Read-A-Long with the Blur

In my time as a minor celebrity I often receive email wanting to more about me (mostly), the South Pole and Antarctica (sometimes). Let's stick with my strength and talk about me. I know my inner workings are the most interesting to my vast readership. So today I will give you a peek... What I have read since I came to the South Pole. I will only include books I wanted to read, not things I had to read (i.e. Microsoft Training courses, Cisco Manuals, How To - Soft Server ice cream machine). Here my list:

So feel free to pick one of these up and I'll be happy to talk to you about it. What I have I liked the most so far? I have to say the Clancy book and of course Bruce Campbell. The Bruce Campbell book is a fun read and made me laugh out loud. If your at the library pick it up. Hell buy it because people will want to borrow it. Of course mine is a signed first edition, so you can't borrow it. What's on deck? A bunch...
Domes of Fire - David Eddings
The Complete Idiots Guide to Trantra
Stonehenge Decoded - Hawkins
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon - Stephen King
Vengeance of Orion - Bova
Learn Latin

I have a rant but I'll make that a separate entry...

Hey, I'm impressed, I spent a fair amount of time in the library (ies?) and didn't think the selection was that good. Or did you bring it all???

Neal, No.

Bill, The books have been re-organized this year thanks to Tom Lohr. So the paperback selection is much better. I did bring down a couple and a couple were sent to my from Mother.
