Semi True--#31 finished

This is a kind of interesting book about a longtime truck driver that has settled into a job driving for a radio show, I think.  It really wasn't too clear in the book.  It also mentioned on his bio that he writes for Prairie Home Companion or something like that.  This book has some interesting stories and experiences, but after reading Poe Ballantine's What I Like About America, it is easy to rate Semi True more than a few notches below this.  That is not to say Semi True isn't a decent read, but in comparison much less interesting.  I still don't have a good feel for who the author really is, he mentions things about himself, but don't get much beyond he really enjoys driving his truck for the show.

Oh well not every book is going to be a winner for me.  It is posted on PBS now with 1 other person already having this book out there.  I am guessing a couple of months but could even be much longer I guess.

I am still reading Avenger and Bow Grip and will look at adding a 3rd yet as well.  Sunday I am running a 5k so will have to see how that goes.  I should really get some sleep now, could help me tomorrow, I guess.
