    Seemed to be some interest so I thought I would start a thread on it.

    Talk about any book, famous, infamous, unknown. One your reading etc.

    One of my favs: "Lonesome Dove" by Larry McMurtry.

    For an enjoyable book you wouldn't think would be, try anything written by Jimmy Buffett.

    right now I am reading book 5 of the tomorrow series written by Aussie John Marsden.

    It is about these teenagers who went camping in a place called 'Hell' which is a secluded area no one really knows about except them, whilst camping Australia is invaded (*******s) and everyone in their town is captured except the teenagers and throughout the 5 books so far (out of 7) they are fighting for survival whilst trying to 'cripple' the invaders.


    I also hired Raymond E Feist new book 'Flight of the Nighthawks', he is one of my favourite current fantasy authors and have read every book he has written.

    Black Boy - Richard Wright (Top 10 book ever by my favorite author).

    Native Son - Richard Wright (Favorite book ever)

    Autobiography Of Malcom X - Alex Haley as told by Malcom X (A facinating book if not inspirtational)

    Blindness - Jose Saramago (Nobel Prize for Literature winner. Reading it right now; creative delivery/style and a great great read thus far).

    I like Terry Brooks, his Sword of Shannarah series. Kinda along the lines of Lord of the Ring. I also like David Balluchi books, they have made a few movies off of them as well.

    Band of Brothers by Stephan Ambrose is a classic too.
