My kids spent Friday night @ my parents’ house. So, when we went over to get them, I convinced my wife to stop @ the library. (She didn’t need much convincing. She’s a book lover, too). We’d used our down time Friday to catch up on some TV and had seen 3 episodes of The Rockford Files. When I was a kid, we always watched Rockford on Friday nights. It’s still my favorite TV show ever.
So, I got a copy of The Garner Files, which is James Garner’s autobiography. It’s one of those celebrity books – entertaining, but thin. He doesn’t spend that much time on his career and his family is largely absent. One boring chapter is all about his golf game.
Still, the pages turn with ease. I’d give The Garner Files 6 out of 10 so far.
On a more-promising note, my mother is reading Jeff Guinn’s book on Jim Jones and The People’s Temple, which is titled The Road to Jonestown. She said that it’s one of those books that you just can’t put down. My wife has also read it & said the same thing. So, that’s one that I’m going to read soon.
