I found an old copy of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at my parents' home this weekend. It belonged to my dad when he was a young boy back in the 50s. It occurred to me that I've never read it and decided to check it out. I'll start reading it later tonight or tomorrow.

Cool!  I'm a distant relative of Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Very cool. I still have my grandfather's anatomy textbook from the 1940's. He never got to go to med school because he didn't have the money and got into the advertising business instead. I keep it as inspiration.

Did anyone else have the pleasure of enjoying the Freddy the Pig series in their younger days? Absolutely wonderful books by Walter R Brooks and all were illustrated by Kurt Wiese. Great adventures for younger readers, but still stand up nicely when you read them again as adults.

I've never heard of them Cosmo, but I looked them up on the net and they look amazing!

I'm reading a number of books at the moment.  I usually have anywhere from 3-6 books going at a time.

War of the Worlds by HG Wells (on cd in my car)

A Call to Arms by David Weber and Timothy Zahn (on cd when I'm working around the house)

Cauldron of Ghosts by David Weber and Eric Flint (audio on my iphone as I walk the dog or whatever)

Bookburners by various (an actual book book that I read on occasion before bed) - This contains 16 episodes, sort of like a tv series.  Each one is about 50 pages long.

The Mystery of the Million Dollar Penny (another actual book) - This is the fourth book in the Power Boys series.  This is a juvenile mystery series from the 1960s that I picked up at library book sales many years ago and never got around to reading.  They are simply okay, but read pretty quickly.

DeCarlo Rules

I think the last non-graphic story book I finished (a couple of weeks ago) was THRILL POWER OVERLOAD (40-year history of the British sci-fi comic 2000 AD). Histories of comics and publishers fascinate me.

The next book I'm chomping at the bit for I should have next week. It's The Art and Inventions of Max Fleischer: American Animation Pioneer, and it's a biography that I've wanted to see written by someone for a long time. Fleischer is in many ways "the other Walt Disney" (although maybe not quite as savvy in his business dealings), and has never really gotten the recognition or acknowledgement due him (he produced a synchronized sound cartoon prior to Disney's Steamboat Willie). Hopefully this book will help with changing that.
