Great way to start the morning with coffee in hand
I figured I'd start a post about the kinds of books that I usually read.
Science fiction, a little fantasty, mystery, politics, historical, the occasional novel...
I'm very picky about my authors... sci-fi... it's hard to find a good, new (at least to me) author. Especially when you're standing in a bookstore and have little time to browse
But what am I reading now?
"Letters to a Young Contrarian", by Christopher Hitchens.
A small book that forces the reader to think about a variety of topics, usually political, in ways that are contrary to the norm. Hitchens is a brilliant writer with a full and strong command of the English language. Keeping a dictionary close at hand is helpful
I also like Sci-fi/fantasy. Terry Brooks, Tad Williams, Christopher Stasheff and Anne McCaffrey.
I don't do much for my self. This is the way I treat myself. Plus Its a way for me to relax and escape from this world and life and into another. Sort of like.. CALGON TAKE ME AWAY kind of feeling. I wouldn't give up my books for anything!!
