Just started The Dynasty by Jeff Benedict. I didn't see the documentary. I never knew how badly injured Drew Bledsoe was that allowed Brady to become the starting QB, that was just in the prologue. Looking forward to a good read hopefully. 20240513_121610.jpg
 
This one was a little disappointing. I was hoping for more detail about how Carson outfitted his expeditions, the gear he used, the obstacles he overcame … but this was a dry retelling of the less interesting parts of his life.

A red flag for me is when the author’s name on the cover is much larger than the title.
Ha! I guess that does say a lot. He knows his name and the name of the series will sell it and and isn’t as worried about the quality of writing.

It just seemed like he mapped out a plot structure and then wrote it as fast as he possibly could. Half of Joe’s lines are “Yup”.
 
Real disappointed in the latest Joe Pickett book. CJ Box just phoned this one in. Real bad.

Formulaic ennui has been Box's money modus for a good many of Pickett iterations. Hopefully 3" set up a Nate rampage worth my time and money...
 
This was an interesting history of pirates with a little sociological discussion thrown in about why contemporary audiences find pirates thrilling and entertaining.

For some reason I can’t attach the pic I took but I’m currently reading Horses Never Lie by Mark Rashid. It’s a fantastic read and gives some great insight to horse behavior and perspective.
 
Some books I read in May:

Great Rams II and III by Robert Anderson - Pretty expensive books, but worth it. Interesting stories on the history of sheep hunting that you won't find anywhere else. Will need to read the other books in the series if I can get them for a decent price.
Civil War: Fort Sumter to Perryville by Shelby Foote - The best comprehensive book on the Civil War I've ever read, but need to be in the mood and it is quite a time investment.
My Dearest Friend: Letters of Abigail and John Adams - A history lesson through the Revolutionary period through their letters, loved it
 
Just finished another Jericho Quinn (Marc Cameron) installment (Act of Terror)...the guy destroys more BMW and Ducati superbikes than Joe Pickett does pickups.
 
Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker. It’s an engaging book on the science behind sleep written by one of the experts. I’m learning a lot about it, and it’s impacting how I live my life in order to optimize my health. It’s not the kind of book to keep me sucked in because it’s so factual, but I’m enjoying it still.
