Some books shape your thinking & manage to be immensely entertaining! Thought provoking SciFi like Revolt in 2100 by Robert Heinlein & A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller & Midas World , Mars Plus & Man Plus by Frederick Pohl which present a future which is not only plausible but may already be occurring & yet don't bore you to tears with technical mumbo jumbo. Fantasy books with characters who have admirable personality traits without exasperatingly trite story lines. Swashbuckling adventure stories like Master Mariner: Running Proud by Nicholas Monsarrat which is action packed & has characters who experience self doubts (as we all do) while they attempt to accomplish great things. Historical novels with sweeping story lines that don't bog down like Caribbean: A Novel by James Michener. Then of course some cult classics like Fast Times at Ridgemont High by Cameron Crowe & Jack Faust by Michael Swannick. There are even a few classics like Lost Horizon by James Hilton which unbelievably have not been Kindlized yet. This is a list of just such books which have inspired & entertained me but are not yet published for the Kindle.
