Books I am reading

Books worth mentioning I have read or am reading - Parenthetical "reviews" are simply MY humble opinions.

I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe (groovy, but not for the young)

From Altoids to Zima: The Surprising Stories Behind 125 Brand Names by Evan Morris (somewhat interesting but a bit short for the $)

Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella (still great - If you build it, they will come - So Much better than the movie)

The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren (potentially powerful in your life)

Darwin's Radio & Darwin's Children by GREG BEAR (captivating Sci-fi)

Parasite Rex: Inside the Bizarre World of Nature's Most Dangerous Creatures by Carl Zimmer (WOW - a must read! It'll change your perception of life & evolution)

Swamp Gas Times: My Two Decades on the UFO Beat by Patrick Huyghe (a little lame, not much meat, nothing new here)

The U. P. Trail, The Rainbow Trail, & Riders of the Purple Sage by Zane Grey (classic old westerns - read them in period)

Advertising for Results by G.F. Brown (hard to get into)

365 Meditations for Couples by Sally D. Sharpe, Editor (so-so)

How to Become a Rainmaker: The Rules for Getting and Keeping Clients" by Jeffrey J. Fox (rules to work by - not much new but good reminder)

How to Make Big Bucks in Your Own Small Business: Unexpected Rules Every Small Business Owner Needs to Know by Jeffrey J. Fox (see other Fox review above)

The 9/11 Commission Report by Thomas H. Kean et al. (interesting start, turns dry)

Why Men Don't Have a Clue and Women Always Neez More Shoes: The Ultimate Guide to the Opposite Sex by Allan & Barbara Pease (not so hot & quite sexist - why proprogate old stereotypes?!)
