Of Books & Authors...

An interesting thing occurred as I attempted to address the “profile” portion of this blog. As noted my 1st posting ‘The Introduction’ this blog FIREWATER is a work in progress and admittedly a rough one at that. Thus far, that may be the only thread of truth throughout this experiment.
Anyway back to the “profile”. When something like this asks what my interests are or preferred books are, well I grow somewhat introspective. The clock ticks on and the evening is almost over. In fact that question caused me to wander the many different bookshelves of this part home, part private library (in fact I even photographed a few books during the wandering portion of the evening).
In any case the answer I came up with contained an inter-active element to it, in that I attempted to embed links to some of favorite authors into the answer. The “profile” portion of this format is not user friendly to that process. Learning thus by mistake it occurred to me to list out those same admired authors in a posting itself and add the inter-active links therein. Thus this posting. In the end quiet simple, but all in all part of a work in progress as I learn this media form.
Hope you enjoy whatever you are reading...

Almost anything by the following,

John Maclean,

John Grisham,

James Michener,

Lucia St. Clair Robson,

J.R.R. Tolkien,

Patrick O Brian,
