What Books Do You Read

Postby Morcar » Mon May 02, 2005 5:06 pm

What kind of books do you all like to read.

Myself I love anything by Terry Pratchett. The Discworld is an amazing thing and I recommend the books to anyone. He makes wonderful stories charaters that enagage your interest.

I also read the Lord of the ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings Triology at least once a year.

Depends on what I'm in the mood for. I do not regularly sit down with a book and read it unless I find my 'Roller Coaster' book laying around asking for attention. As for books I just read, I just finished Night (the Holocaust) and also just finished Dawn (what happened after Night, as a fiction)

I'm not big on reading, but when I do, I mainly read biographies and sports books such as the works of John Feinstein. The last book I read was Danny Weurffel's biography Tales From the Gator Swamp: Reflections of Faith and Football. I'm now working on John Feinstein's The Punch. Both are pretty good books.

Right now I'm reading David Egger's A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius (or at least trying, the book is too depressing to read too much in a single sitting) and Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation.

History and biography. i use to read Stephen King, but when he started cranking out 5 books a year, that pretty much stopped.

^ True. If there was a Stephen King Theme Park, the signature ride would be "Ghostwriter" :D

Another "former" King fan. Used to read a lot of him.

And I guess I have most of the "Battletech" Books. A shame they changed that universe around...

Disney Theme Park and Imagineering books.

Other then that... not so much. (unless I could count in my comics :-) )

No book can beat Strong bad's "No two people are the same".


But in the distant world of reality, i don't read any books at all.
