    I read this autobiography "Broken Music", which actually appears to be written by Sting himself in 2003. It tells his story from his childhood up to when The Police had just started to see success. There were some surprising details and amazing connections, and it is nice to see how long and hard the struggle can be, even for someone who grew into a well-crafted songwriter and rock star.

    I got a Kindle for Christmas probably five or eight years ago. I like books.

    I don’t know how or why but when Covid hit I had been going to the library and I actually had 21 library books. They closed the library and I could not return them.

    After reading all of them I had to turn on my Kindle. I then borrowed Kindle books from my library. I was surprised that it worked because I had not used it for years.

    Stuart Woods has gotten monotonous...
    I like the Bill O'Reilly series Killing_______
    C.J Box, Brad Taylor, Marc Cameron among a lot of those listed previously with similar types of stories.
    A great one: Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins (true story)
    And the one to make you think: One Second After by William Forstchen

    I have accumulated almost 1,500 books. I always thought I'd sell them to a used book store, but those businesses had dried up before I got around to it. Never thought about Goodwill. I guess I'll do that and reduce the amount of fuel for a house fire in my basement...

    I used to spend a couple hours every day reading. In 2013 I bought my first Samsung tablet. Read on that for a year or 2, then I transitioned to streaming during the time I would normally read. It has probably made me less smart, but I'll be ok.
