Now that my commute is 27 miles each way, Jacki has been getting me audio books out of the library...so far I've listened to:
-Real Estate Riches
by Dolf deRoos
by Michael Hiltzik, which is about the construction of the Hoover Dam;
-Endurance, Shackleton's Incredible Voyage
by Alfred Lansing. Title says it all. I've heard of Shackleton's voyage and knew pretty much what happened and how it all went, but hearing it told through and through just puts it on a whole different level. Those guys were
-Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
by Dee Brown. I'm glad I'm done with this one because it was a sad and upsetting book and I think put me in a bad mood for a few days, especially near the end. Really nice book to tie all the stories together, though, of Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Geronimo, Custer and his last stand at Little Bighorn, and many other tribes, chiefs, army commanders and politicians of the time.
Today I started Why the West Rules, For Now
by Ian Morris. Promises to be a good book. I think on the level of Collapse
by Jared Diamond. Soon I hope to listen to Guns, Germs and Steel
by Jared Diamond as well. Pretty good way to spend my 40 minute to hour-long commute I think. Maybe I'll be as smart as DaveinDenver someday
