    I am re-reading Kurt Vonnegut Jr's Slaughter House-Five.  This is the 3rd or 4th time I am reading it.  It is a strange book I discovered in college, and have come to realize what I thought was a science fiction book was really a book about surviving World War 2.

    I am reading a book on the biography of Albert Einstein, written by Walter Isaacson; and also "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations," usually shortened to "The Wealth of Nations," by Adam Smith.  He is the founder of modern capitalism.  I just started reading both though.

    The Seminoles. This is a comprehensive study of the Seminoles (Native American tribe) in Florida. Sorry, I can't remember the author and I'm not at home. I am excited about all that I am learning. The story is so complicated that it can't be covered well in a text book designed for a sweeping account or even intense studies of the Seminole wars. Suffice it to say that half of what I believed from previous study is wrong. Oops, I pawned myself off as knowledgeable.

    It is the quintessential study of misunderstanding, poor communication and insurmountable differences between dissimilar cultures. Before the Europeans arrived, there were no Seminoles, only Creeks. I have always heard, even in Florida schools, that Seminole means run away. It is better interpreted as uncooperative and unsettled (my version). The Miccosukee is a slightly different tribe (another branch of Creek) who took a stand along side their relatives against the Indian Removal act. They never surrendered.
    The American Army never learned their lesson. To this day, they insist on sending a cumbersome expeditionary force (carrying entirely too much individual gear) into unfamiliar, difficult terrain after a fierce, well armed, skillful enemy who knows how to disappear at will.
    If I can squeeze it in, it will make a good hub, maybe I will be back.

    I am reading a book by a hubber; "What God Can't Do" by Jerry L. Lewis. I like Jerry's straightforward writing style from a perspective that, to me, is fresh. He uses age old words and terms in a new and unique way and writes in a story form. An enjoyable read!

    Dark Tower Series, Book One, Stephen King: this awesome fellow hubber buddy of mine wrote this incredible hub about it and as I am a huge SK fan, it was his hub that got me motivated to begin the Dark Tower Journey. smile

    I am reading Hunger Games. I want to see the movie, but I wanted to finish the book first. It's a pretty interesting story.

    I am reading "The Art Of Non-Conformity" by Chris Guillebeau. 

    I consider myself a non-conformist.  I can't stand following the crowd.  I am a "jump off the bandwagon" type of person.

    The author encourages the reader to live the life free from the demands of others.

    I highly recommend it.  Blessings, Sparklea smile
