Buying a $75 worth of books every month is a lot? Ooooh, I must be a 1%er. You know... the 1% who can read. :p

While I prefer hard copy books, e-books that I can download for free from my local public library are easier in this pandemic.

Audio books are free from the library. They have an added advantage. If I don't understand the book I can always carry on about the narrator sucking big ones and never have to admit that I didn't understand the book.

Hitler In Argentina by Harry Cooper

President Harry Truman asked Soviet leader Josef Stalin at the Potsdam conference in 1945 if Hitler was dead. Stalin simply said, "No."

This is a conversation carried on from TLTE -

To all the haters that said Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged was no good, what’s wrong with you ? She’s a very engaging writer, and I’m loving it so far . I will update you on how I feel in another 950 pages :up:

The Rise and Fall of British Naval Mastery
Paul M. Kennedy


First published in 1976, this book is the first detailed examination of the history of British sea power since A.T. Mahan's classic The Influence of Sea Power on History, published in 1890. In analyzing the reasons for the rise and fall of Great Britain as a predominant maritime nation in the period from the Tudors to the present day, Professor Kennedy sets the Royal Navy within a framework of national, international, economic, political and strategical considerations.

The author is a specialist on Great Power struggles and he was tutored by A. J. P. Taylor at St. Antony's College, Oxford. His most famous book, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers, was on the reading list of the IR class I took in Cambridge. This is the most admirable aspect of British culture or history.

I just ordered $150 of books. First order in 6 months. I've found audiobooks online(FREE!!!), and those are pretty good.

I'm "listening" to Ender's Game- Orson Scott Card and reading The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.

I recommend the book, highly. I read it some 30 years ago, and forgot how good it was.

I prefer radioplays to audio books.
