lol the bookstore forum is practically dead. OK so I really like reading Westerns -- Lonesome Dove is one of the greatest books out there, and just as good are stories written by Lous L?amour (Last of the Breed is the best one imo.) As great as these stories are I think that this genre gets overlooked now a days in both books and movies. I guess it seems old fashioned and barbaric, and no one is interested in it anymore with the new frontier being space/sci-fi. But it?s really one of the most interesting times of American history with all the outlaws and very little law. This is starting to sound lame, but I wanted to know if anyone really reads them anymore and which books/authors you like.
