I am just a mom of two who is desperately trying to get back into reading!
Read Randi, READ LIKE THE WIND!!!Suggestions:Start with lite reading like Superman and Archie...U can easily knock off 20 books that way...Then goto Vonnegut, I suggest his greatest work -Cat's Cradle-Stay away from books like Moby Dick and Silas MarnerBest to grab Louie and hit the Public Library as books these days are pricey....LOVEDaddddddd
My short list:Southern Storm--Sherman's March to the Sea---I just finished itThe 21 book Travis McGee Series by John McDonald---U will want to move to Florida after thatAll of the Micheal Connelly "Harry Bosch" books about 10Frannie and Zooey and 9 Stories by JD SalingerGideon's Trumpet---Can't Remember the AuthorUndaunted Courage---About Lewis and Clark's Expedition by Stephen AmbroseTed William's Autobiography--Pork or how I lost the Masters-- The funniest golf book ever writtenThe entire "Original" Chip Hilton Sports series--21 VolumesHow about the Nancy Drew Series also?----I read 4....Chick StuffStay away from hacks like James Patterson-Love---Daddddd--
Don't bother with Profiles in Courage as JFK didn't really write it....
I Robot is a great book---The movie stunk compared to the bookStay away from Das Capital by Karl Marx as his "Value Theory of Labor" is algebraically flawedEducation of a Golfer by Sam SneadAgathie Christie is a winner!The Conan the Barbarian books I found boringLetter from a Selma Jail by MLK is great and I would count that as a book.....***Love-Dadddd***
I just thought of another that U might like-----John Lennon's (of the Beatles) book called a Spaniard in the Works....There are two hysterically funny stories, one about a woman(?) who was always larfing [U will larf too] and another about a Budgie....This blogging is fun![Oh No! says Randi's friends, your daddd is blogging Run Randi Run!--Love--Daddddd
And remember no matter what yoiu hear James Patterson is the BOMBBBBBBBBB.....yr mother
Always listen to your Mother Randi.....A sad but true fact of life!!!!!!!-Daddddd-
The sad but true fact of life is however that I don't much care for James Patterson So I won't be putting him on my list this year.
Tammy and I have come up with a couple more suggestions. Have we ever steered you wrong? Dear Zoe by Philip Beard is good. It's also short, so you should breeze right through it. Whistling in the Dark by Lesley Kagen is excellent. The Dave Robicheaux books by James Lee Burke are very good if you want to try a detective novel. I just finished The Tin Roof Blowdown. It was great.
The true fact of life is listen to your mother-in-law...read Erma Bombeck for hysterical stories on motherhood. It will make you want a dozen or so...just kidding, it might be the best birth control there is....:)
