Favorite Book: "Davey Crockett" by Irwin Shapiro

"The first book I read, and completed, was "Davey Crockett" in the 7th grade. I like reading biographies. I read "Truman" and I read General Patton's biography. Thank God Patton was on our side! I also read anything about the Marine Corps. I subscribe to "Leatherneck" magazine every month and I enjoy going through it. I don't like fiction. I like to read about real people's lives."
