James Herriot's "All Creatures Great And Small"
Just finished the USN NATOPS F-18E/F Flight Manual, downloaded from the internet. Now all I need is a topped off Super Hornet.
The Crossing (Harry Bosch #20)
The Soloman Curse by Clive Cussler
AF(C)-1-1 U2C and F Spyplane Flight Manual circa 1967.
Wondering if the SuperHornet might be easier to fly than this black ops Pteranadon.
Apocalypse Watch by Robert Ludlum (audio book)
Left of Bang by Patrick Van Horne (e-book)
The Marlinspike Sailor by Hervey Garrett Smith (dead tree media)
Almost finished reading through this thread (will try again later).
Thought the variety of books was very interesting, and added a few to my Amazon Wishlist.
A few which didn’t seem to’ve been mentioned:
- Grayson’s Traditional Archery from Six Continents — I actually bought the reprint rights for this so as to have my own copy
- Ben Hunt’s The Flat Bow — read a number of his other books when I was a kid, and really wish I’d found this one
- Louis L’amour’s Last of the Breed
- the Gingery books on making a machine shop by making a lathe of investment castings, then using the lathe to make a better one, then making a drill press, &c.
- Barry Hughart’s The Bridge of Birds — A fantasy of a China that never was. Wonderfully entertaining and humorous, w/ some interesting things to say about love and humanity
- Oscar Oggs’ The 26 Letters — one of the first books I ever read — this and Warren Chappell’s books defined and informed my interest in type and typography — Donald Knuth’s Digital Typography (which I was able to find an error in and get a reward check for) is a great capstone. Folks here would probably find Michael Harvey’s _Creative Lettering Today_ of more interest
- Andy Rae’s Choosing and Using Hand Tools — one of the best books on hand tools for wood working
- Steve Perry’s Matador series (sci-fi) — a lot of fun, w/ some neat stuff about knives and every day carry
- The Adventures of the Mad Scientists Club — boyhood should be like that
- Divers Down: Adventure Beneath Hawaiian Seas — a book which defined my work ethic
- The Swiss Family Robinson — the mom’s bag defined EDC for me
- Hal Clement’s Space Lash — scary the problems which he predicted
- Jack Vance’s Lyonesse trilogy — the definitive book of Arthurian high fantasy
- Steinbeck’s The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights — if he’d only finished this, it would’ve become the definitive edition
- Timothy Zahn The Blackcollar — a sci-fi examination of special ops, and developments of sensor technology, w/ some interesting twists on EDC gear
Pretty sure people mentioned Heinlein’s Space Cadet and Starship Troopers — my life would’ve been much better if I’d read them in addition to Have Spacesuit, Will Travel and Citizen of the Galaxy (which was a great riff on Kim).
WillAdams : Nice to see another bow man!
Truth be told though, haven't drawn mine in far too long... do you hunt or do target?
Moshe ben David
Used to hunt, currently practicing in the back yard when I can find the time, hoping to get proficient enough to go hunting.
Should have added Jose Y Ortega Gasset’s _Meditations on Hunting_
working my way through robert crais books. have finished the cole/pike series which were excellent, now on hostage.
j.l. Bourne - day by day Armageddon: ghost run
Hemingway. The Green Hills of Africa.
Field & Stream, September 2016 issue
Right now, The Nightmare Stacks - Charles Stross. It's the latest Laundry Files novel.
If you are unfamiliar w/ them, think James Bond meets Cthulu mythos meets the unending drudgery of government bureaucracy. They are a treat.
Lecture power points and I have a few books I want to pick back up. Need to finish the Hobbit and Sand County Almanac. I'm sure anyone in the natural resources field has either read or heard of it, and if you haven't, go out and get it.

Love Schaeffer and this Lagavulin
My daughter is taking an advanced English class that she can get high school credits for, and a couple of the books she's going to reading soon are Fahrenheit 451 and Of Mice And Men. I've read and loved both, but long, long ago, going to read them again so I can help her with homework.
