Anyone want to share what kind of stuff you like to read on the road.

I read a book called "Subtle art of not giving a... Well you know. Spelled that way without the U. Was I thought a great book. Very entertaining and makes you think about what you really allow yourself to get worked over about and why. Author I believe is Mark Monsoon. if you're at all familiar with him.

Oh boy I read all kinds of stuff, so much that I can't really put it in a category. Mostly fiction, with some non-fiction at times. My dad and I are constantly trading books back and forth. My interests can range from a Robert Ludlum thriller to a Civil War archive. Patterson, Grisham, Poe, Twain. Anything that catches my fancy.

That said, there are many books that for whatever reason just couldn't keep my interest, so I'd put them down and move on to the next.

Same here. Mostly thrillers like Patterson, Grisham, etc. But a lot of other stuff as well. Fiction though. I don’t do much non fiction, at least not books.

Common ground, Packrat. John Grisham. Grisham writes one book a year and I read them all. I'm trying to re-learn my Spanish, so I try to spend some time each day with my textbooks and verb book.

Well...since you brought it up....I have a few published. The best and most recent is Zodiac Lives, which is a thriller once compared to James Patterson and David Baldacci.

In that book, a child in 2000 has nightmares of a man trying to kill her in San Francisco. It turns out that her dreams lead investigators to undiscovered evidence from the infamous and real life Zodiac killings of the 1970s. After 20 years of dormancy, Zodiac starts killing again to discover who knows his identity.

i have other historical fiction...all involve suspense murder mysteries. One book is about the USPS and people find it funny....human heads and alligators in the mail. They are on Kindle and Audible.

if anyone's interested, i can set them for free for a few days. i might still have audiobook coupons for Zodiac Lives but they can only be used once, so if you ask please use it cause no one else can.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

I go back and forth, between fiction and nonfiction. I love a well-researched book having anything to do with WWII. Right now I’m into “The Pentagon’s Brain: An uncensored history of DARPA, America’s top secret military research agency.” It’s definitely NOT a page-turner, but very interesting nonetheless. It references Operation Paperclip, which, if you don’t know much about post-WWII, is quite appalling.
