You've got some really intriguing titles on your shelf too. I'm particularly taken with OPERATORS AND THINGS, Revelations of a Schizophrenic which I'd love to read if I can find a copy & Voyaging: Southward from the Strait of Magellan By Rockwell Kent which I just put a hold on from my library. Regarding Voyaging, have you read Rounding the Horn: Being the Story of Williwaws and Windjammers, Drake, Darwin, Murdered Missionaries and Naked Natives, a Deck's Eye View of Cape Horn by Dallas Murphy? I read it very recently & loved it! I've sort of been considering an adventure to that part of the world but am becoming inclined to think that it might well be too much of an adventure.
Seven Years in Tibet was the book upon which the movie about the westerner in Tibet & the Dalai Lama was based. It's the true story of the German, Heinrich Harrer (if my memory is working) & a very good read. Builders of the Dawn was a great favorite for a long time. I actually visited an intentional community - Alpha Farm in Deadwood, Oregon - that I learned about from the book. Those others are just picture books as you said.
Thanks for adding me as a friend! I enjoyed your review on Wally Lamb's I Know This Much is True. I normally stay away from Oprah's books, but picked it up anyway because of my interest in mental health issues. It was a captivating and very moving story. The book is huge, yet it seemed to end too quickly. Right now I'm reading a light, fun werewolf story. Then it's either The Other Boleyn Girl or Blindness by Jose Saramago. You've got some fascinating books on your shelf and such a wide variety of interests!
Talk to you soon!
Hi, Will. Thanks for the friend ad. I'm not on as often as I like, but I do read....a lot! We share a lot of favorite books. Would love to chat sometime. I usually have several books going at once. Currerntly I'm reading "Pillars of the Earth", "The Other Boleyn Girl", "Still Life With Crows" by Preston/Child, and "Callahan's Key" by Spider Robinson. So far, probably my favorite book this year so far, has been "Hero" by Perry Moore. Have you read this one yet? Have a great day, Will. And thanks again for the ad. Hope to talk to you soon.
