Don't know if I can do that just yet but I have not read Far and Wide: Bring that Horizon to Me.  Since that is his last one, it would be fitting I suppose.

Yes, but I don't think I could do that one right now, way too emotional in light of his passing. :(

Yeah I know, I read it after my daughter died. It was hard but I got through it, couldn’t put it down. Will have to read it again.

I'd be on board with that.

I only have ghost rider. I read about half of it several years ago but never finished it so would like to try it again(starting over from scratch of course).

looks like it's "Far and Wide: Bring that Horizon to Me."  I'd be okay with that.

I've only read Roadshow and Ghost Rider.

I started reading Ghost Rider yesterday.
Think I need that one now, to cope the situation.

This is my first time with a book club. How far do we go? What's the process?

On a related note:  I found myself wondering if Neil may have written anything at all concerning what he had been going through over the past three years.  Something book-wise or possibly poetry/lyrics.  Of all his favorite things "to do in life" - drumming, motorcycling, site-seeing - the one thing he would have been able to continue with would have been his writing.

Such writings would certainly be so much different than what Neil's done previously.  I've mixed feelings about my own thoughts on this.
