This is heartening guys. Last I heard the trend was that people just weren't reading like they used to and it's sad, but to hear that a hardened buncha guys are is great

I'll admit though, I've not even heard of half the stuff listed and I practically live at Barnes and Noble. Maybe I need to broaden my horizons.

I am currently reading a Clive Cussler novel (not Dirk Pitt, but Kurt Austin), The Navigator. I'm enough of a fan of Cussler (read ALL his books and followed his finding of the Hunley Confederate sub), my wife got me a Doxa 600T dive watch - the same one that Dirk Pitt wears and is mentioned in each of the Dirk Pitt books (and worn by Mathew McCaunghenadsfklajsd;klfj ;akjs - however you spell it) in Sahara.

Easy read, but enjoyable!

I'm into the Cussler, Dale Brown, Tom Clancy type books (techno-thriller kinda stuff). Fav Clancy book was either Red Storm Rising or Cardinal in the Kremlin.

Read this book recently, well iv been reading little bits here and there. Great book imo

The Essential Difference- Simon Baron Cohen

Women will want to talk about it. Men will sit silent and brood over its details'

Men and women: what really makes us different? Why do women love to chat while men prefer games, gadgets and alphabetizing their CDs? Why can a woman tell when you’re lying? And what is it about men and lists…?

We all know the opposite sex can be a baffling species, but we’ve never had the facts to tell us why – until now. Here leading psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen reveals:

· That male and female minds are different
· Why female brains are better at empathizing
· How male brains are designed to analyse ‘systems’ (from maps to music)
· The groundbreaking theory that autism is a form of the extreme male brain
· And, how to test yourself and find out what kind of brain you have

Empathizers are naturally tuned into other people’s thoughts and feelings. They read emotional atmosphere, effortlessly put themselves into other people’s shoes, are sensitive negotiators and can respond intuitively to a change in another person’s mood.

Systemizers have an exact eye for detail, they drive to analyse, explore and construct. They intuitively want to figure out how things work, or extract the underlying rules that govern the behaviour.

"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."

I read to kick back and not have to worry about things. It's different than researching/reading on the web. It's way better than watching TV.

I mostly read political novels or financial thrillers.
