Great Books

Recommended Posts

I have been reading my whole life and two of my favorite authors are C. J. Box and all the Joe Picket books about a Montana Game Warden and John Sandford who has the Lucas Davenport cop series.

Anybody else read these? The Joe Picket books are very entertaining especially for anyone into hunting and fishing and outdoor activities.

I have not read those but I do read a lot.  I have an app that lets me check out library books electronically.  I try to keep a couple on my iPad all of the time.

Lucas Davenport and his buddy Virgil Flowers are always good reads.  John Grisham books are very enjoyable for me.  Tom Clancy (and his post death follow up writers using the same characters) are good.  Lee Child and his Jack Reacher books are good.

Good thread! Been reading William Tapply’s Stoney Calhoun books recently. There’s only 3 in that series but I’m liking them enough to do some of his others. 

Have about all the John Gierach books. Pick them up and read a chapter or two now and then. Have a couple stories I reread because I love them. Same with Sherlock Holmes. Been reading those stories since I was a kid.

i enjoy those as well. The Joe Pickett game warden stories are really good if your into hunting and fishing.

Once i read a couple i decided it would be better to read them in order. So i checked out Open Season and then read all 24 i think it was.

Franklin Horton's A Borrowed World series is one I just finished up book number 7 I think.  A post apocalyptic scenario that's not as gloomy a Cormac Mcarthy's The Road. 

Old Man's War is another great sci fi series by Frank Scalia.  A good way to just turn your brain off for a bit and burn through some space alien scenarios.

Been reading some Adrian Goldsworthy - he is a Roman historian and has written quite a few books on different subjects from that time.  It's pretty readable, written more for the layman than other historians.

And he does write some fiction, the Vindolanda series of which there are now 2 books with another due out soon.  It follows the adventures of a Centurion named Ferox stationed in what in now England.

Been on a mystery kick the last few months. Googled best mysteries of all time and got a few ideas. Currently reading Agatha Christie's 'And Then There Were None'. Interestingly, the original 1930's title was '10 Little (N-Words)', which was cleaned up to '10 Little Indians' later, then further cleaned up to the current title. 

One that came up on some lists was 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. Had heard of the movie, but didn't know of the book. Watched that the other night. It was exhausting and required lots of pauses to discuss what the heck was going on. Took a reading of the plot in Wikipedia the next day to tie up the last few loose ends. :D Phew!

That sounds pretty interesting. Fascinating time in history.
