    I just spent like $70 on books the other day. Got 3 Kert Vonnegut books(one of short stories), the Complete works of Poe(with a badass cover I want to turn into a tattoo), and The Davinci Code(everyone raves about it, I have to read it I guess). I'm reading the Davinci Code, nothing strikes me as amazing yet, but I'm only on like chapter 5.

    What are you reading?

    Stephen Hunter. He's my current favorite. I have all of his books, and I just started re-reading them, this time in order. He is an amazing writer, if you like a decent shoot 'em up read, especially if you like snipers and hard-ass Southern sherriffs.

    I have 3 business books, 1 psychology book, 2 electronics books, 1 book about the effect of Jesus on AD history, "The History of the Modern Machine Gun", and I think something else just came in from Amazon last week.

    The DaVinci code was just recommended to me by another CK5er.


    I've read about 10 pages of each...

    Bone Collector by Anne Rice - pretty weird. I read a large variety of books, and try new authors all the time. I can't keep reading the same author over and over. The last book I finished was La Prisonnaire - true story (really enjoyed it). Bored yet? :)

    It was recommended to me by agnositcs so I'm reading it cause that peaked my interest. So far its delving into Naturism, something that has greatly peaked my interest in the past few months.

    Just started reading " Coming to America - The real story" by Tino Adognravi.

    It's the autobiography of a guy who came to the USA from Africa, and now he's building internet businesses. I got the book for free, because I helped him push his car off the road when he ran out of gas near the detail shop. Everyone was afraid to help the black guy, I guess.

    Anyway, the guy was coming from an interview at the local clear channel radio station when I met him, and he was in new york earlier.. he wanted to meet peter jennings, because he learned to speak english from watching him on TV, and he tried to meet donald trump.. I admire that kind of spirit. Turns out the guy lives a few towns over from me.

    Book is self published, so it could use some editing. The guys enthusiasm for the american dream is very heartening, and I like reading about people who don't give up. anyone interested can go to the eibbooks.com website and look for it.

    Both DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons are very good. They are kind of the same, in the way they are laid out, but suspenseful none the less. Recommend both. Each one took me about two days, couldn't put them down!

    IF I had more time I'd likely be damn near done Davinci Code by now. I just cleared 15 chapters of it, but I have to sleep now, school and all.

    I probably would have finished it in one day, but Mexico ws a little bit too distracting! Kind of hard to sit on the beach and read a book when there is so much else to look at :grin:

    I'm reading Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan series again. I loved them as a teen.

    Waiting anxiously for the new Harry Potter book.
