WOW! How do I list ALL my favorite books?
I have different
books open to read ( All of them active! ) in every room of the
apartment. At any given moment, I may change my mind and book. If I
walk in a room with out a book, I expect to have one of the ones
that are open in my hands unless I went in there for a
The list of author(s) is too long to list here. Here are just some
of them: Bowles,Miller,Doyle,Douglas,White,Weber
, O Henry,Dumas,Friesner
,Hogan and more.
These are just some of the friends that have made two moves with
Robert Heinlein - Stranger in a Strange
. I can't recommend this highly enough. I re-read it at
least twice a year. I'm not certain how you got this far in life
without reading it. GO NOW! Read it. Others I would recommend would
Glory Road, Friday, Number of the Beast, J.O.B.
, Oh, the Heck
with it! If Heinlein's name is on it, read it.
Spider Robinson -
The Callahan's Bar series, The Lady series and The Best of All
. The writer that carries the mantel of Mr.
Heinlein. Fun and thoughtful, the Bar and Lady series will expand
your horizons in trying to understand your fellow humans. *Warning*
Puns and Bad Jokes abound. I still want to live, or least, visit
the world in these books.
Christopher Stasheff - The Warlock in Spite
series. A secret agent with an ecliptic robot on a
planet with a medieval society that has elves and witches flying on
broomsticks. What more do I need to say?
Carole Nelson Douglas - Midnight
Louie series and The Irene Adler series
. One is a Big Black Cat
Private "Dick" who owns a PR Lady expert in Las Vegas that keeps
finding bodies. I know that Louie is smarter than me. The other is
the ongoing life story of the only Lady(or person) to best Sherlock
Holmes. She is living her life to the fullest in a time when so
many rules and mores was placed on a ladies actions, even their
very thoughts. A Must Read!
If you wonder why you found History boring in school, yet love The
History Channel and A&E, then you need to read - LIES my
teacher told Me
- by James W. Loewen. This will open your eyes
to the disgrace of how History is taught in school.
I will add more to this list as feel like it or when I find the
