These were the last books left to tour – a smallish but eclectic variety of “real world” topics that interest me. Let me know if you’ve read any of them or similar books you’d recommend!

It’s Dean, I hope you’ll remember me? I comment sometimes on Ruth’s blog and I used to have a site entitled ‘Anchors To Windward.’ We spoke briefly about your career in software and working with law enforcement as I am a retired Deputy Sheriff. Anyway, I really liked this post of yours. I much prefer “real world” topics for my reading and find comfort that others do as well. I especially like books that bring to light all those brave explorers whose exploits in the name of science broadened our perspectives and understandings, mostly I like those stories from the Renaissance to the late 19th/early 20th century. I loved Chesterton’s Orthodoxy, though I’ve not read Heretics. I think I asked you once, but have you ever read GKCs Father Brown series? They are wonderful and quite enduring. It’s funny that you mentioned Cousteau in this post, not only did I love watching his programs, but I just made mention of him in today’s post on my site. Thanks for taking the time to make a video post, it’s inspiring and kind of you to let us in on a more personal level. I’m still trying to find the time to blog regularly, let alone create video/audio content. Have a blessed rest of the week!
