It seems that by talking about it, it is considered advertising but I would love to hear from anyone who has read it.
It's an autobigraphy with particular attention to my 11 years in the Legion Parachute Regiment.
I haven't seen this title on any recent book lists. When, Where published?
Publisher?

I'm reading quite a few books right now. I have what I like to call Biblio-ADD. Ever since my time in University I need to be reading at least three books at once. I'm usually reading a novel or fiction collection, a piece of non-fiction (essays, criticism, history, etc.), and then a nice anthology (Pushcart Prize for example). And yes, I do finish them all.

I'm currently reading War Dances by Sherman Alexie, The Creation and Destruction of Value: The Globalization Cycle by Harold James and I'm including a link for the last book I'm currently reading because I thought some of you CD'ers might find it of interest. It's been an enjoyable read thus far!

"Midwives" was very good. IMO, so was "The Poisonwood Bible"; one of my favorite books of all time. I'll have to check out "Before You Know Kindness."

I was surprised by how much I loved "The Poisonwood Bible." I did not expect to like it at all and put off reading it for a very long time. I'm so glad I finally bit the bullet and read it because it is one of my all-time favorite books.

I think of it every time I see a cake mix.

I found it on Amazon with a quick Google search. No publisher info or publishing date listed. (Use the book's title in Google and look for an Amazon link in the results.)

Finished John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things, and I'm almost done with Stephen King's Under the Dome. Love both books! Highly recommend them both....
