Lots of Books

The Millionaire Next Door: The Surprising Secrets of America's Wealthy by Thomas J. Stanley - good concepts but a bit tedious due its academic roots; could be compressed into a much smaller book
The Geek's Guide to Dating by Eric Smith - funny book
Walk In Hell (The Great War series) by Harry Turtledove - this series keeps getting better or at least the story lines are getting more interesting
Breakthroughs (The Great War, Book 3) by Harry Turtledove - the last in the "Great War" trilogy; this one was somewhat anti-climatic
The Last Season by Eric Blehm - great book about the tragic demise of a long time backcountry ranger
The Left Coast: California on the Edge by Philip L. Fradkin and Alex L. Fradkin - similar to the Golden Coast with great pictures
Long 19th Century - European History From 1789 to 1917 by Robert Weiner - got the final set of discs and finished this dense but fun series
High Country (An Anna Pigeon Novel) by Nevada Barr- the first Barr novel in a park I have been to, Yosemite; this was more of an action thriller than mystery
Molecules: The Elements and the Architecture of Everything by Theodore Gray - great follow up to Elements
50 Physics Ideas You Really Need To Know (50 ideas) by Joanne Baker - nice summary of key ideas in physics
Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution by Professor Richard Wolfson Ph. D. - I often get stuck on some concepts of physics but this explained most of them; I will probably listen to this one again to pick up the stuff I still don't get
