What I'm Reading (and why I'm reading it)...


Larry McMurtry (of Lonesome Dove fame) portrays life on a cattle ranch in post-World War II Texas. I like the imagery and detail of his writing and the way he puts his words together. I do not like the characters or the story. Judy and I are reading this for our exclusive bi-coastal book club. When we're finished we'll watch Hud (with Paul Newman), which was inspired by this short novel.

I'm reading Horseman, Pass By because Texas Monthly told me to. This book is #37 on their March Bucket List -- 63 Things All Texans Should Do Before They Die. And I'm truly Texan so I did!
