The Ra Expeditions by Thor Heyerdahl
The Ra Expeditions
by Thor Heyerdahl
recommended for: Fans of adventure travel writing

After reading Kon-Tiki, I was hungry for similar kinds of accounts, so when The Ra Expeditions came out, I snapped it up. I enjoyed it, but not quite as much as Kon-Tiki. The first hundred pages were considerably more dry, basically describing his re ...more

Synchronicity by Joseph Jaworski

I struggled a bit with Synchronicity, but on the whole, it was very worthwhile reading. There were times when the author was too "out there" for me, though he might view some of my own beliefs in a similar fashion. At other times, what he learned and ...more

Jesus the Christ

An astoundingly well-written exposition on the life and doctrines of Jesus Christ. I first read this while serving as a missionary in South America, and it was so compelling I could hardly bear to put it down when it was time to go to work. This is a ...more

I have enjoyed most of the books I've read about long distance hiking, but this one didn't live up to what I hoped. It was an indie publication, and I try to give those the benefit of the doubt, but it read like a chronological listing of the same da ...more

Enjoyable light fiction for a Sunday afternoon. Its a welcome change from most of the fiction out there...heroes and heroines, no language issues, good guys act like good guys, and they win in the end. My children introduced me to this series, and I ...more

So, not great literature, but I have to admit I am a sucker for these kinds of faithful, warm-hearted, gentle Christmas stories. I enjoyed it more than I can say; it was an uplifting introduction to a family that I wish I could meet in real life. Som ...more

John W. Gardner
“An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity, and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.”
John W. Gardner, Excellence

Thomas Paine
“I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.”
Thomas Paine

C.S. Lewis
“Aslan" said Lucy "you're bigger".
"That is because you are older, little one" answered he.
"Not because you are?"
"I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger".”
C.S. Lewis, Prince Caspian

William Ewart Gladstone
“Books are delightful society. If you go into a room and find it full of books - even without taking them from the shelves they seem to speak to you, to bid you welcome. ”
William Ewart Gladstone

Thomas Paine
“Could the peaceable principle of the Quakers be universally established, arms and the art of war would be wholly extirpated: But we live not in a world of angels...I am thus far a Quaker, that I would gladly agree with all the world to lay aside the use of arms, and settle matters by negotiation: but unless the whole will, the matter ends, and I take up my musket and thank Heaven He has put it in my power.”
Thomas Paine
