  • What are you reading right now?

    What kinds of books do you like, and what are you reading now?

    I like just about anything, I just finished a book called, Mothers and Sons, (a book of short stories), and a cheezy romance novel, and before that, a book that my son had checked out from the library about a serial killer in Canada, (don't remember what it's called, lol).

          Just finished Paper Medicine Man, Before that Cheyenne Authumn, starting Warriors of the Plains.All library books. I'm trying to familirize myself in Native American life and customs. Just curiosity. I've read since 1st of the year, many of this same type of reading.! There seems to be a good supply of these books in library. But most of them are set in the 1800's, for time period. Some are later, but not a lot of later ones around. Setting up some modern Native American's type would be a good go I think. Just my opinion.GES

            Thanks! I'll look for it. Just heard about that, so I wondered where I could find out more.

              Sheesh! The library here in my town sux! I don't even go anymore, I have better books myself. There are maybe 3 books that concern Native American anything, and they're old and so outdated, and I'm sure they are all written by white people, lol!

                I'm reading two books at the same time. I'm reading "Lost Boy, Lost Girl" by Peter Straub and "To Die For" by Kathy Braidhill. I like paranormal stories and true crime.

                      That's a good one, I really liked that book. Have you read the next one by her? It's Ohitika Woman. I haven't read that one yet.

                        I'd like to get some of Alexie's books. Everyone says he's a great writer!

                            Right now I am reading a book by Vince Flynn called, EXECUTIVE POWER. Its a trashy spy novel, usually takes 2-3 days to read one. Its simply escape reading. Have books by Sherman Alexie. Also read a book by can't remember her first name but her last name was Robinson. She is from Northern BC, book is called, MONKEY BEACH. Its a good read, she was nominated for an award for Canadian writer's. She is an Indian.

                              Lakota Woman and Ohitika Woman weren't that great IMO...I love ANYTHING by Sherman Alexie, Toughest NDN or Ten Little NDNs....I also love Isabelle Allende.

                              I just read a really good book for my Cultural Anthro Class called

                              The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down
                              by Anne Fadiman.

                                Howdy All,

                                I was visiting my friend Running Grunion and I spotted a book in his modest library "Rez Dogs Eat Beans" by Gordon Johnson - Cahuilla/Cupeno from Pala Reservation, San Diego County. Great collection of short scenes of rez life, and other tales.

                                I hope...

                                ok. Why is it that whenever you happen to be a smart Native, the push is for you to be a nurse, a doctor, or pharmacist? Why is it that they tell Natives to go into some science field? What is wrong with not doing that? I'm smart as hell, and people have been telling me to go into the health field forever....
