So, once again, I found myself in Springfield with a little time before picking up my kids from school, and Hooked on Books is practically across the street from their school, and so….
I bought a number of books from the back room and the discount carts which were conveniently located in the philosophy aisle because it was raining outside.
- Adam Bede by George Eliot. I’ll let you know if he proves to be venerable.
- SEALs, UDT, Frogmen: Men Under Pressure by Darryl Young. To see how his work tracks with what Marcinko has been telling me.
- Seal Team Seven: Specter by Keith Douglass. Ditto. Or Ibid.
- Embrace the Suck by Stephen Madden. Strangely enough, this is not more of the same; it’s a guy who tries Cross Fit for a year.
- Non-Fiction by Chuck Palahniuk. We’ll see. It’s the author of Fight Club, so you never know.
- 21st Century: The Age of Sophia by Seiyu Kiriyama. I paid full, well, full used price for this book because it’s the intersection of Buddhism and Greek philosophy written by a Buddhist monk.
- Special Delivery by Danielle Steel. I’ve wanted to read one of her best-selling novels since I read her collection of love poems last year. If I like it, there are a lot more on the dollar cart at Hooked on Books.
It’s a total of nine dollars’ worth of time killing.
