Books I’ve Read….

I’ve read quite a number of books in my lifetime, I haven’t set any records mind you but I fully intend to read a bunch more before I leave this earth.  This list pretty much sums it up, although I probably have forgotten some.  Check out the ratings and forget the wondering if it’s good or not.  Why look elsewhere when the results are right in front of you.

***** excellent – Only other unread books keep me from reading this one again.

**** good – Pretty damn good.

*** average – Good parts, bad parts, ya know, average.

** poor – Don’t bother with this one unless you have absolutely nothing else to read.

* bad – I wouldn’t read this again with your eyes.
