The ones if finished reading are;
Enders Game
Rainbow 6
The song of Ice and Fire

To name a few. So Im looking for books along that genre



Please dont post books that will make you sound smart - but are a crappy read.

On a serious note, I highly recommend "Playing for Pizza," by John Grisham. It's perfect for any football fan, or lover of Italian culture. It's also eerily appropriate for any Panthers fan right now.

It's about a quarterback who implodes so badly during a game that the only team that will take him is a minor league team in Italy (see what I mean about it being appropriate for Panthers fans?). A great, breezy read. Makes me hungry when I read it.

I may pick that up Captroop. I read non fiction most of the time I need some good fiction.

I'm finishing up The Dark Tower Series again and will be going into the Unfinished Tales and notes from Tolkien. I read 20 journals/papers a day, the last thing I wanna read is nonfiction.

After reading Tucker Max's "I hope they serve beer in H*ll" and actually enoying it, I punished myself by jabbing a spork in my eye socket and will be unable to read books for another 7 months which is when the scabs are supposed to fall off.

Enders Game and the Hitchhikers Guide are absolute must reads. I have reread both books many times.

Life of Pi-Yann Martel
Stiff-Mary Roach
Mine-Robert R McCannon
The Stand-Stephen King
and for the women, The Red Tent-Anita Diamont


I am also hopelessly enslaved by The Southren Vampire series, True Bloood, I can help it.

Read Life of Pie - it was one of those boooks that I would typically never have read b/c of the most part I thought it was boring. but after I finished the book I found it was one of the best I ever read!
