Summer of Sacketts

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Many decades ago, when I was in my teens and 20s, I read a fair number of western novels, including several by Louis L’Amour. However it had been many years since I read my last western. Until yesterday while browsing through the used book sale at the public library where I came across Sackett’s Land, the first book in L’Amour’s Sackett series.

I really intended to only read the 1st chapter last night, but kept on till the last page, some time after midnight.

I’ve decided that this summer I’m going to read as many of the Sackett novels as I can. Dostoevsky can wait till fall.
