An article. Seems fitting, given where we're at.
Orwell, Huxley, and Us @ National Review, 10/25/20.
I just finished Encyclopedia of Western Gunfighters by Bill ONeil. sp?
Ever heard of Elfigo Baca? You will here.
The 4th volume of Churchills "History of the English Speaking Peoples"
^ Great series, and excellent history.
That name sounds vaguely familiar, was he in California?
Will have to see if I can find an audio version of that. I am a truck driver, audio books are way way better than most of what's on the radio.
New Mexico as I recall. The Bs were a while ago.
Good luck with the audio.
The Black Death by John Hatcher. No comment!
I have the complete Nero Wolfe series up next. Gonna take a while to listen to all of those in the truck.
You may find "Art Of War." by Jomini to be more realistic than Tzu's imagination.
Since I just bought a AK-47 I started this one back up, I read the first couple chapters when I first bought the book but didn’t read anymore.
My father's diary from 1942 and letters to home from the Pacific as a navigator on a B-29. Found them in his footlocker while cleaning out the attic. Married the day before Pearl Harbor. Sucked at piloting. Taught aerial gunnery. Math whiz. Found tiny island landing strips in the Pacific Ocean. Refused to ask directions to the St. Louis Zoo. That was Dad.
I sure would like to read that diary. I really like personal stories of the war. A navigator on a '29 flying across the water had to be good at the job. Not many landmarks between the Marianas and Tokyo.
I picked up two David Baldacci novels this week. I am about finished with the second one and I am not impressed. His writing style is fine, but the stories are a bit to fantastic (weak) for my tastes. I have been spoiled reading LeCarre and Grisham. I am going to give Alan Furst a try this next week. He came highly recommended.
I just finished One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest before I did my last rounds
Just got this one
The Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz for the second time. Escapees from a Russian POW camp in Siberia walked to India. Slavomir Rawicz was a member of the Polish military who was captured by the Russkys.
Haven't started any of them, yet, but just picked up a collection of various authors' works:
Edgar Allen Poe -- stories and poems
The Brothers Grimm -- complete fairy tales
Jules Verne -- a half-dozen of his best-known works
H.G. Wells -- a half-dozen of his best-known works
Lewis Carroll -- Alice In Wonderland, and various other stories
All leather-bound and of decent quality. The print's a bit puny, so there is that. But it should be a fun winter, re-reading many of these classic fictional tales.
