I have so many books on my bookshelf to read it's not even funny.

I would like to get the two books by Barack Obama this year.

I'm currently reading this:

Playing off her bestselling Texas series (Texas Sunrise, 1992, etc.), Michaels ventures into a Vegas trilogy that introduces the Thornton dynasty but also revives the Coleman family of the Texas books. The new saga begins in 1923, when Sallie Coleman, saloon singer and prostitute, inherits a fortune from an eccentric millionaire. Determined to acquire polish and breeding, Sallie moves into her benefactor's mansion and hires Philip Thornton, a handsome tutor whom she eventually marries. The birth of Sallie's first son, Ash, is quickly followed by the arrival of her second, Simon, with whom she forms a deep bond that eventually pits the boys against one another. Before then, however, Philip's distaste for his wife's vigorous sexuality has propelled Sallie into a love affair with attorney Devin Rollins that's destined to last for decades. After Philip suffers a massive stroke, Sallie assumes responsibility for his care, losing her dream of someday marrying her lover. Meanwhile, her sons wage a rivalry that culminates when Ash's wife falls in love with Simon. Further plot bumps will keep readers on their toes, including a severe accident and the building of a palatial gambling hall. Michaels isn't a master stylist ("You don't know me at all, Ash. I'm not that stupid, starry-eyed girl you married 30 years ago"), but her characters are well constructed, with appropriately dysfunctional flaws, and she lays on enough melodrama to please a J.R. Ewing or Alexis Carrington. Major ad/promo; author tour.

[B]***Ok, I just copied this from Amazon and now I'm mad that I read it because it just gave away an affair and serious health aliment that I knew nothing about.

I remember reading afew pages from a site I 4got not so long ago, quite intersting. Donald Bogle is the same guy who made the Brown Sugar documentary/book. Anybody who's intersted in vintage black female actresses' history in Hollywood, Mr.Bogle is the way to go.

QUOTE
In Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, Donald Bogle tells–for the first time–the story of a place both mythic and real: Black Hollywood. Spanning sixty years, this deliciously entertaining history uncovers the audacious manner in which many blacks made a place for themselves in an industry that originally had no place for them.

Through interviews and the personal recollections of Hollywood luminaries, Bogle pieces together a remarkable history that remains largely obscure to this day. We discover that Black Hollywood was a place distinct from the studio-system-dominated Tinseltown–a world unto itself, with unique rules and social hierarchy. It had its own talent scouts and media, its own watering holes, elegant hotels, and fashionable nightspots, and of course its own glamorous and brilliant personalities.

Along with famous actors including Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Hattie McDaniel (whose home was among Hollywood’s most exquisite), and, later, the stunningly beautiful Lena Horne and the fabulously gifted Sammy Davis, Jr., we meet the likes of heartthrob James Edwards, whose promising career was derailed by whispers of an affair with Lana Turner, and the mysterious Madame Sul-Te-Wan, who shared a close lifelong friendship with pioneering director D. W. Griffith. But Bogle also looks at other members of the black community–from the white stars’ black servants, who had their own money and prestige, to gossip columnists, hairstylists, and architects–and at the world that grew up around them along Central Avenue, the Harlem of the West.

In the tradition of Hortense Powdermaker’s classic Hollywood: The DreamFactory and Neal Gabler’s An Empire of Their Own, in Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, Donald Bogle re-creates a vanished world that left an indelible mark on Hollywood–and on all of America.

This is what I need to learn. I tend to buy several books at a time but I'm getting better. I haven't bought a book in awhile.

If I bought a bunch of books at one time I would be less likely to finish a book if it started to drag.

I always feel obligated to finish any book that I start. If I had other new books waiting to be read I would probably give up on the current book and move onto the next. I'm guessing that is what you do lol?

Not really. It's rare that I start a book and not finish it. Typically, if I can't get into a book by page 100, I'll put it down, but that's rare. Usually, I'll try and stick it out, but it takes longer to finish it because I'm not as eager to pick it up.

The insider whose warnings about terrorism on U.S. soil went unheeded-and whose book Against All Enemies rocketed to the top of bestseller lists-now presents his first novel: an all-too-believable story of politics, oil, espionage, and the earthshaking consequences that may lie at the end of the road ahead.

QUOTE
Fans of Hardy's stereotype-breaking B-Boy Blues (1994) will welcome this sequel, not least because it picks up where B-Boy left off, with gentle, educated, conventional-English-speaking, upper-middle-class Mitchell and his homeboy lover Raheim, whose family doesn't know he's gay, who speaks rappish black English yet is well read and wants to be a good father to his son, Junior. Mitchell is still writing freelance, Raheim is making it big-time as a model, and Junior still worships his daddy. The plot unfolds a little less quickly this time, but Hardy continues to astonish in such moving scenes as Mitchell's meeting with Raheim's mother and former wife. Equally important are the revelations Hardy affords of the reluctance with which two black socioeconomic classes come together and of the gap between the black gay and straight worlds. These concerns in Hardy's fiction elevate it from the level of mere entertainment to that of the work of such classic socially critical American novelists as Sinclair Lewis.

Born to a Jewish father and black mother who divorce before she is two, Oreo grows up in Philadelphia with her maternal grandparents while her mother tours with a theatrical troupe. Soon after puberty, Oreo heads for New York with a pack on her back to search for her father; but in the big city she discovers that there are dozens of Sam Schwartzes in the phone book, and Oreo's mission turns into a wickedly humorous picaresque quest. The ambitious and playful narrative challenges accepted notions of race, ethnicity, culture, and even the novelistic form itself.

She wrote material for Richard Pryor too.

I have several books I'm reading at one time.

But the main one I'm focusing on right now is a book called Fishing With John by Edith Iglauer.

It's about a journalist (Edith Iglauer) who used to write for The New Yorker magazine and other outlets. She goes to Canada and falls in love with a commerical salmon fisherman, John Daly.

Theirs seems like such a beautiful love story.

Fishing With John was also turned into a Lifetime Television Movie, called Navigating The Heart.

My 1st attempt to read a black comic fiction...

user posted image

QUOTE
Trey Ellis's playful, irreverent, and uproariously funny debut novel Platitudes, first published in 1988, takes on conflicts within the African American literary community. Dewayne Wellington, a failing black experimental novelist, and Isshee Ayam, a radical feminist author, collaborate on Dewayne's latest sexist comedy. Alternately telling the story about the coming of age of Earle and Dorothy—two black middle-class teenagers, sex-starved in New York City—the battling writers sneak ever, and dangerously, closer to reconciling their literary disputes.
