But some of the premises that he issues as blanket statements are a bit of a stretch.
He does paint with a very broad brush. But I do not think he is entirely incorrect in his statements about how things have changed.

He had a series of them he wanted to lend me but the print was so darn small....I am totally OCD about germs and cannot take books from the library. I picture people taking them into the bathroom, licking their fingers as they turn the pages etc.

Its worth it.

Or you could go to the bookstore. They now sell the series in collector's packs. Three to four books per pack at anywhere from twenty to thirty bucks a pack. Or you can go to barnesa and nobel online and download them and read them on your computer. I first started reading his books about five years ago. I was so hooked that I read the first six books of SOT series in about a month and a half.

Lately the only reading I've been doing is news, it's very depressing, I don't know why I torture myself but I'm a bit of a news junkie, local/state/US/International the whole gambit.

That is a good one. I understand that it is to be part one of a trilogy. I have read every thing Follet has written and like all of his stuff.

Most of what I read is Fantasy or Science fiction - Lawhead, Llewellyn, Martin, Jordan, Eddings, Tolkien, Wolffe, Wiess/Hickman, Hienlien, Asimov ...


Currently reading the Robin Hood trilogy by Lawhead ... fantastic!

I really enjoyed that book and the movie.

Did you ever see that Seinfeld episode where George brings a book from the bookstore into the bathroom? So funny....

But seriously, germs won't live long on a book. A book is dry and not very conducive to breeding germs. Germs tend to like warm, damp areas. If you wanted to wipe the cover of the book with a antiseptic wipe it probably wouldn't hurt it but I don't think the pages will hold any live bacteria or virus for more than a few minutes.


As for what I read..........what ever catches my interest. True crimes, fiction, non-fiction, biographies, etc. Depends on whatever 'kick' I'm on at the time and whatever my looks interesting.
