At the moment, that kinda fiery one by Suzanne Vega. I'm thinkin' it must be an audiobook.

currently re-reading Farming the Dust Bowl by Lawrence Svobida. Not only does it include great history of Kansas and the midwest, but the struggles faced by farmers during the dust bowl.

Hawaii by James Michener. I've also been reading God is not Great by Christopher Hitchens, but there's a lot of big words, so I have to keep my dictionary handy.

The book was boring, but Moby was quite interesting. Herman made more money off of that whale alive than if he had killed him. Which is something we should all think about. Everyone headed to the whaling grounds after they read that book and of course they had to go by ship and who do you think owned all those ships? Yep, good old Herman. I am happy to be able to report that Moby lived to a ripe old age, and even though famous preserved his privacy.

Hemingway's Guns: The Sporting Arms of Ernest Hemingway by Silvio Calabi, Steve Helsely and Roger Sanger.

From a .22 Colt Woodsman to a Westley Richards .577 Nitro Express double rifle, Ernesto had one of each and just about everything in between.

Measuring the World by Daniel Kehlmann, it is a novel about Humboldt the scientist. I have read all of Dean Koonz and did not know he had a new book out. I will definitely read that next. I average about three books a week and have done so since childhood. I cannot imagine a life without books.

CWGOKU,

I play a mean game of field/pasture golf.
When the spousal unit lets me use her semi-independent Commie-Bloc carry piece I can go under par. It is a fixed barrel blow back pistol, and it is dead-on-balls accurate. That 9x18 thumps those little golf balls pretty damn far.

I am approaching a period where I will have a bit more time.
I have a list built up on the Kindle.

77 Shadow Street, by Dean Koontz, after I finish that book, Kill Shot by Vince Flynn. I read in bed. It helps me go to sleep. Do Babboys sleep? Sounds like he needs a new wife. Golf is a good walk ruined... Mark Twain

Like the 4 billion times I answered this stupid question before when asked, I read a lot at work and do not have time to read for fun. I guess I do read some fitness and golf magazines but I do not have time to read a book.....

I mean who has time to read a full book?

I work somewhere between 60 to 80 hours a week depending if I am on the road or not. I have two kids, a wife that wants a different new car every other year and an aging near 47 year old body to keep in shape meaning I am lucky if I get to the gym more than twice a week and time to play golf, come on, I can’t even break 80 (which used to be somewhat common) let alone 85 (which used to be automatic) due to lack of playing

I guess I do not get the lifestyle that is so laid back they can read a book...... Just seems irresponsible to me...
