NEW YEAR

It is 2006 and I hope everyone has a great year. With a new year we all have another opportunity to experience many things, and to learn many more new things. I am going to make a few suggestions on some books that may challenge and teach many people. I may add suggestions throughout the year. Here is the first list:


Iraq is going to be a subject that is talked about a lot in 2006. Here is a book that gives a first hand account of the struggles we are facing in Iraq.
