Thanks for sharing those pics Mr. Coates. Looks like the binders did a beautiful cleaning job, and interesting to see a favorite author of my youth looking so young in 1929!

I'm reading about former player and coach Joe Lapchick.  The most interesting part about the book so far was the politics about the integration of the NBA.  Several of the segregated cities (in 1950) were against it, but by a slim margin integration passed and New York, Boston and Washington added black players for the 1950-51 season.

Just started this thriller by Mark Billingham. It is the first book in his Detective Tom Thorn series. I am trying to sample new mystery / thriller writers and I saw that he was a two-time winner of the Theakston's Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year (U.K.).

And, again, I have to ask the JBF managers if there is a way for this thread to be pinned for easier access.

Please don't. There are already so many pinned threads that they outnumber unpinned ones on the same page.

I would just recommend Googling the thread title along with Byrne Robotics and it comes up easily enough.

****

And again I have to point out that this is not so much a thread about books, but
a series of pictures of shitty book cover art with very little in the way of
substantive information or discussion about the books themselves.

I don't think it should be pinned, just not locked if people don't post in it for a while like other threads are.

Meanwhile, I do not have it handy at the moment, but I am reading a book of WW2 true stories from actual soldiers. And not all of them are from the Allies.

Just finished Andy Weir's most recent book.  If you're into the tech end of science fiction, I highly recommend it!!

Just getting around to Stephen King's 'The Institute'! Looks like it might have a lot of appeal to Firestarter and X-Men fans. Supposed to be fairly dark however.

I started this thread over a decade ago (gasp!) and haven't posted in it much since.  Shame on me!  I'm a book lover and have read a ton between then and now.  Life got in the way.

Anywho, here's a nonfiction book that I'm currently reading that I'm finding hard to put down:


I'm not normally engaged or enamored of WWI or WWII books, but this is exceptional.  It's a long forgotten piece of history that truly deserves a return to the spotlight simply because of the ingenuity of the escape plan set in the only time and place where it would succeed.  Highly recommended.
