RE: king james version: Holy Bible

It is just a story it has evolved over time with aditions added to help the male on the whole church itself and kings/Queens. In the earliest bibles Jesus never did rise from the dead, the book has been altered over time mainly to surprress the masses

RE: Oliver Stone, Peter Kuznik, Peter Berkrot: Untold History of the United States

Reading it right now. So far I've noticed he has left a whole lot of info off the table..
Namely the IKE years..he takes the Establishment line about McCarthy..
And in NAM, a subject you would think right up his alley, he just skips over Kissinger & Ford leaving all those men behind in Hanoi-- by re Negging on the agreement to pay for infrastructure...on account of all that illegal saturation bombing.

RE: John Kennedy Toole: A Confederacy of Dunces

I read this book and was delighted by it after hearing the author's story. Toole committed suicide in his early 30s, suffering from depression, in part from the failure to get this book published. From Wikipedia:

After Toole's death, Thelma Toole [his mother] became mired in depression for two years and the manuscript for Dunces remained atop an armoire in his former room. She then became determined to have it published, believing it would be an opportunity to prove her son's talent. Over a five-year period, she sent it out to seven publishers and they each rejected it. "Each time it came back I died a little," she said. However, in 1976 she became aware that author Walker Percy was becoming a faculty member at Loyola University New Orleans. Thelma began a campaign of phone calls and letters to Percy to get him to read the manuscript. He even began complaining to his wife about a peculiar old woman's attempts to contact him. With time running out on his term as professor, Thelma pushed her way into his office and demanded he read the manuscript. Initially hesitant, Percy agreed to read the book to stop her badgering. He admitted to hoping it would be so bad that he could discard it after reading a few pages. Ultimately, he loved the book, commenting in disbelief:

In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then a growing excitement, and finally an incredulity; surely it was not possible that it was so good.

Despite Percy's great admiration for the book, the road to publication was still difficult. It took more than three years, as he attempted to get several parties interested in it. A Confederacy of Dunces was published by Louisiana State University Press in 1980, and Percy provided the foreword. At his recommendation, Toole's first draft of the book was published with minimal copy-editing, and no significant revisions. The first printing was only 2,500 copies, and a number of these were sent to Scott Kramer, an executive at 20th Century Fox, to pitch around Hollywood, but the book initially generated little interest. However, the novel attracted much attention in the literary world. A year later, in 1981, Toole was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. The book has sold more than 1.5 million copies, in 18 languages.

RE: David Fryxell: How to Write Fast (While Writing Well)

Communication is the key to success. When hiring a custom writing service make sure that you communicate your instructions well. Without effective communication, you're likely to get an unsatisfactory paper. Luckily, most of these services will encourage you to communicate your expectations with your writer. Secondly, your paper must be plagiarism-free. This is a big problem in academics, as most content is rejected because it contains plagiarized material. That's why many people use an online plagiarism-free service.

RE: dan brown: da vinci code

The ideas in The Da Vinci Code are copied over from This Book: The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, which, though based on a true mystery about a priest, basically involves The Authors being pulled into a scam; The Priory of Sion, and is, also, full of unfounded speculation.

There is plenty of real dirt about The Church, and how Christianity was invented, which is Genuine History. You can find out about the true story of the creation of Christianity, from the original History of a dead claimant to The Israeli Throne, in Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth by Reza Aslan and Bart D. Ehrman's books especially in How Jesus Became God.

RE: hyemeyohsts storm: Seven Arrows

Agreed - beautiful book. Read it from a more Spiritual viewpoint of you can as it's not a 'Documentary'.
He has another book that is VERY unique. As far as I can tell was awritten 'autobiographically' maybe durring the Korean War(?) or maybe VietNam. The book is called "Lightningbolt"..Tried to find him but he seems to have disappeared.

RE: G.R.R. MARTIN: GAME OF THRONES /SONG OF ICE AND FIRE

The first Book was good. The second was a dismay, the third was trash and I never even opened the fourth.

Sadly, it was made into an ultra-violent TV-series, too. :-( Pure poison for the soul.

RE: Diana Gabaldon: Outlander

The first Book was okay, quite liked it; the second was a waste of paper, money, and time, which proves that writing sequels upon sequels is, in most cases, a HUGE mistake (see: "Andrews, Virginia C." LOL).

Haven't watched the series, as I don't like most of recently-made TV stuff (most of which is just gruesome violence, which I cannot bare to watch).

So…
Always double check whenever you put Like on something.
CS can be a dating site but also a site for people who have different interests to make friendships, exchanging the different cultures, hobbies, things…

Sorry, all the book lovers!
I wrote these lines as there are some jokers, or scammers…who want to put Like on your favourite books, that you want to share here.
So… book reading is not for jealousy or cheating…
Yes, it is for the good and good feelings, only!

And..
Books reading is a hobby for everyone, despite the facts where he or she comes from.

Plus, famous writers are from everywhere and their books officially published and translated in variously different languages. And that we should never forget and thanks to those prominent translators, who have done all the well-done jobs, as well.
So, we can read those books in our mother tounge and in foreign languages; all depend on our language skills. As long as you understand what’s inside the books and really enjoy the reading.

To give a Like in something is always easy but to learn and understand the meaning and beauty inside itself which is required a lot of works, time, interest, passion…etc…
So all the rest LIKE is heartless and meaningless.

RE: Jon Krakauer: Into The Wild

I haven’t read this book yet but well, have seen the movie few times. The character burned all the rest of his money then, left the city in order to discover the wild nature; dramatically, in the end, he died due to eating wrong, poisonous things which he found on the way, because of the hunger!!
The music in the movie, from a member of Pearls Jam is very touchy, meaningful and beautiful, as well.
