Nonfiction Booklists

trappedRecommended Reading

by Mac Tonnies

The following are books devoted to unusual/uncommon topics. I offer them as recommendations for anyone curious about extraterrestrial life, space colonization, quantum theory, life extension, UFOs, human origins, artificial intelligence, etc.

Note that some of these titles are quite “mainstream,” while others are decidedly “oddball.” I’ve found that healthy doses of both camps help in breaking out of existing “reality tunnels.” In other words: challenge yourself. Hold everything you “know” in question. We only think we know it all.

  1. One thing is that when you find yourself searching for a education loan you may find that you’ll want a cosigner. There are many cases where this is true because you will find that you do not have a past credit standing so the loan company will require you have someone cosign the money for you. Thanks for your post.

  2. The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
