Book Review Summary

For the last six months or so, I have had ample amounts of spare time on my hands. There are two major reasons for this: 1) I finished school and no long spend my evenings working on school work and 2) I moved out of the good o’ fashioned college house to live by myself. This latter means there are no random beer runs or movie times with the guys.

Among other thing, I have been filling some of that time catching up on some ‘person’ reading which has been neglected while I was in college. For those of you who do not know, I absolutely love to read. I also love to learn anything about everything. Although the latter is my greater love, they more often than not combine their powers to form, what else, Captain Planet of Learning. So Captain Planet is here to explain to you I will be mentioning some of the publications I read on this site to not only tell you what I am up to and interested in but also to spark your own interest to experience the world as Captain Planet does.

This means you might see a few review posts in the next few days to let me catch up. There is no special schedule for these, so they may be mixed into the rest of the excitement which is my life.

Finally, I thought I would describe my reading pattern. To bring a variety to my life, I like to mix up the type or category which any given book falls into. There are three main categories which quite often are flexible and overlap: personal, learning, and work related.

Personal – Typically your regular novel. I particularly like classics or historical narratives, so you may see these come through.

Learning – Something to learn about, plain and simple. Categories may include financial, political, philosophy, science, or history to name a few.

Work Related – I get $200 a year to purchase books from Formos and plan on using it. I do not think these are overly interesting to some (or most) of you who are reading this site, so they may not get posted and come less frequently. You’re welcome.

I like to rotate between these three types, but never have the attention span to stay with one book at a time. In fact, I am ready three books (basically daily) right now.

I would love to hear what books you suggest too. What are your favorites?
