Yeah, I decided to kill the thread the spammer created earlier.  However, there should be a thread for reading since some of us do read.  Personally, I seem to only read about 4 or 5 things.  Books by Terry Brooks (Shannara), Eric Van Lustbader (Nicholas Linnear series), Robert Aspirin(Thieves World), R.A. Salvatore(Drizzt books) and Wrestling auto-biographies.  Odd I know.  What do you folks read besides the instruction manuals to your Home Theater equipment?   Grin

Speaking of manuals for HT equipment, I have yet to crack open the directions to my new receiver....

But. I do read. I just got done The Black Dahlia and Forever. Now I am reading Artie Lange's autobio.

Favorite authors... Steven King and Richard Price.

I actually have a paperback copy of Black Dahlia that I bought on clearance for my girlfriend but she's never going to read it.  Marginally better than the movie?  Wayyyy better than the movie?

I am currently reading a compilation of all 10 Chronicles Of Amber books.
I love those books and am enjoying the re-read very much.

I've only re-read Shannara (Terry Brooks) and old Charles Dickens or Mark Twain classics.  Frankly, it's pretty hard for me to re-read things.  But like my girlfriend, she's read each of the Twilight books 3 and 4 times at least.  I just don't get it I guess.  But yet I can rewatch most movies no problem.

I never saw the movie, but since it's gotten pretty horrid reviews I am going to venture a guess and say it's better. Ellroy wrote an afterword about the movie and loved it though, so go figure.

I started, then stopped Blood Meridian.  Now I got it on audiobook, so I'll try to actually get through it during my commute to work.

I actually listened to the 5th and 6th books of Harry Potter on audio cd...extremely enjoyable.  The guy just had something to his voice and made me eager to listen to it.

Currently reading a book called Shantaram written by an Australian and based upon his time in India. A highly recommended read.

I read Q&A the book Slumdog millionare was based upon and can highly recommend it as well a lot darker than the film with more interesting characters.

I just got back into reading again.  Got through Breakfast Of Champions (Vonnegut) and Life Of Pi (Yann Martel).  Life Of Pi is a modern classic.

First summer in a while I haven't been inundated with things I "had to read" for class.  I read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, because I had never read it and thought it was about time.  I also read a book called Finn written about the life of Huck's father.  Can't remember the author, but a definite must read for anyone who likes Twain.  This guy did a really great job of weaving a story together about how a child like Huck could come to be and what his father could have been like. 

Other than that I finally read The DaVinci Code and a bunch of trashy novels not really worth remembering.  Definitely felt good to pick up a book because I had an interest in it for a change though Smiley

Picked up the entire series of The Preacher.  I've only read the first two volumes, so I'm excited to continue through to the end.

Enjoy Preacher a friend lent me his copies and I loved it such rich characters full of depth and motivated by hate.
