    I can't. I love to read, but alas, about the only hard copy I read nowdays is Shotgun News. I drive anywhere between 70-80 hours a month, and work 100 hrs a week. By the time I get to a motel, I shower, brush my teeth, post a few posts on Xcolony and sleep.

    So, I multitask. I get my news from AM radio, my entertainment from audio books, and non-oilfield interaction via Xcolony.

    Which one you want first, Deathlands, Outlanders or Doomsday Warrior?

    Deathlands is about post apocolyptic America and a group of travelers travel about via a gateway system set up by the Cerberus project pre nuke, by a super secret government program.

    Outlanders is a similiar scenario that involves a worldwide "Club of Rome" type of cabal that is pitting small baronies against each other in a giant chess game, and one man who fights against it when he finds out the truth.

    Doomsday Warrior is about a group of people a hundred years or so post nuke war that are fighting against the Soviet occupation in the United Soviet States of America (USSA).

    Heck. I will send book one of all of them.

    I can send you one of the CD's if you promise to send it back when you are done. I can send you book 1 of one of the series. They are usually about 8 hours per book.

    My loss in the ear I have left is actually limited to the frequency that vovers spoken language....it's wierd sometimes...I'll be pluggin' along, nothing wrong, and somebody will just start jabbering in a low tone and all I'll hear is "wa wah wah."

    But, I too have real bad hearing loss and have found by using headphones I over come that problem. I am talking about the ones that fit over both ears and where you can adjust the volume on each side. I have 40% loss on the right and 20% loss on the left. Certain tones are completely silent to me. The pastor at the church I went to for 3 Sundays had a voice I could not hear. I had to find a new Parish. I had to explain why, and that it was nothing personal.

    I looked at hearing aids, but the kind I need run around $20K per ear. OUCH.

    But I do enjoy these CD's and stories. There is something about the way that they record them in their patented "Graphic Audio" style that works well for me. I can hear everything including the background noises they put on the CD.
