out of curiosity...
 
What's the last book you read?

I just read A Clockwork Orange, hated it by the end.

This isn't a test or anything, I'm just curious how many of you actually have the time and if you read fiction or non-fiction.

Don't remember the title, but the last book was one of Clive Cussler's books. Writes about a fictional character (Dirk Pit)that works for a govt agency that does underwater research as their mainstay. Action & adventure == take my mind away from the realities of life ==good entertainment.

last book I read was The DaVinci Code. I wasn't going to read Angels and Demons but now it is going to film so I want to read it before it comes out.

oh dear, scout.



I'm reading Sometimes a Great Notion by the author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, one of my favorite books.

I used to read a lot. Now not so much. I know the Clive Cussler novels. I have read all of them. I do listen to a lot of books on tape due to the amount of driving I do. Does that count?

Scout you scare me sometime. :D

Last book I read was about 2 months ago. Eragon part two, aka Eldest Inheritance Book Two: Christopher Paolini.

Both were excelent books (Eragon/Eragon 2). I get too stressed over real life stuff as it is, I dont have time to read anything but fiction :)

Hackle 06-15-2007 04:15 PM

"The Teeth of the Tiger" - Tom Clancy

larphead 06-15-2007 07:20 PM

big bookworm here. i love to read. problem is I'm also a fast reader. i usually finish a 400 page novel in 2-3 days.

last book i read was The Husband by Dean Koontz. before that it was Die Trying by Lee Child.

i like suspense/thriller/horror mostly. a big Stephen King fan (i think i have almost read every thing the man has wrote) also Dean Koontz, Bentley Little , Neil Gamin.

but i also love a good mystery like Sue Grafton "alphabet" series, Janet Evanovich, James Patterson, and Lee Child.

i have read many of the Dirk Pitt books, love every one of them. W.E.B Griffin is good too if you like military books. surprisingly i not a big Tom Clancy or J.R. Tolkien fan. i have read books from both (forced myself thru Lord Of the Rings) and ...meh.

I've always been a reader. even in high school i usually had a novel tucked away somewhere (unusual for a long haired dope smoking grease ball taking auto shop :D ) i had a English teacher once who tried her damndest to get me to got to college for a degree in Lit. i said no, she said "but why? your smarter than you think you are and you love to read"
i said "exactly i love to read. if i go and am FORCED to read and study all these different books that bore me to tears. i might not like it anymore"

The last book I read was "The Shape Shifters" by Tony Hillerman. I've read all of his Navajo Mysteries.
I like mysteries and sci/fi. Don't get a lot of time to read though.

1BLKJP 06-16-2007 02:21 AM

The last book I read was a re-read of "Bleachers" by John Grisham.

Book I'm currently reading is called "The Book of Fate" by Brad Meltzer.

Pretty goob book. I've read all of his Jack Ryan novels but my all time favorite book by Tom Clancy id Red Storm Rising. Favorite book period. Being a Nuclear Artilleryman in Germany during the height of the cold war, it made it kind of spooky. Many people will never know how close we were to going to war with the Russians in the 80's.

MouthfulOfGrass 06-16-2007 09:59 AM

Finished "Hunt for Red October" recently.

I'm a Russian history buff.

Currently reading "Icon & the Axe", a historical book about Russia and it's relationship with the church.

Have also been doing a study in 1 Corinthians.

Various Jeep & off road magazines.

Been reading through the factory serrvice manual for my '98 TJ.

I just finished reading The War of the Rats by David L. Robbins.
It's the book that was the basis for the movie Enemy at the Gates. The book is way better than the movie because the writer gives you gross detail of the charachters... Although, I will have to say that Jean-Jacques Annaud did a hell of a job adapting that book to the screen!

I'll have to read it. It's one of my favorite movies.

Finished one of John Nance's novels last night. Read 2-4 books per week for fun, lots of journals and such for work. And as a permanent (46 yo) college student several textbooks per semester.

Tried the books on disc thing a couple of times. Figured if I had that much time on my hands (35 minute commute each way) I would learn a new language so I've been studying Spanish for the last 6 months while commuting, almost done with the second series of three. Pimsleur Language programs.

The Last Testament of Lucky Luciano
Comment - This guy was full of himself - sheesh

before that

The Last Parallel:A Marine"s War Journal, by Martin Ross.
This was interesting because it was the same time period my dad was there. Different unit but the same crap.

Current book, Ace of Aces, The Life of Capt Eddie Rickenbacker

cavediverjc 06-19-2007 07:18 PM

Ahhhhh, books. My favorite pasttime! The last book I read was called SNIPER. It's a history of the battlefield sniper written by famed war historian Adrian Gilbert. It's considered required reading at work. Since I'm from the Florida Keys, I like alot of the writers local to south Florida like Carl Hiaasen, Tim Dorsey, James W. Hall, etc. Of course Cussler fits in there too, I have a number of first editions signed by Clive himself. That's one of my biggest hobbies (aside from firing large caliber weapons at bad guys), I collect first edition novels, many of them signed by their authors. The next book on my shelf is called FOLLOWING THE EQUATOR by Mark Twain. Good stuff!!
:)

Got the Look - James Grippando.



I really like Hillerman, and JA Jance, SW Mysteries are cool! The Hobbit Series has to be a Fav, doing the Harry Potter thing, too.
