    Don't know if you folks know about Dr. Suess and his secret messages in the writing.
    Yup, Green eggs and Ham was the best.
    Like the jumprope songs told a story.
    Wish I could remember his real name...
    I think it was Theodore Geisel... Seuss was his middle name.

    I loved Dr Seuss!

    Re: Favorite Books!

    I just finished 'World Made by Hand', a kinda post apocalyptic novel by Jim Kunstler.

    Setting is around New York and Pa, along the Hudson.

    It's an interesting story, quick read, and he manages to get a little bit of everything in it.

    Happy ending! I liked it...

    Re: Favorite Books!

    Never been much of a fiction fan - have always enjoyed history/adventure/science reading. Picked up a Cussler book out of bordom while working third shift - I now own 29 out of the 36 (?). Thoroughly enjoy how he throws little bits of true history in with the fictional storyline. One of those reads that you can't put down...



    Anyone into naval history (WWII) - pick up a copy of 'The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the U.S. Navy's Finest Hour' by James Hornfischer. One of the best books I have ever read, hands down.

    Re: Favorite Books!

    To many favorites to list, here`s a few.

    Corey Ford (all of his stuff but especially the stories of the lower forty)
    Mel Ellis "Notes from little lakes" (Great read, especially on a quiet winter morning)
    McMurtry/Ossana "Zeke and Ned" (Loved it, not sure why..)
    Layne Heath "Deep blue"
    Michael Friedman , any of his Star Trek stuff (not a "trekkie" but loved all the books/series)
    Koontz the "Brother odd" books.
    Poe
    Ken Follett "Hornet flight"
    John Saul, all of his stuff.
    John Grisham, all
    Nelson Demille "Up country" (very good read)
    Tom Clancy
    Theodore Dreiser "Twelve men"
    Sidney Sheldon , most but not all of his stuff.

    That`s a small sampling of what I enjoy, I didn't mention "History" but love/read it all, especially Civil war
    writings.

    I have a very old copy of (1872) Mark Twain`s "The innocents abroad" but its in rough shape, almost afraid
    to read from this particular book but hate losing out on the style of the time by reading a newer edition.

    Wish I knew where to have it repaired for a reasonable fee.

    Re: Favorite Books!

    Here are a few of my recent reads that I've enjoyed.

    'Team of Rivals' by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Covers Lincoln's campaign for Presidency then how he put together his cabinet and their interaction up through his assassination.

    'Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer' by James L. Swanson. This book picks up where the 'Team of Rivals' leaves off. The hunt for John Wilkes Booth over the 12 days following the assassination.

    'Shadow Divers' by Robert Kurson. This book covers the discovery and exploration of an unknown U-Boat off the New Jersey coast.

    'Titanic's Last Secrets: The Further Adventures of Shadow Divers John Chatterton and Richie Kohler' by Brad Matsen. This book covers how John and Richie use their success with 'Shadow Divers' to discover parts of Titanic that were never studied and they solve what happen to the ship in the final moments before sinking.

    I also read Ken Follett's 'The Pillars of Earth' and 'World Without End'. These were my historical fiction treats to myself. They were written well and kept me interested from the beginning to the end. They were the first books I've read from Follett and I will try more.

    Re: Favorite Books!

    My favorite author is David Eddings. He has to be one of the best fantasy writers ever. My second favorite is Frank O. Dodge. He was my grandfather and has several books published. I like to read and do it often. I is my form of escape when at work and off watch.(when I'm not on the computer on Treasurenet...)

    I'll read anything by Tom Clancy. My favorite book by him is definitely Patriot Games.
