I ordered several paperbacks a few weeks ago, and they arrived today. 'The Ultimate Visual Dictionary' (oooh, pretty pictures!) 'Eat This, Not That' (I'm interested in food and nutrition, so since I'd seen this book talked about on various news and 'junk sheet' shows, I thought I'd give it a look) 'Bulfinches Mythology' (Never owned it; always wondered what was in it that I didn't find elsewhere). 'World Mythology ane Legend (second. Ed.)' (Yep very interested. :) ) 'Physics of the Impossible' (Neat! Don't know the author, but it sounded interesting) 'A Briefer History of Time' (I like Stephen Hawking's work). Guess I'll be reading this weekend. :)

Welcome my fellow geek. I had forgotten Clan of the Cavebears. I actually took it out today to read it over the weekend. Thanks.

Unfortunately, most of my reading comes from Tech Manuals at work, or Tech Forums/Blogs, but still try and read from time to time... One of my latest pleasure reading was "Hearts West", True Stories of Mail-Order Brides on the Frontier. ROFLMAO, who says that internet dating is a new thing? It is just a new way of doing it... I also recently read "Yoga for Regular Guys", by the ex-Wrestler Diamond Dallas Page. And for all the macho guys out there, give yoga a shot. That silly bendy stretchy thing that the girls do... It will kick your ass, guaranteed!!! :o)

What a way to start the day. I have just learned I may be more Geeky that I knew. LOL. Coach, I also love that time period. All the movies, books...I also like the writers that start with time, before time as we know it. Clan of the Cavebears...and other writers that use that same way of writing stories. In fact, I have found myself this past year renting all the old movies on history that I can find. First all those from that time period, than the Old England, than American History, than other countries historys. So, I am now an official member of the Geeky Joy Club.

People may not remember what you say or do, but they will remember how you made them feel.

Geeks rule! I am jealous you have the time and opportunity to get in some interesting reading. As an English teacher, I read a lot. The problem is that when school is in session it is back to Shakespeare, Keats, Homer, etc...I am not complaining, but it does get monotonous sometimes year after year. My favorite literature is the British Medieval Period. I love Beowulf, The King Authur Tales, and mythology. I guess I am a geek too!

Hey, some nice choices. Some physics. 'A Briefer History of Time', I haven't read Hawking's books, though have read many popular science books on cosmology before his writings, even while getting a degree in physics. Hey, how can anyone read all those books?
