Oh wow, I'd picked up a bunch of her books meaning to read them some day, although I haven't gotten around to it yet.

If this is true I really wish I hadn't bothered.

Can't quite seem to bring myself to burn these books. Just feels wrong after it being something I'#ve been against all my life. Will figure out some way of getting rid of them though. I am glad I got them second hand though so at least the author won't get any money from me.
Nooo, burning a book is a worse sin than killing a mockingbird.

I settled for just throwing them in the bin earlier. Seven of her books. Hopefully they will be recycled into something better in their next life.

And seriously, Mockingbirds are great on toast.

I would do, but I have a problem with the author being a child abuser. And they are all gone now, the bins were collected today.

I still feel wrong about throwing out books though.

I just finished THE BUNKER, by James O'Donnell.  Written in the mid-1970's, this is a detailed account of Hitler's last days, based on 500 hours of interviews with some 40 survivors of the Fuhrerbunker in Berlin.  Fascinating, repulsive, and pathetic, this account of the dying gasps of the Third Reich should be required reading for everyone who promotes the ridiculous lie that Hitler somehow escaped from the rubble of Berlin, made it past the entire Red Army, and escaped to safety in South America or somewhere else.  Lots of historical details, as well as almost amusing accounts of the lies, backstabbing, and power-grabbing among the pitiful remnants of the Nazi leadership that persisted right up to the last minute.

Looked for that at my libraries catalog, couldn't find that one but wonder how it compares to In the bunker with Hitler : 23 July 1944 -- 29 April 1945 (2007) By Freytag Von Loringhoven and Inside Hitler's bunker : the last days of the Third Reich (2004) By Fest, Joachim C.

Wow, three books on being in the bunker with Hitler.  (And I'm sure there's more under different titles...)

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

I've read Fest's biography of Hitler but I wasn't aware of the book you mentioned.
I'd bet that  the two more recent ones have greater perspective and analysis, while O'Donnell probably talked to more eyewitnesses.

Regarding your books: there is a chain of religious bookstores here called Christelike Uitgewers Maatskappy (Christian Book Publishers) and I will check with them to see if they have your books.  Smile
