The other day, I completed my reading of President Clinton’s latest book Back to Work – Why We Need Smart Government For A Strong Economy.  In this book, President Clinton discusses his thoughts on how we got to where we currently stand economically, and his ideas for improving our sluggish economy going forward. First things […]

Now Reading – Back to Work

Late yesterday, I managed to complete my reading of Patrick O’Brian’s H.M.S. Surprise. (I’ll be posting my thoughts on it in a few days.)  The timing of me completing it meshed perfectly with my trip to our local library on Saturday to pick up a book that I was on the wait-list for.  The book […]

My Thoughts On Broke

This evening I completed my reading of Glenn Beck’s Broke.  In Broke Glenn talks about how bad our nation’s finances truly are and puts forward some very basic suggestions on how to fix it.  The first part of the book dealt with the history of our nation in finances, from the founding fathers to our […]

Current Events and Reading Choices

As I mentioned yesterday, I’m reading Broke, by Glenn Beck.  I also mentioned in that post, that the topic of Broke definitely has something to do with current events as our political leaders are arguing about what to do about our nation’s debt ceiling. That got me to thinking how current events may dictate my […]

Now Reading – Broke

As my brother and I are still reading William Shirer’s The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich in a discussion format, I’ve been reading a secondary book concurrently.  Now that I’ve finished Post Captain, I have decided to return to a book on my 2011 goals list.  Yesterday, I checked out from the library […]

My Thoughts On Decision Points

Last night before turning in for the evening, I completed my reading of President Bush’s Decision Points.  As I mentioned in my first impressions post, I was very much impressed with the President’s candor with all the issues he discussed in his book.  However, I can say with complete honesty, this candor wasn’t exactly what […]

My Foray Into E-Reading

Early last week, I finally decided to pick up an e-reader.  After many months deliberating whether I wanted to enter into the world of e-reading, and debating which e-reader to get, I ended up purchasing an Amazon Kindle.  I spoke some about my deliberation with e-reading here. I decided upon the Kindle after I saw […]

First Impressions – Decision Points

I’m about 50% through President Bush’s Decision Points on my Kindle.  I’ve found the President’s writing to be succinct and to the point.  So far he has been very forthcoming with details on the major decisions he felt he made early on in life, and during his presidency.  From quitting drinking, his decision on stem […]

My Thoughts On Pinheads and Patriots

Last night I managed to complete my reading of Bill O’Reilly’s Pinheads and Patriots.  It turned out to be a very quick read, hence why I didn’t write a first impressions post.  Bill’s writing and tone was as if he was having a discussion at either my dining room table or in my living room.  […]
