I could talk about books about as long I as I can talk abut the Reds.
Re: dog books
- I always recommend "Nop's Trials" by Donald McCaig. Just an awesome book.
- My youngest just read "Ole Yeller" and it took about 2 days to get her to stop crying.
- James Herriot's "Dog Stories" is great too.
- And just thinking about "My Dog Skip" gives me a big lump in my throat. I'm a sucker for dog stories.
The one part of that book that fascinated me was when Adams and Jefferson went to England and spent a couple months walking the English countryside. What I'd give to accompany those two and just listen to their talks...
Re: Raisor and Clancy
- Man, you're a glutton for punishment. I've always wanted to go back and read them in order too, just didn't have the time.
- Clancy has a new book out soon called "Red Rabbit" that is from the "Patriot Games" Ryan era.
- And it's interesting to go over to alt.books.tom-clancy. Clancy participates from time to time.
- "Dreamcatcher" is pretty oogey but a good read. King has evolved to having a nice writing style.
- I'm about a 1/3 of the way into "Black House". It's really giving me the willies.
- And my son is reading "The Stand" now (the uncut version no less). He takes it everywhere we go. I had to tell him to turn off his light at 2 AM last night.
Re: Harry Potter
Just great books. I've recommended them to everyone, kids or no kids.
Summer time is a great time for reading. I sit out back on the deck till I can't see anymore (which is getting pretty late these days).
