The Ameritopia review looks good but it would cost me $12.99 for the kindle edition. I will wait until the justice department sorts out apple and the publishers…

Christopher Hitchens- god is NOT great, how religion poisons everything. Great book for all believers to read. Also Sam Harris- End of Faith

These days I mostly read non-fiction.

I just finished, Guitarmaking: Tradition and Technology: A Complete Reference for the Design & Construction of the Steel-String Folk Guitar & the Classical Guitar by Jonathan Natelson & William Cumpiano. Though a bit dated it is an outstanding reference for guitar building.

Making Musical Instruments by Hand by Jay Havighurst (Excellent simple but functional projects)
Making Simple Musical Instruments by Bart Hopkins (Mixed, some good, some not so good like the styrofoam cooler guitar)
Making Musical Instruments by Irving Sloane (Good book, the instruments are more complex)

Thanks for mentioning those. I have been considering trying to build a guitar. I play a little and some that I have seen on LJs have given me inspiration.

I almost never read a book written by a woman but I have just finished “The Help” and found it to be
an excellent diversion.
Every time I put it down I soon began looking forward to getting back to it.
For me, that’s a good sign in a book.
