The last two books I've read were written in the sixties. I recieved them a while back from a friend and just got around to reading them. It's weird reading about stuff that went on during that time since I wasn't even born. If what is portrayed in the books is true, I'm glad I wasn't...lol. Do you enjoy reading books from years ago? I think it's cool seeing the difference in writing styles and such.

I've gotta be honest, it's been so long since I've read an old book, I wouldn't know what that was like! And I was alive and well in the 60s and it was a fantastic time, let me tell you. Nothing like it. And probably never will be again. Anyhoo, which 2 books did you just finish? Do you remember their names? Take care.

The sixties were great You're right, I doubt anything like that decade will come again, which is too bad

Humm, it sounds interesting. I was born in 1973, so I missed the 60s entirely. I've heard others say they miss them before.

I just finshes reading a series of ten crimestories - about a group of policemen in Stockholm in the 60s and 70s. One book written each year for tenyears. The books are the start of a scandinavian crime tradition. I thought there would be lots of things that would remind me the books were so old. But no. Even if they do concern themselves with the present society and the difficulties of the time they could just as well been from this decade. The only thing that really gave them away was how they did their stalking. just imagine how difficult that was in the 60s: no cell phones

LOL. You know it would make a difference though. We are very dependent on cell phones these days. They are very useful contraptions!
