RE: Great Reads
Lately the books I’ve been ready are Mother Gooose Nursery Rymes and other assorted reading material of that sort.(The grandson just turned one. He loves being read to besides looking and flipping pages in his books)

I used to take all sorts of shortcuts when reading a book to my friends's kids. It was always hilarious when they caught me doing it. LOL

RE: Great Reads
I hear you there. Bedtime became theater when I'd do all the different voices and make it too action-packed, thereby guaranteeing at least another hour before sleep or Hagrid needed another beer!

For you adults I highly recommend "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens. Great story and observations of the natural world.

It sounds interesting. Thanks, Brian!

RE: Great Reads
Grandson loves dinosaurs. My SIL’s brother is a huge fan of Godzilla and has started the grandson on watching the classic movies. Our next door neighbor’s have a lawn care and nursery business and last month had a family farm day. They had different vendors selling things. I of course had to check out the book seller and found a quite interesting dinosaur book.
One thing tucked away for Christmas for the little guy.

RE: Great Reads
At a slow pace I have just completed reading MYTHOLOGY, by Edith Hamilton. Copyright 1942. I thought I'd give it a go, because the boss (NEP) has written many lyrics on the subject, and I wanted to brush up and learn some new things. Wow, I had no idea there were so many GODS, n GODDESSES!!!

Trying to save the day for the Old World Man!

Yes, indeed. That must say something about our species' needs.

I just made it through the various books on producing the Beatles. George Martin's book, Ken Scott's book, and Geoff Emerick's were the three. Fascinating.

RE: Great Reads
Latest for me is Phil Collins autobio.
Wowsers, what a ride that one...ole Phil has had quite a mix of great stuff and terrible stuff.

I wish there had been a bit more substance about the first half of Genesis. It is breezed over quite quickly.
