I've been reading some of Stephen King's older ones recently. Salem's Lot, The Stand, It. Fantastic story teller.

My daughter has been a King fan for years, and we have given her some of his books.

At a resale shop I picked up a copy of the complete illustrated Sherlock Holmes.... for 20 cents! grin It is in excellent shape, so this will be my next book to read.

I would have to have close to the full stephen king collection in digital format, 64 of them. (EPUB) Easily converted to other formats.

The only one I've read so far is "Under the Dome"
I enjoyed it very much, been going to get into more of them but always some other book gets in the way. laugh

I've started a new one. I needed to clean all of the dead cowboys and Indians out of brain for a while. grin

Muhammad Ali By: Thomas Hauser

Only just into it, but so far I'm enjoying it very much, it's a book that I have trouble putting down.

Marciano was indeed great. wink


Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) was a great boxer, but I still have a hard time with his refusal to enter the service when he was drafted. Even Elvis Presley served, even though he was at the height of his career when inducted.

I agree!

How were you guys notified when you were drafted? We used to listen on the radio for our birth date, bit like a lottery. grin
They started from the youngest and worked up.
we had national service before that, where everyone was drafted, then it was abolished just before I was old enough to be called up. After that became Vietnam where it went on birth dates.

These days for Iraq and Afghanistan, it been regular services.
