Interesting Books

I just started reading Hemingway's Boat and I'am really enjoying it, I feel I should stop and start over while anchored out enjoying my boat.Click image for larger version

There is a replica or sister ship inside the world wide sportsmans store on isla morada, FL
It is great to look at it and realize how basic his boat was by todays standards.

In Argentine, there's a guy who built a replica and equiped it just like it was...he has it as a trophy, he seldom goes far with it.
A work of art anyhow

I also enjoy reading Hemingway; I've read everything he has ever written.

My kids bought me a book one Father's Day, a few years ago. I got a kick out of it, so recommend that too.

I've not read any of Hemingway's novels, I plan on rectifying that mistake.

Some are more "readable" than others. I've never read any biographical books about Hemingway, as I've always assumed that they would be depressing (at least the later chapters). Maybe this book will prove me wrong.
