What am I reading? I know your just dying to hear what I’ve been reading. Well you know how reading is, it comes in spurts. Sometimes I’m reading a lot and other times I just don’t have the time to sit and work my way through a book.
This is what’s going on right now.
HG wells – I have one of those books with multiple stories. I just finished “The Island of Doctor Moreau”. I love the style many of the old writers had. As a kid I loved HG Wells and I still do. This was a great re-read. Basic story is of a man found adrift at sea and taken to an Island where he finds a Doctor trying to create humans out of animals through vivisection. Written in 1896 it’s still quite good.
I’m also reading at Gene Simmons (KISS) Sex Money KISS. I don’t recommend discussing Gene’s thoughts with your wife or girlfriend. They probably won’t like it. Quote from book cover;
What will you say right before they put you six feet under? Will you say:
“I wish I would have.’
“I wish I could have.’
“I wish I should have…’
Or will you say, “I did it all. Thank you and good night.”
So far that pretty much sums up Gene’s Simmons philosophy.
It’s actually a good read so far.
On the night stand waiting to be read is Daniel Silva’s Moscow Rules.
The death of a journalist leads Israeli spy Gabriel Allon to Russia, where he finds that, in terms of spycraft, even he has something to learn if he wants to prevent a former KGB colonel from delivering Russia’s most sophisticated weapons to al-Qaeda.
