May 2006

Hi folks!

Sorry that this month’s book picks are a bit late. Sometimes I follow “island time,” which means I update my book recommendations when “I land the time.”

I hope you are all doing well. I get to stay home for awhile, which means I am going to do a lot of reading. Since the summer is rapidly approaching, I have been gearing myself up by reading travel books, sports books and all sorts of eclectic titles. I just finished Stephen Ambrose’s incredible Band of Brothers. Let’s just say that I now have a huge appreciation for the sacrifices American heroes made in winning World War II, especially one Sergeant Winters (a.k.a. “stud of a soldier and human being”). I’ve been reading all sorts of golf books, including Tournament Week (John Strege), I Golfed Across Mongolia (Andre Tolme) and another Harvey Penick book. Did Americans just start having a bunch of random questions in their heads? I have been seeing (and reading) all sorts of books that answer life’s questions (e.g. Does Anything Eat Wasps?: And 101 Other Unsettling, Witty Answers to Questions You Never Thought You Wanted to Ask and Why Does a Ball Bounce?: 101 Questions You Never Thought of Asking). I have also been reading just about every book written by Patricia Polacco and Eve Bunting that I can get my hands on. They are two of America’s finest writers, and everyone should read their material.

Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.
