TY on the heads-up about Ghostman...just put it on my to-read list. i've liked all of you recommendation s so far, and you give out 5's sparingly. i know what you mean about what you stated in a previous post on how you had missed posts coming to you...i got a note from yahoo.mail notifying me of your recent post to me, but can't find on Shelfari itself....
hope all is well w/ you new job...suppose close enough for the occasional sojourn to see Bob and co.
yes, 52! wow, can you believe it???
will await further book tips...i just finished The Good Guy by Koontz...excellent!
hey, john b!
ty again for the great book recommendations! you got me into reading non-fiction...now i have blended both worlds and i am am into the "historical fiction" genre...you can learn alot of tru history with the thrilling read of a novel.
i don't want to overhype it for fear of setting you up for dissapointment, but "Killer Angels" is a 1975 pulitzer prize winner about the battle of gettysburg (the the 1993 tv film was developed from that story) is a classic tale, getting in the minds of the principals. Wow, learning of history makes you appreciate soooo much how nice we have it today!!!
dark tide and swain's books were great! TY
i also bookmarked tou most recent read about the 2 miami lawyers.
also, decided to explore historical fiction novels, as it fits the fun/fast read of a novel with my desire to read non-fiction history.
BTW, you may enjot Beach Road by James Patterson...real quick read, and the main character was a B-ball player like yourself.
just finished a hiassen novel, and now reading swain's night monster. took a peek at your library and glad i did. TY
i knew hiassen was s. fla, but was pleasantly surprised to find night monster was same. i can visulaize the scenes in knowing where they refer to.
hope all is well!!!
john and betty still the same; 2 peas in a pod...
my dad, for ] 20 years, has been a volunteer teachers aide at the local elementary schools..2-3 generations of and. twshp. greet him everywhere he goes!
hope your mom is well.
i will let you know about "Lamb" when done...TY
