John, I too share the passion for reading book(s). It seems to be a rapidly declining past time in a day of electronic gadgetry. While I should spend more time reading books (and my manuals too) related to our craft I don't. Personally, my genre continues to be deeply rooted in historically accurate WWII history and related biographies. I am taking a break even from those currently since I recently graciously received the full set of "Wiregrass" books from our old friend @Buckaroo...aka Buck Nall.

 

Rather than add sub-forums to each pertinent category, what about a single forum addition for "Books-Reading" or something to that effect? Within that forum, then sub-divide the various categories including one for manuals and also possibly include a General-Non-fiction? Just typing out loud here way past my bed-time...anyways my $.02.

Grandpa. Your $.02 is worth a $1.00.

First let me apologize. I gots no idea on how and why, my brain works (or doesn’t), the it does. This is a forum. Everyone reads! Okay I get why we LIKE pictures, but everyone reads! Sorry for the outburst. I finished my grilled chicken, salad for lunch, instead of my usual chicken parm sub, half a bag of chips. I had some wine with it. WHOOPPEE! I would love to see a whatever, devoted to reading. I MIGHT even follow it, and read me one or two of the recommendations.

John, great idea(s)!

 

I have read and re-read the books you recommended to me on the Shaker furniture.

 

Listing of the quality books here, recommended by the membership, would help to not waste money on sub-standard texts. It would, also, serve to help us prepare for projects that expand our talents.
