I'm not going to list the fiction books that I've read, but, I've only read about 15 of them. My favorite fiction author, however, was Charles Nordhoff.  As far as high school and grade school text books go, I did not list them because most of the time I was too stupid to know that it was important to read them and didn't read them anyway.  But things are different now, I have come to realize that it is really important to read your text books.

While I was in the Naval Aviation Electronics Schools in Memphis, TN., we were required to read large stacks of what were programmed instructions. These were designed very well for an easy way to teach electronics. I believe that a stack of these which I've accumulated would measure about four feet high. These programmed instructions covered subjects from how electricity works to fire control radar theory of design. Of course I cannot list a stack of these booklets on my web page.
