Audiobooks are a great way to get started.
We listen to those at work. Currently listening to the history of the English language. Really interesting
The last three books I've read:
Ben Franklin's autobiography
Hunter S Thompson - Kingdom of Fear
The Truth About Aaron: My Journey to Understand My Brother by Jonathon Hernandez
Leadership by Doris Kearns
The Fifth Risk by Michael Lewis
Just about to wrap up The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris - 10/10 read. The detailed analysis is beyond what i expected.
·Batman Noel...graphic novel that puts a Batspin on the Dickens classic...one of my favorite Batman Graphic Novels.
·Batman-Under The Red Hood...excellent graphic novel about the return of Jason Todd...killed by the joker with a crow bar.....and somehow has returned.
well written and beautiful art work.
I would love to read your thesis.on this.
Little Big Man / Thomas Berger - Most of have seen the western with Dustin Hoffman, but you should take time to read this one. It's one of the best westerns I've ever read.
The Final Frontiersman / James Campbell - The Heimo Korth story of settling Alaska. For me personally it's the American dream or the J. Buffett dream at least.
Buck, Buck, Moose + Duck, Duck, Goose + Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail / Hank Shaw - More or less a cookbook set but goes in to more detail about how to prepare wild game start to finish.
Been listening to audio books at work. Have had a lot of stuff where I have been doing pretty much data entry type stuff so it makes the day go by faster.
I had to go with what I could find free on youtube and I have found many Dean Koontz books.
And although I have either read all of them and listened to them before they are there and available so.
By the Light of the moon
Servants of Twilight
Just finished Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box (which I have read as well). Joe Hill is Stephen King's son and a good deal of his writings are short stories but his few regular books have been pretty good so far.
I enjoyed heart shaped box.
If anyone is into canoeing, fishing, and local Texas history (and the writing style of James Joyce) one of my fav books of all time is Goodbye to a River by John Graves. You'll be taken back to Comanches, pioneers, and every historical spot on the Brazos River on the author's last canoe trip of that stretch of river before it was damned off and those areas flooded. He makes an awesome case against "progress" and the greed that causes it. You can also order it on-line at your local library, they'll get it for you, and you can go pick it up and read it free.
I'm over half way thru cryptonomicon by Neal
Stephenson. It's taken me almost three years .
The Stench of Honolulu.
I am looking for recommendations on a really good book on Tom Landry.
