Here's a New Twist to My "Favorite" Subject

As I was declining my History Book Club Editor's Choices for this month this caught my eye. This is a new take on the whole subject of pirates. Yes, Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean. Maybe a new persona for Johnny Depp to adopt in the fourth installment of the series. I won't say much more, because I'm sure I'd run the risk of being slightly out-of-bounds, or maybe downright offensive. Needless to say, I don't think I'll be reading this one. I wonder if my messmates Mike Williams or Chris Grimes have run into any Jewish pirates during their travels in the Caribbean?

Messmate!

I have seen EVERY kind of pirate in my meanderings. To include a few Vampire Gothic space pirates.

Johnny Depp ain't got nothing on that...........

I knew you'd be good for a comment on this one, Mike! Next time we get together I'll expand upon the conversations I've had regading these Jewish pirates.

I just got back from Key West, wait till you see the blog entry for it.....-wicked grin-

Thank goodness! I'm not the only one to: a) belong to the History Book Club, and b) click on that title today! Ha!

Hi Jess! Why of course you are not alone. I have been a History Book Club member for a few years, though I rarely buy anything through them unless they're running some kind of special.
