Quick catch up on books

All reading and no blogging makes for a backlog.  A blank page makes for writers block.  Apparently I need to hire a ghost writer.

  • The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw – Tom Brokaw tells the stories of individual men and women who came of age during the Great Depression and the Second World War.  Good book, maybe even great.  Not the greatest.  Like history?  Read.
  • Medic-16, Medic 16: Chronicles of a Street Medic by Mark Praschak – One of many “EMT” books read lately.  Why so many of the same genre?  Well, when you finish one, Amazon recommends another and if I can get it under my Amazon Prime deal, I’ll read it.  I enjoyed the book, but Mr. Praschak has some problems; issues with women and frequent and improper use of italics.   may need a ghost writer, but this man needs an editor.
  • Life, Death or Somewhere In-between: True Paramedic series by Patrick Ramsey:  You know, I’ve read so many Paramedic books lately that maybe it’s this author with the problems with women and italics. . . .
  • Memoirs of an Outlaw: Life in the Sandbox by Robert M. Tanner III – Stories on the Iraq War that focuses more on the personal aspects of war rather than exclusively on combat.  I love military history, especially when the author can write!  Good book.  Try it!
  • House Calls:  Stories from Thirty Years of Rural Medicine Among the Amish and English by Gary Yarbrough M.D. –  Title speaks for itself.  Sorry, but I mistook this man for someone who could write.
  • The I-5 Killer by Ann Rule – Like military history, I also love true crime.  –  Randall Woodfield cruised an 800-mile-long northwestern highway, the I-5 in search of victims.  Ann Rule is almost always a good writer.  Again, a book to try if you enjoy the genre.

I apologize for the perfunctory nature of today’s blog.  Please apply in comments for job of ghost writer.
