I re-reading a favorite, By Ray Martin - 99 Critical Shots in Pool, great info.
In the hotel last night I started re-reading Orwell's 1984. I haven't read it since college. Wow, it is all coming true!
Ministry Of Truth = Fake News media
Thought Police = Google, FB, & Twitter
I read it, now you are
I need one like that -- maybe after the civil war starts and I've shot my first *******.
Three to read
Brave new World
Long Range-CJ Box continued saga ans stories of a WY Game Warden
Fearless-.Blehm an inspiring story of a Navy Seal
18 Tiny Deaths. Goldfarb-story true of origins of Forensic Pathology in America
Start With Why by Simon Sinek
All supervisors at my work have been required to read this by November 15th. So far it seems pretty good.
Yes, I read those years ago. I think I will re-read them also.
This trilogy is on my list.
To Hell and Back by Audie Murphy
Just started reading this one yesterday. It's a true story about a group of WWII veterans who started an armed rebellion against a rigged election in a small town in Tennessee. Very appropriate for what is happening in our country right now.
The Pentagon's Brain, the uncensored history of DARPA. By Anne Jacobsen
Fascinating story of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration. They've come up with some cool stuff but also stuff like Agent Orange. They've have wasted billions upon billions of dollars. Not to mention instituting high tech surveillance on everyone in the country.
Scary stuff and somewhat dated having been written in 2014. I can only imagine the technological advances and billions of dollars they've wasted in the last 6 years.
Self helps for my current situation.
I can sum those books up for you in two words: Be yourself.
I'll let you know
Technicians guide to HAM radio.
I'm going to pig out on the air waves soon. (Broadcast license pending)
Every American should be made to read this book in school. If I could trust Hollywood the movie needs remade verbatim from the book.
Just finishing up Spain In Our Hearts by Adam Hochschild. I thought I needed to brush up on my Spanish Civil War history since we're barreling down that path.
Next up Midnight Rising. I watched Good Lord Bird on the tube and want to know more about John Brown and will be getting a book on Frederick Douglas. I can't believe a mini-series hasn't been made about him.
Less than halfway through, but very much enjoying, "The Berkut", by Joseph Heywood, 1987.
Very well written "alternate history" type book - At the end of WWII in Berlin, Hitler's death is staged and Hitler is smuggled out of the city. Russians, Americans, British all know something is going on, and try to find out what happened.
So far, very well written and pretty much historically accurate (the background, not the "Hitler lived!" thing....) from what I can tell.
Just started The Nutmeg of Consolation by Patrick O'Brian. It is book 14 of the Captain Jack Aubrey series (i.e, Far Side of the World). My library just got in the last 6 books of the series. I've been waiting a couple years to finish. It is an excellent series.
