Talk show by Dick Cavett is very entertaining even though a lot of the people are from a generation before my time.

Come October: Exclusivley woodcock by multiple authors is my favorite woodcock hunting book period.

I really enjoyed that book, too.

Currently reading "Willpower: the greatest human strength". Pretty interesting/revealing book.

From trout to eels?  Might have to check that one out--never found eels all that appealing (unless they were cooked).

Reading [/i]Catch 22 now.  Ostensibly a comedy, but actually a little tough to get through.  Some very funny parts, but I don't think it was meant to be a comic work.

I'll be glad to send it to you when I am done. Just say the word.

Reading "Fur, Fortune, and Empire" by Dolin.  Chronicles the history of the N American fur trade.  About a quarter of the way through, so far a good book.

Just finished "102 Minutes", The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers, by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn. Fantastic book that renewed your faith in individuals and renewed your disgust at bureaucracy. There were some true unsung heroes in the former and villains in the later.

If no one mentioned it, "Wolfer" by Carter Niemeyer is just great.  I'm a third through it and look forward to every chance I get to read it.

I LOVE Catch 22.  Great comedy with a deeper undertone of what war does to men.  

After reading the book I realized that MASH was nothing more than a rip-off of this book.

Three recent books I have enjoyed:

Stephen Hunter - Soft Target - Abt. a terrorist attack on a US mall. Ray Cruz book

Dean Koontz- 77 Shadow St.- Abt. a "haunted" ritzy apartment house

Garth Stein - The Art of Racing in the Rain - Told from the point of view of a dog on his last day on earth, it's about his life with his owner, a Formula 1 race car driver wannabe.
