Thread: Great Summer Read

  1. #1

    Default Great Summer Read

    A great little book titled "Amazing Gracie." About a deaf, albino Great Dane who started "3 Dog Bakery with the help from her owners."

    There are a lot of books out now about dogs. Has anyone read other books they would reccomend?

    I read "Marley & Me" and enjoyed that also.

    "Merle's Door" by Ted Kerasote is very good as well

    Nothing like a good, light summer read - huh, Joe?
    When it stops being fun, I will find something else to do with my time and money.

    Wow Joe, now that some light, summer, by-the-pool, kinda stuff!


    Since I graduated college, I just can't read anymore. I'm done readed out!
    If I got time, I'd rather train....but I don't mind looking at training stuff!
    I wouldn't call it "reading" though...LOL

    "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch ( should be required reading for everyone)


    "Under Fire" by Oliver North" ( interesting story of how one man literally got thrown under the bus) This book is been out for a while but a good read nonetheless

    Of all of them, Age of Sacred Terror would be a good one for people that want to know about the origins of this form of terrorism. I thought it fair and balanced. It seemed to me the book, written by insiders (naturally), was as equally critical of Democrat and Republican administrations. Rather refreshing, actually...

    Knowledge is power...or so said Sir Francis Bacon, anyway.

    I can appreciate a good serious read as much as anybody. and I agree that knowledge is power.......but Joe, How on earth can you concentrate on that heavy material with those girls in your avitar flitting around beside you at the pool?

    Does anyone else see Joe's choice of summertime reading materials and the scenery on his avitar in conflict?
