Books -- not a bad idea either..I could grab a couple .. Plus I have a few unread aviation history books from when I was laid up in 2007 for 8 months from the cause of this mess ( coworkers also hooked me up back then with Netflix--turned out to be a Godsend ) . What I don't have are any good Africa  ( even though I lived in South Africa back in 84/85) adventure style books. ....hmmm

I like Forbes, Fortune, and The Wall Street Journal.  SoF, Swat and Fine Home Building are also favorites.  The Journal will give you something new every day.

I'd think about CS Lewis and Ayn Rand for books on CD.  If you have problems sleeping then get Alan Grenspan on cd! One of the dramitized version of the Bible on CD is good for healing.

 Alan Furst is a good read.  Start with his first book.  Capsticks books are a good read. Raymond Chandler is classic! I like Nior, but you need to learn to ballance it with some thing else. I'd get John Maxwell and Jim Cramer for some ballance. Some Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Cosby CD's  And Classic Comedy stuff on dvd will help you heal faster. 
 
Laughter promotes healing. One lady I have met job is to travel to nursing homes and do laughter sessions.  She does things like exercises where people just go Ha-ha-Ha and Ho-Ho-Ho for a couple of minutes at a time.  She gets impressive results with the Alzhimers patiences.
 
Sales training stuff like Zig Ziglar, will also help you heal faster. Look for Og Mandino, David Schwartz, Dale Carninge and others.

Stephen Hunter books are also great reads.  Earl and Bob Lee Swagger are the bomb.

Peter Hathaway Capstick's books are absolutely great, if you like African adventure stories.  Try reading "Death in the Long Grass" as a first choice.  (You can skip most of the biographies he's written, though.) 

He was absolutely the best African adventure writer of our time.  Some writers and professional hunters have questioned his PH credentials and experiences.  However, the PH's certainly owe him thanks for the current high level of interest in African hunts.

You could try the Eastman's hunting rags. 

The writing pretty much sucks but, at least it's real people doing real hunts as opposed to paid writers being invited onto private ranches so they can "field test" gear given them by various manufacturers/advertisers and where there is little or no actual hunting happening.

GUNS magazine has improved and I actually like reading it now. I also like Stephen Ambrose's books, and how come I didn't see the American Rifleman on your list. You may want to consider music and books on tape (or whatever) because the first few days after surgery your not going to feel like reading or watching anything til you get used to the meds.
GOOD LUCK!
