I liked this book. It was fun to

Sunrise By The Sea

The book is a sweet, sappy, predictable romance. The main characters are not the same as in the first book in the series, although they are in this book. But this time, they're minor characters.

It was interesting and the pictures were good but some parts were a little disgusting.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea
by Jules Verne

View in Library Catalog



So much of this was Verne’s imagination when he wrote it but is real now. It’s hard to remember which bits were fiction in his day. There is a lot of engineering (not very interesting to me) and natural history/biology. Verne wrote it almost as a travelogue and it’s easy to forget while reading that he didn’t research by living several months in an underwater lab.

The Rum Diary
by Hunter S. Thompson

View in Library Catalog



This is not Thompson's best work. I can see why it wasn't published until 30+ years after he wrote it. But Thompson was an incredible good writer, so even his worst is so much better than other authors. The reader does his best, but it's hard to capture that manic self-destruction which is the core tone of all of Thompson's work. Jack Kemp is an aging (32) untethered journalist, tired of New York and Europe, who takes a job with an English language newspaper in 1950s Puerto Rico. He binge-drinks while swinging wildly between middle age desires (a home, a car, a boat) and disgust with the thuggish islanders and his weirdo coworkers. He wants to settle down one minute then he's ready to give up on PR and try South America instead. This is a tale of restlessness and discontent and fear of growing old written by Thompson when he was 22.

I got this book in Washington DC and it was phenomenal (the trip & the book). I enjoyed learning more about JFK and his family.

I enjoyed this book very much since I am such a hostory buff. It reminds us that just a little cahnge in plans can make such a difference. More fog, left New York on time, etc. would had made all the difference.

I read a lot of bois so I went to the stacks and looked for a book about someone I knew nothing about. When I picked up this book I did not realize the Bowling Green connection which I enjoyed since I lived in Bowling Green for 21 years and could relate to the streets and locations. I realized I knew nothing about Aunt Jane o went looking to learn more abotu this character. Also, this book reminds me that I am glad I was not a woman in the 19th Cnetury.
