An American Conglomeration: Humor, Wisdom, History, Philosophy, Patriotism, Knowledge, Reality

I enjoy reading autobiographies, history, novels, etc., but leisure readers became a novelty for me to pass the time and relax. If you don't want to get into a novel or an autobiography, if you want short reads, this is the book for you.I started this gathering of resources for this book back in the early '90s. My passion for humor, history, patriotism, ethics, morals, wit, wisdom, reality, and knowledge became a goal for me to form topics that interested the common reader without the political influence found in other writings.There are times that you have time in waiting--waiting for appointments, car maintenance, doctor appointments, your child at school pickup, whatever type of waiting, enjoy a leisure reader. My favorite was Reader's Digest; I would go straight to the "Humor" section. I had no interest in the advertising magazines; they brought no ease of mind and relaxation that humor brings to you as an escape from reality when you need it, especially at whatever waiting occasion it may be.For over twenty-plus years, and still today, I have gathered an assortment of reading enjoyment I would love to share with you. This book may be more related to the baby boomer era, but I think all will enjoy. It brings the old and new together in a fashionable outline of topics and categories. I figure it is time to share what I have resourced in the last two decades.A conglomeration of materials gathered from many sources into an organized whole to appease your appetite for ease of reading and remain distinct entities. Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are. We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality; we create it to be able to stay.I wanted to take you back to the good old days yet keep you up to date with laughter, knowledge, and peacefulness away from the grinding days that we are today. I hope that this American Conglomeration brings you escape at times when you needed that escape and some knowledge you probably didn't want to know but was interesting.A masterpiece refers to a creation that has been given much critical praise, especially one that is considered the greatest work of his/her outstanding creativity and skill. That is not me; I just want you to enjoy the anthology of the content in this book. You decide for yourself.
