Pulled the trigger on a Kindle. I got the book kind, not the poor-man's iPad kind. Now to fill it. Luckily, there are LOTS of free things I want.
John Buchan's Greenmantle and Thirty Nine Steps
Rudyard Kipling has some stuff I haven't read, but would re-read a bunch
H. Rider Haggard's Allan Quartermain stuff
Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan and Mars stuff
L Frank Baum Wizard of Oz stuff
Erle Stanley Gardner did more than Perry Mason, but I don't think the copyrights have lapsed yet.
I've had a bellyful of John O'Hara already and can dismiss him.
I've read a bit of H G Wells, Jules Verne, and Jack London, but not all of it. I've read all the Sherlock stuff of Gotta check on Baen, see if they have anything. But my focus will be on discovering postwar-prewar stuff. it'd be nice to have a Kindle with 1000 free books, all that I haven't read and want to read. And I would be obliged if anyone has some gems of free stuff out there for me to look into. Pulpy stuff is a plus. Cowboys. African Safari. Sea Tales. Old Skool Sci Fi. Doc Savage. That sort of thing.
Gutenberg Project doesn't have everything, but any PDF can be converted over to Kindle, but links to other sources will be appreciated. But just look at the titles on this page alone! Can anyone give me a 'must read' of Winston Churchill? If anything I will need wheat to seek out so as not lose it in all the chaff.
[gun content... almost none. I guess there is a lot of gun content in my reading list, yes.]
On life - It can be bittersweet. An 18th Century English folk ballad sung by Mary Chapin Carpenter. Doors open, doors close; only we remain sometimes. Fare thee ...
