Another Graphic novel  Y: The Last Man

For the fantasy fans, I have really enjoyed the Harry Dresden books written by Jim Butcher.

Pat Conroy, "Lords of Discipline", "The Great Santini" and "The Prince of Tides".  Wonderful writer.  Prince of Tides is not really like the movie.  They left a lot out in the movie.

For fun, easy-read mysteries, Preston and Child, Agent Pendergast series.  Start with "Relic".   Their solo books are good too.

Favorite of all time: "To Kill a Mockingbird", by Harper Lee

+100 on Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and all of its sequels.

I can't believe I forgot about Wallace Stegner in my first post. Amazing author. I highly recommend, "Angle of Repose" for which he won a pulitzer prize.

Truly amazing piece of writing.

I started reading a book recently entitled "The Gods of Gotham" by Lyndsay Faye.  It is great.  The story takes place in 19th century New York at the very beginning of the NYPD.  Lots of history, very relatable characters (flawed, and believable)

I recommend picking it up.

    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
    • Jesus, it’s not just white people who are offended. Just because he isn’t doesn’t mean many more native Americans are not. This line of logic is just idiotic. 
    • I talked to my buddy, 100% Navajo, about this thread.  His response was to shake his head, laugh and say “Leave it to the arrogant white man to tell us what we should be offended by…” Just thought I’d share.  I’m sure the arrogant white men here will continue to tell him he’s wrong though…  😂
