    Just watched Hellier season 2 and finally got around to Visitors from Lanulos. Bob Lazar autobiography is next.

    I've sidelined the previous two books I've mentioned to read this:

    I've had quite a bit of interest in the Native history of my area for some time. Folks often say Americans don't have much history (relatively speaking) but this isn't true. My area alone has history dating back over 5k years. This book was written by Renee Laudonniere in the 1500s, he was one of the first Europeans to ever set foot directly where I live. The cover picture of the book is an illustration of an event that took place about 10min from my house. It's an absolutely amazing read.

    The natives in my area were actually taller and more fit than the Europeans. They lived about 20 years longer. This has been credited due to their diet (heavily seafood based, with grains as well) and very active lifestyle.

    Number 9 Dream by David Mitchell, one of my all time favorite novelists now.
    Fantastic read, even better than Bone Clocks.
    Reading him is like coming upon an oasis after a long time lost in the desert.
    He makes most other novelists look so puny and unimaginative in comparison.
    An Englishman who lived in Japan for 8 years, he has written a book about life in present day Japan that is better than most Japanese authors have written.
    And what an ending! Don't peek--you won't want to spoil it.

    The Red Book by Carl Jung. Some think he was going through a form of psychosis during the period he wrote this book. Certainly wouldn't surprise me judging by its content. Absolutely out there but really powerful stuff.

    Thanks for the reminder, Akasha. I have it here (along with about 20 other books in line to read) but had forgotten about it. Think that will be my very next reading choice.
    Now reading Multi-Dimensional Man by Jurgen Ziewe. I think someone mentioned it here in the out-of-body thread. Interesting book - should be done with it soon. Matched many of my experiences.
