm really enjoying it.  After I finish all 7 books, I'm going to read Herbert's Dune series again.  I read them when they first came out and even saw the movie but, like the King series, I don't remember a lot of the one's after the first one.  Figured I'd refresh my memory.

Hi Raven!

I know what you mean about reading books years ago but not remembering them well. I've gone back and reread most of the classics I had to read for school ... 40-50 years ago. Plus added some others which I never read.

I'd like to go back and read the books by Dick Francis if I had the time. He's the author that got me hooked on mysteries. Maybe one of these days.

Right now I'm reading The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every President by Chris Whipple. Eisenhower was the first President to have a Chief of Staff ... because that was something he was used to as a General in the Army. Kennedy didn't see the need but his brother Bobby, who was Attorney General, did some of that work also. From Nixon on they've all had a Chief of Staff. It's a very hard, stressful job and one that a person can't handle for much more than a couple of year. The book goes through all but the last one for Trump. I'm up to the Clinton years. It's interesting reading.
