As of today I have no books in the pstall queue. I'm open for some new ones.

 

No fiction though. I just don't like it.

I don't understand people that don't like fiction.

I like some non fiction books, but a good fiction book can be a nice little escape from reality.

Movies cover my fiction. I have read lots of fiction, don't get me wrong. I love the classics. I just prefer non fiction because I like learning something i didn't already know.

Ken Follett's "Pillars of the Earth" and "World without End" are of course classics, but his Century Trilogy is outstanding as well. Of course there's only two of them printed so far: "Fall of Giants" and "Winter of the World", with the third coming out in 2014. The first one deals with WWI and the second with WWII.

To go along with that.  Atocha Treasure Adventures: Sweat of the Sun, Tears of the Moon  By Capt Syd Jones.

 

Love just about anything to do with diving for treasure!

I thoroughly enjoyed Bugliosi s  AND THE SEA WILL TELL -  has a summer time flair to it as well.

 

Story centers around a disappearance of a couple in the south Pacific in the early 70S.  

 

 

I thought it wasd better than his book  -  Helter Skelter.
