At Home by Bill Bryson

Another blast of a book from Bill Bryson. Lots of fun information about how and why we do the things we do. I listened to the audio version read by the author and it kept me company on a lot of very long bike rides around this corner of the Mediterra ...more

A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

This book is just about as much fun as is allowed by law while reading. I just wish that I had a better memory so that I could remember some of it. I read it when it was first published and when I read it again just recently it was as if for the firs ...more

All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy

I love this novel. I was this novel—or at least I tried to be back before I read the book and lived in San Angelo, Texas like the protagonists in the story.

I identified thoroughly with the boys in this book. At least I did in some ways. I, too, used

Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

Reading this book was like sitting next to a quasi-literate teenage girl on the train as she blabs into her phone about the after-school special she watched the night before, going into exhaustive detail of every mundane action of the characters with ...more

Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon

I’m a sucker for travel books. The thing to remember when reading this memoir is that he goes around the world on a motorcycle. I know that sounds obvious but the motorcycle takes center stage and almost everything else is background. It’s been a lon ...more

Aprende inglés en 7 días by Ramón Campayo

Hello. How are you? I am fine.

It is possible to learn a language in 7 days, unfortunately, not very much of it. Sorry folks, there are no shortcuts to learning another language. There is no "easy" method. I never use the word "easy" when I'm speaking

What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman
Rate this book
Clear rating
What I Was doing While You Were Breeding, an attractive title for any unmarried person but it would seem to me a bit combative and accusatory for those who are hitched up while fumbling with a car seat and a puking toddler. Basically the author tells ...more

I don’t usually push my reading tastes on others but read this damn book. Everyone! Over the course of my adult life I have probably read over 100 books relating to WWII. I won’t go as far as to say this is the best but it is a completely enthralling ...more

You may want to read Beevor’s prequel to this history, Stalingrad. Both books make for great reading on one of the most epic struggles in human history. Without knowing a thing about the Battle of Stalingrad a reader may have trouble understanding th ...more
