Oh, you didn't specify you wanted to be bored to death. Thanks for clarifying, will help narrow my search.



When you get older, you'll appreciate history more. Damn kids!

Gordon Macquarrie. I bought this book for my buddy that went overseas. I started to read a few of the stories before I have it to him and I enjoyed it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/157223032 ... mdp_mobile

If you like dangerous big game hunting in Africa.
Death in the Long Grass by Peter Capstick or any book by him on Africa.

I just started reading the Bell Curve. I really like it. I'm sure that's exactly what you were looking for :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

Not kidding. Picked it up for $2 at Goodwill. Actually a great place to pickup a book.

I read a couple history books by Paul Johnson, I believe. I liked them. Not a big history buff, so take that with a grain of salt.

Why am I not suprised this is your recommendation? HOMO!


It's a book that I think a man like you would enjoy... I have only read the back cover while it was sitting on some girl's night stand.


Do you have a photo of this girl?


No, I'm not a creepy old guy...

In all seriousness if you like books about warfare (not history books) I recommend just about anything Tom Clancy. Be warned that all most all of them are longer than the Bible.

I'm reading Oil! by Upton Sinclair.

It's alright so far.

No, I have not read Jungle.

My lady got me the new Game of Thrones book for my birthday. Looking forward to dweebing out with that soon.

Considering my mom has been an invalid since she broke her hip 3 months before my dad died, I would hope so.

Hope you never head down here to the South. :wink:
