I suspect you might like the book I noted here as you seem to value the past as well as the future. Then again you might have read it already. 8)

It is a living Book that has no end as God is the Word and the word is eternal.

That Book is a long step up from cereal boxes JHawk. It is a Book of the many warts and scars that humanity has recorded and also of healing.

I just got done with a most entertaining book.

'The world without us.' by Alan Weisman.

I think Denni mentioned it somewhere before.

It's really chock full of intriguing ideas and info.

Example:

No one knows the 'half-life' of many plastics. Why? They've never broke down. They could be in the sea and soil and in the bodies of critters for decades...maybe centuries.

Very good read.

I have seen that mentioned elsewhere as well, the short and long term predictions were supposed to be interesting.

Just finished 'A Voyage for Madmen'.

It's a retelling of the imfamous 1968 Golden globe nonstop-around the world boating race.

Very curious read. Now I'm trying to figure a way to have a around-the-planet boat trip in a story.

I just finished Joshua Slocum's 'Sailing Alone Around The World'.

It's about....sailing around the world.

He was the first person to have done it alone, it is a good book. He's got a bit of wit that made fun reading.
