Eye Reedz (book thread)

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Picked up this interesting book...The End of Money and the Future of Civilization -Thomas Greco
Fascinating history of currency and where it is headed. Should be done by the end of the weekend if the weather holds up. :drink:

I just read that they are filming a movie in Vancouver that was adapted from a book I recently recommend here called a A Single Shot - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1540741/

"Into Thin Air" Jon Krakauer's account of the tragic climb up Everest in 1996. Read "The Climb" by Boukreev which provides some rebuttal.

I recently read Into Thin Air and really enjoyed it (even though I was reading it in the middle of summer ;) ). I'll be interested to read another take on those 1996 summits in The Climb as well.

Under the Banner of Heaven is also indispensable Krakauer. Particularly since we have a Mormon up for election in this country. Its amazing what millions of dollars in PR money will do to legitimize your cult.
