Home Blog Earthquakes Reading List Adventures Adventures by Date



After doing the morning's chores, Judy and I have lunch and then go for our afternoon walk that includes a stop for coffee.  When we return home, the remainder of the afternoon is spent by the pool or in the media room, where we each curl up with our books.  Sometime in February 2010, after becoming frustrated by the process of  choosing one book out of the 144,000 books at the library, I decided on an easier way to make my book selections.  The A. K. Smiley Public Library has a wonderful biography section located in the basement.  The books are sorted in alphabetical order by the last name of the subject.  So, I started with "AAA," and after I finish each book, I return to the stacks and move down to the next biography that grabs my attention.  After 6 1/2 years I finally reached the end of the alphabetical line.  In August 2016 I started reading the biographies of each U. S. President and one year later I had read about all 44 of them.  A book about Trump is still being written, by someone!  So now I'm back at the "AAA" of the biography section starting my second pass.

Here's what I've read to date.
