Here you go Griffy! Let's talk books!

Let's Revive This Thread: gwinCLARKE2019 Book Review Announcement

Based on a conversation in the Miscellaneous thread earlier this week, I've concluded that the Tapology community needs an updated book thread. To that, I intend to post bi-weekly books reviews in this thread with the intent of helping fellow Tapology users find interesting things to read. Feel free to join me in posting your own reviews. I have to finish up some studying so I probably won't post any reviews this month. But my goal is to get a new review out every two weeks starting on 8/5/2022. Here are some books that I am interested in covering:

  • The Plantagenets: The Warriors Kings and Queens Who Made England (Dan Jones)
  • Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood (Trevor Noah)
  • Things Fall Apart (Chinua Achebe)
  • Black Rednecks and White Liberals (Thomas Sowell)
  • Crime and Punishment (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)
  • Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis (J.D. Vance)
  • Coolidge (Amity Shlaes)
  • Once There Were Giants: The Golden Age of Heavyweight Boxing (Bob Izenberg)
  • Four Kings: Leonard, Hagler, Hearns, Duran and the Last Great Era of Boxing (George Kimball)
  • King Lear (William Shakespeare) (technically a play, but one that I remember enjoying reading)

Feel free to critique my posts once they arrive, or to make suggestions in the meantime.

Follow up to my original post










I have run into some time constraints based on inflexible life circumstances (nothing bad, just tedious). So my initial book review will be out early next week instead of today. But I think y'all will like it nonetheless.
