The Radio Boys' First Wireless

by Allen Chapman

This was not a bad first entry in a young adult series. The characters are fairly engaging, there's a bit of action, a bit of poignancy, a bit of good values and a bit of education woven into the story.

Naturally, it's terribly dated, but the book is a good read for any nostalgist and especially any fan of old time radio (or I should say, OLD old time radio, the days before regular programming).

In the Sweet Dry and Dry

by Christopher Morley

This is an excellent read! I'm a big fan of Christopher Morley and I believe this was the funniest work of his that I've yet read.

It's a rather scathing satire on Prohibition. The story develops into a humorous satire on government control of individual rights and legislating morality, which definitely hits home even today

Highly recommended!

Love Conquers All

by Robert C. Benchley

Excellent collection of humor essays by comedian and actor Robert Benchley. Benchley has a rather dry wit that is reminescent of Woody Allen (back when he was a comedian). Many of the topics are a little dated, but on the whole it is very funny.
