    Reading, not so much these days. Comes and goes.
    Music, now that's another story. One takes the place of the other I suppose.
    Lots of Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, west coast type 70's vibe, lots of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and the like, and considering it's Aruba I listen to a lot of MassiveFM from San Nicolas, when I'm on the beach for real or at home wishing I were there instead of here, where it's actually snowing again as I type this.

    It's okay, only 30 more days...

    See you on the beach, I'll be the one under the palapa with the guitar plugged into my ears.

    Then you would like Journey of betrayals and Journey to unknown consequences by John H Gray. If you like Bad Guys v Good Guys you will love these books!

    Prepare yourself for lots of drama!

    Next stop.. Amazon

    I'm with you. Try (if you haven't already) Andrew Gross, His Series with Ty Hauck as the character is pretty entertaining there are 4 in the series. I'm through three and am looking forward to the fourth.

    I had to laugh - those are my 3 favorite genres But I listen to a little bit of everything. My playlist will go from Conway Twitty to Bruno Mars and back to Luke Bryan without missing a beat. We go for upbeat music on the beach.

    If you enjoy her humor and haven't read any of her books, Chelsea Handler literally made me laugh out loud reading most of her books. I generally do a book for the plane ride or at night when Jon is asleep and I can't turn my brain off. I like anything James Patterson or John Grisham.

    If anyone enjoyed the Netflix movie about the rock band Motley Crue, I highly recommend the book "The Dirt" that it was based on. The book had many more details and stories from each guy's perspective. My tastes are far from classical!

    You’re not alone, although I side Andrea on the genre dislikes, as we actually saw Motley Crue’s farewell tour in Vegas. Most of what I listen to is heavy metal or hard rock, along with some oldies, classic rock and some disco thrown in. Didn’t care for most of the punk era. The wife can’t get enough Pit Bull.
