    I'm re-reading two of James Fenimore Cooper's "Leatherstocking Tales." I finished Deerslayer and I've started The Last of the Mohicans, his best regarded piece. I guess I will read the remaining three books, too. This all came about because I recently spent a long weekend by the lake of glimmerglass featured in Deerslayer which happens to be Lake Otsego in upstate New York.



    Edited to add that I've finished The Last of the Mohicans. I think I'll take a break from Cooper, even though there are three more in his "Leatherstocking Tales."

    For fun, read Mark Twain's scathing critique of Cooper in Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses.

    I was reading like a crazyman this summer Dale Brown and Tom Clancy books. I started a David Hackworth book about being a wartime corespondent. I also have a book on the plagues that have been happening in the world.
