I go through a book a week and have for many years, 2 years ago I got a Sony ereader, same as Kindle and others, the best invention ever!! I watch for the 50 cent weekends, the 2 for 1, the 3 for 1, 4 for 1 sales almost every other weekend and buy all kinds of books for next to nothing, also when I get tired and the eyes get week you can enlarge the print!
As for books, I read, James Rollins, Steve Berry, Kathy Reichs, Iam Flemming and all the other Bond authors, Jack Higgins, Stephen King, James Kohury, and just about aything else I can find.

Just finished Bear Gryll's memoir, Mud, Sweat and Tears and Running with The Kenyans by a writer with the Guardian in England. Also the Steve Jobs biography. Fortunate to have a city library with a really good acquisitions program and they do a great job with non fiction.

and of course Gringo's blog. :-)

Jack, I picked that up at the library and started it, but will have to finish later. It started off as a very good read.

Thanks - always a side interest - will have to pick this one up. Been so busy lately very little reading getting done.

FAN, that's a great read. Made me wish my journalism career had been 40 years earlier before the internet and corporate greed ruined the newspaper industry

There never is one book. I've spun through the following in the last 6 weeks. I can scarcely get through 5 pages before conking out at night but make up for it at 5:30 AM. I would recommend the first five wholeheartedly:

Empires of the Sea: The Siege of Malta, the Battle of Lepanto, and the Contest for the Center of the World by Roger Crowley

Castles of Steel by Robert K Massie (or why Churchill's WW I dud performance as First Sea Lord did not predict his later greatness)

In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin by Erik Larson

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

Shadow of Night
by Deborah Harkness (now suffering Deborah Harkness withdrawal until the third book of this trilogy comes out in a couple years)

Equal Rites
by Terry Pratchett (Discworld series -- supernatural weirdness not far off from the Hitchiker's Guide books. my first exposure to this author. clever & intelligent.)

current: Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin. Vampires on Mississippi riverboats? A hundred pages in, I'm not at all sure that this is up to his Game of Thrones books. I'll get through it, but I dunno...

next up: Trinity by Leon Uris. And probably Terry Pratchett again.

I am re-reading a first addition copy of James Michener's Hawaii. Rediscovered this copy while cleaning out the garage. Found a picture taken in December 1959 with me, my mom and Jim Michener. He was an old family friend while I was growing up in Hawaii. Finding and re-reading this book has brought back loads of great memories.
