Film Fanatic That Loves To Read

First off, that is me on the left (I'm pictured with my niece). Okay, I'm not exactly the biggest book nerd out there, but books have been a very important part of my life. It has helped me through things like, ohhhhhh, real life maybe. In my hours of triumph to the darkest of tragedies, books have always been important to me. Depending on my mood at a given time - like many of us - will depend on what kind of book I'm reading. Reading opens the mind and makes the world more understandable in its complication. Simply put, I love the world of books...........

Boy's Life

Boy's Life - Robert R. McCammon

Robert R. McCammon has only reinforced the knowledge that Southern writers have a great command of the language. And his masterpiece "Boy's Life" is proof. What a great read. Yeah, it took me a couple of months (hey, I got a job at the end of October and it has taken up my unemployment-reading time), but this book will stay with me probably for the rest of my life (I'm 54 by the way). Great prose, characters, and situations. Though it took me a few months due to real life getting in the way, I can assure you that once you start this book, you won't quit. I can't recommend it enough.
