No wonder Republicans are a dying breed-
they are boring as hell.
Here are a few "excerpts" from the National Review summer-book recommendations
John Derbyshire is a contributing editor to National Review
High up on my reading list is The Reagan Diaries. I am frequently embarrassed in conservative company by not knowing half as much about the 40th president as everyone else seems to.
I'm sorry, I don't know this guy Derbyshire, but that is just a pathetically nerdish statement.
Nancy French is the author of Red State of Mind: How a Catfish Queen Reject Became a Liberty Bell and cofounder of Evangelicals for Mitt.
For Women Only:
What You Need to Know about the Inner Lives of Men, by Shaunti Feldhahn
I have a general aversion to “marital advice books.” However, the author’s appearance on Focus on the Family was so popular, James Dobson asked her back for three segments. This got my attention.
Got my attention too. Must. Not. Read.
Kathryn Jean Lopez is the editor of National Review Online.
For fascinating gossip and popular political history? Forget about The Diana Chronicles when there’s Robert Novak’s The Prince of Darkness.
Oh yeah. I've heard about that Novak book.
Huh. I'll wait til they both hit the remainder bin.
Oh oh, seems like there is one sane person over there.
John J. Miller is National Review’s national political reporter.
A few months ago, I went on a Michael Connelly spree, reading his crime thrillers at a clip of about one per week. The best is probably Angels Flight, for its vivid portrait of cops, killers, and lawyers in Los Angeles. My other Connelly favorites include The Black Echo, The Poet, and The Lincoln Lawyer.
It's worth going over there and seeing how they echo chamber even their ideas on books, and recommend mostly their bud's books (Heylo, Bill Bennett's book a "must read"?).
So, what are you reading? My list inside.
