I thought we had a thread for this but I didn't see it... so we do now! What are you cigar luvin fools reading?
I'm currently re-reading the Dark Tower Series by Stephen King. I'm about 2/3 of the way through the Drawing of the Three... great series... worth a read if you like a mix between Fantasy, Sci-fi, western, horror, action... it's got it all...
Working my way through the Mitch Rapp books by Vince Flynn... love these books... tons of action, fast paced, easy reads... it's like a mix between Jack Ryan and Jason Bourne
My last "Learning" book was 1776 by David McCullough... it was an on and off book for me and it took me a long time to get through it... but I plan on re-reading it (while not reading anything else) soon...
My To Read list:
The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris by David McCullough (i like the way he writes history)
John Adams by David McCullough
what about you guys>???
Im finishing up Enders Game right now. Awesome book!
Yeah, I'm gonna have to check it out... my cousin was telling me about it on our fishing trip... apparently it's a whole series... anyway, it's on the list... glad to hear you liked it
The Long War.....a follow up to the Long Earth
enders game is a classic. Can't wait to see the movie
those books sound long...
sorry... had to do it... i'll look them up on amazon, never heard of either one
if you like scifi at all they are pretty good.....different would be the best way to explain them. never have ready anything like them before to be honest.
Currently reading the "Albany Series" by William Kennedy. Almost done with Roscoe. Working on Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller a little at a time. I loved the Dark Tower Series even though I am not a big King fan.
Endurance, it is the story of Shackleton's voyage to the Antarctic.
We revived the TV thread, so why not the reading thread?
I just finished I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes... it was a little long and tedious at times, but I loved it... Enjoyed the first person narrative... it was like a detective and spy novel rolled into one with a side of "chase down the terrorist" and "save the world" for good measure... Looking forward to Terry's next one...
I read The Martian by Andy Weir over Christmas and LOVED it... great book...
With baseball season on the way, I started a new audiobook called The Rook by Daniel O'Malley... This is a supernatural thriller... Dana wanted to read it, so I downloaded the audiobook for our recent trip up to her mom's... we got through the first 4 hours and it's aight... more her speed than mine...
What to read next? As usual, I have a list of very different genres:
nice... yeah I read the first 4 of GOT but I need him to FINISH the books... I hate starting a series that isn't complete... If it's a trilogy, I won't start until book two is in paperback...
I don't recognize some of those authors, so I'll check them out... I have seen Rollins around, but haven't read him yet... Love Vince Flynn's stuff...
