Time to dig into some ‘Merican history! Two books on the same subject, the Lewis and Clark expedition.
One is factual and enlightening, the other is a whole boatload of magical brouhaha and is entertaining.
Gear up for the 4th of July by catching that seasonal spirit. (You’ll need time, UNDAUNTED COURAGE is a chunk of a book.)
Also on Google, Spotify, iTunes, frigging everywhere just search for it.
New episode here, about Neal Shusterman’s “Arc of a Scythe” series.
Book 3 comes out this year, so get reading!
New episode here, about superhero novels.
“Arsenal” (Full Metal Superhero) by Jeffery Haskell, no real content warning.
“Ex-Heroes” by Peter Clines, content warning for language, violence, and sexuality. It gets intense, but the story is really strong.
New episode here, comparing two non fics about introversion and extroversion. Good takeaways from both. 10 minutes.
New episode here, about books in the desert. One is a nonfiction with declassified information, the other is a glance at what would happen if SoCal suddenly ran out of water.
When people say “Keep on trucking,” it really triggers my Dad Joke Gene because that’s literally how I pay for my life.
This week has sucked, though. I broke a trailer that we needed for a job, forcing me to take a different truck, which got stuck at a port of entry because it wasn’t the right truck for the job.
We’re way behind on stuff now, so blah. But today the truck got fixed and it works great and we took it on a rescue mission up the canyon…
Perfect conditions for a maiden voyage with a GCVW of about 70,000 pounds. Long, slow crawl down the mountain, but we got it done.
Some weeks are just gonna suck. Roll with it, do what you can, and get back to work. The weekend is always coming.
Also I finished Mockingjay for the third time, beautiful book. Go listen to the “Brother Trucker Book Club” podcast, ep 005. I covered it there. Subscribe, download, all that.
