Yeah, I like those small books that can be read entirely in 1-2 hours. I read each of them once a year. It's a great way to stay sharp as well as learn new ideas.

PTM, how did you like Lights Out? I just love Mark Steyn.


Spirit - I see you are also a fan of the Mother Tongue! Isn't it just a wonderful book? I recommended it on the "Speaking English" thread when it was getting a little contentious.

Would you recommend No One Here Gets Out Alive? I was never much of a Doors/Jim Morrison fan but like good biographies from that era.

For Factual Information... No Way. It's a GREAT read.. and alot of true stuff.. but WAY sensationalized..


Break on Through: The Life and Death of Jim Morrison by James Riordan and Jerry Prochnicky is GREAT though.. a little dry in some areas..

My Favorite is Riders on the Storm: My Life with Jim Morrison and the Doors by John Densmore - it "feels" honest.

The Mother Tounge.. GREAT book!!!!!!!

Sensationalized sounds good. I'll give it a read!
