I love reading books! In fact right now, have a box full, plus two bags full, in the back of the van to bring to our library. Yeah, either I pass on the books to anyone around here who wants to read them or I donate them to the library. Which makes at times some fun reading, to go to the library and end up checking out books I had donated! Grandkids love that one.
Anyways, some books I now have. The first one I am now reading. And I have read all of Tom Clancy’s books over the years. And this one is so topical! Do read it!
Tom Clancy’s All-Star lineup is back. Jack Ryan, his son, Jack Jr., John Clark Ding Chavez and the rest of the Campus team are facing their greatest challenge ever.
Jack Ryan, Sr. has made a momentous choice. He’s running for President of the United States again and thus giving up a peaceful retirement to help his country in its darkest hour. But he doesn’t anticipate the treachery of his opponent, who uses trumped up charges to attack one of Ryan’s closest comrades, John Clark.
Now, Clark is in a race against time and must travel the world, staying one step ahead of his adversaries, including a shadowy organization tasked to bring him in, all while trying to find who is behind this.
Meanwhile, Jack Ryan, Jr., Ding Chavez, Dominick Caruso and other members of the Campus-the top secret off-the-books intelligence agency founded by Jack Ryan during his first term in the White House-deal with a question of their own: Why is a Pakistani military officer meeting with Dagestani terrorists? The answer will ultimately lead to a desperate struggle, with nothing short of the fate of the world at stake.
Next book up I will read is this one:
It is ten years into the future and the nation is nearing economic collapse. A professor of economics has convinced a small, but exceptional group to act. They believe dictatorial powers will soon be claimed by Washington’s political aristocracy. “Ours is the only form of revolution now possible. But it has an advantage. Our method requires only the lives of the individuals that have stolen our liberty, our lives, and our property.” Congress is given three days “to approve a Term Limits Amendment to the Constitution and send it to the people for their approval. Or the long term incumbents, unless they first resign, will be term-limited in the only way you leave us.” The Department of Justice begins a vengeful and bloody hunt for the terrorist group. But when the first senator is term-limited it is clear the terrorists will not be easily found. They are inside the federal government. In this novel, the same questions asked throughout history are asked again. Is deadly force justified to defend liberty? Who decides? Under what conditions?
And then the third book:
This is a fast-paced, action-packed thriller set in America at the beginning of a socioeconomic collapse. Although an innocent casualty of the chaos, one young man must discover his inner strength and defiant courage as he comes of age learning how to survive in the wasteland of failing services, unemployment, and violence. With the economy in free fall, the government crippled by indecision, the streets taken over by new political party’s, and the fragile institutions of civilization crumbling, a young man finds himself homeless and alone on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., facing certain death unless he can master survival skills he never imagined needing. Fending off violent citizens in an urban landscape that is gradually sliding into looting and mayhem, the protagonist emerges as an ultimate force of justice in a lawless land. This compelling, fast-paced novel pulls readers in and lets them experience firsthand what life in the United States will be like as its teetering society begins to fall.
Wife once in a while just wants to know how much I spend on books. The idea of hers is this now…for me to get my own Kindle Fire! Then buy the books and read them on the Kindle Fire. Which would save me a few dollars per book. But so far I have resisted because I love to hold a book in my hands, to physically flip the pages, and to bookmark where I end to come back later.

And thank you for reading my blog and this post. I do appreciate each of my visitors. And welcome you to come back to my blog often. And to ask just one minor favor….to click on any banner on the blog and any link on the sidebar, as those are my sponsors and affiliate companies. If you do buy anything, I actually make a little bit, and adding up what I made for January did pay for my hosting bill for this blog.
