  LEISURE AND GOOD VANITY:

Solomon told us in Ecclesiastes to enjoy good food and to enjoy our spouse and family.  There is evil vanity which is based on sin, and there is good vanity which has no spiritual reward but which is needed as we deal with our humanity.  This list will include anything from how to cure impotence to how to find a camp site in Yellowstone.  If you think it unspiritual to stop and smell the roses, go chase yourself.  This list of books is for real saints who need diversion from time to time.

ADVENTURE  Mostly True Accounts

The Lunatic Express--  The whole account of the building of the Uganda Railroad.  Peppered with tongue in cheek British humor at its best.  Also gives an exceptional view of British colonial activity at the turn of the century.

Lions of Tsavo--  This tells the story of the building of the Uganda railroad and events at Tsavo when man eating lions terrorized the workers.  Classic of British suspense.

ANIMAL AND BIRD WATCHING

Birds of North America--  by Chandler S. Robbins, Herbert Spencer Zim--  Pub. Golden Pr--  Very useful book and not expensive.

HUMOR

Bill Nyes Western Humor--  by Bill Nye--  This is real humor at its best from a newspaper editor in Wyoming circa 1890.

The Best of Bill Nye's Humor : Selections from the Nineteenth-Century American Humorist--  by Bill Nye--  More of Nye's wit.  See about Nue's books in used bookstore.
