Kevin Kaufman is the President of the Chamber of Commerce in Seymour, WI for 2009.
I always have something along to read and make sure I take time whenever I can. My goal is an hour a day.
Wherever there's a book, magazine or paper!
Little Golden Books--Disney's Mickey Mouse. Mickey was every classic story hero-- Jack in the Beanstalk; The Prince and the Pauper. This helped create my need to read! My mom kept the books and we read them to our son.
by John Steinbeck
Read in high school but had my interest renewed on a trip to Monterey. The characters came to life after visiting places described. The only thing missing was the smell described in the book.
Season of Life
by Jeffrey Marx
This book was a gift from a friend who coaches football. This is a story of a former NFL player who goes on to coach high school players. He teaches them to become men by teaching them to love each other and deal with tragedy.
Sports writer Feinstein wrote great books, 'A Good Walk Spoiled' and 'The Last Amatuers'. Feinstein breaks down one of basketball's most violent moments when a punch from one player almost kills another. He details the lives of both players leading up to the punch and how it affected them.
The Classic Kissel Automobile
Val V. Quandt
One of Wisconsin's forgotten industries. A fascinating look at the early years when cars were built by hand. The cars were built in Hartford, WI and driven by people like Amelia Earhart and actress Clara Bow.
The Fox Heritage
Written by former Appleton resident and State Poet Laureate. This book gives great detail of our region's origins and the importance of the Fox River. Lots of fantastic pictures and facts.
This is Milwaukee
Robert W. Wells
A good-natured look at the origins of Wisconsin's largest city. Historic locations are described with reference to what (& where) they are today.
I have one more to add!!
7--Abraham Lincoln, by Benjamin Thomas
A great book about a great man. Well-researched and full of detail. Lincoln lived his life as we all should, with dedication, compassion and determination. The most incredible feeling I've ever experienced was standing in the box in Ford Theater where Lincoln spent his last moments as President.
Just a quick note on authors I enjoy for a "quick read" to get away from things. They include Clive Cussler, W.E.B. Griffin, Sue Grafton, Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton.
Thanks for letting me share!
