What are you reading?!

alternate topic: what are your favorite books?


p.s. the first person to state a reference book is their favorite book deserves a punch in the face.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I can't read Tom Clancy, I've tried, and they always sound so good by the synopsis but then I start reading it and I'm passed out almost immediately. The guy just can't keep my attention.

Also I normally don't get in more than one book a semester, but I have kind of a light load right now since I fucked up my schedule pretty hardcore so I was able to pick up a few more than normal. It's a nice change up.

i'm saving that one because it looks like it's going to be a lot longer read than the other two, not only in page length, but he does some weird shit with the formatting of the text. i really can't explain it. i might have to take pictures. but i have heard amazing things and am very much looking forward to it.
