Buy the DVD

The DGW Bookshelf

February 16, 2009

Darius and crew spend a lot of time on the road. Most of that time, we’re working on-line and with our hosts to sell DVDs, but…

to stay smart (and sane!), we read a LOT.

Our tastes range from the informative…

to the patriotic, and from books…

to magazines and newspapers.

So we’ve decided to share some of our favorites with you. Here, we match some members of the crew with the books they highly recommend.

Andrew’s reading a lot of author Cormac McCarthy’s works. Right now, he’s on All the Pretty Horses.

Collin loves Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment.

Daniel’s working on Let My People Go Surfing: the Education of a Reluctant Businessman, a memoir/manifesto by Patagonia Inc. founder-owner Yvon Chouinard.

Ben recommends Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.

The big man himself, Darius, suggests one of his favorites: Harper Lee’s classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

Do you have any favorites? What are some of your recommendations?

    “My Antonia” by Willa Cather–a great companion as you pass thru the great plains.

    I am greatly and gratefully enjoying the DGW blogs, especially your ‘bookshelf’ and the Chapel Hill report. Cormac McCarthy is so powerful. That author’s collection was passed on to me from my aunt, also a McCarthy. I loved his trilogy, but found his earlier works too violent. I used to think he exaggerated the violence in this world.

    Well, how about another suggestion from a fan? I’m currently reading “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” a book I picked up because Amble had given it to Eve, and I figured he knew how to make a good recommendation. Well, it is original and new, dealing with loss and the living on with the loss of loved ones. It helps that the 9 y.o. hero is a kind genious.

    P. S I agree with any of Mary Lynn’s recommendations.
