Okay, going out a limb...I'm not quite right (normal) when I read...However...What about some good old fashion Sci Fi? "The nine lives of Dax".....Most of my Geek stuff is sci fi....Nonetheless I also have Albert Einsteins "ideas & opinions".....And Stephen Hawking's "The meaning of life"...Oh I also have Bubba's Bird Watching" ....Of course no shelf is complete without "Don't stop the Carnival"....And Gene Roddenberry's Biography....

Bird Watching with Bubba and Don't Stop the Carnival should be REQUIRED reading for everyone who even thinks about coming here.

I also really enjoyed Mitchner's Caribbean.

MItchner's Caribbean is fascinating !

Also give a try to "Pastwatch, the Redemption of Christopher Columbus". It starts in the future and ends in the past - postulating some interesting ideas about "what if's" in this region.

Hon, we LOVE John D. McDonald's novels, especially his Travis McGee series! Always an adventure and the Florida keys, sometimes Caribbean/Mexican settings are a sure-fire thrill. He's such an excellent writer. I think we have most all of his books.

Someone recently suggested I look at bookbub.com for free and/or discounted books for the Kindle and other e-readers. I don't know if "real" books are offered, but you enter your favorite genres and receive a daily list of books. This has been a great way for me to discover new authors and interesting books for a minimal cost. Bookbub suggests the books, but you go directly to Amazon to purchase. (I'm just a happy customer, not in any way affiliated with either website!)

I buy hard cover books on Amazon under the 'used' heading. I've never been disappointed.
