I read several great books this year, but I’d have to say the best one was “With the Old Breed”.

3 books actually and I think every American should absolutely read. 'One second after', 'One year after' and 'The final day' all by William Forstchen. basically bout how our country and values degrade into chaos after an EMP strike on the US. worrisome and scary read.

I read at least 2 books a week, some serious, some just for fun. Tough picking a favorite for the year but:


Killers of the Flower Moon - David Gann Hard to put down, an amazing story most never knew

Books by Erik Larson- read them all most this year

Louis L'Amour - really enjoying his books- I use them for time filler, probably read 15 this year.

This thread brought to mind an easy to fulfill New Year’s resolution. I’ve decided to write down each book I read this year, along with a few words about them. Others have listed books that I enjoyed, but I thought I read them in 2017 or earlier. I’ll keep a book book

Thank you. A Higher Call is an excellent read.
