Long day for me and it gets longer....my work has us on mandatory 10 hour days again. So between Monday and today I am already at 21 hours, and still have more to go today. Need some topics to get me going. This may not be the best, but oh well.

Mine last book I have completed was:
Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock
Which is a book about Sammy Hagar's Life.

Thought it was pretty awesome. All his tour stories were pretty amazing. Good read for me especially because Im a huge Van Halen fan...(someone will eat that up, probably Fleek)

Rage by Stephen King, it's banned over in the US because you guys carry it with you to all the school shootings you do -seriously. It's a short story more than a book, but it's a good read.

Book I want to read next is the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, a Chinese classic. Apparently an epic- like Homer's the Iliad, but asian.

Edit: Also want to read A Kingdom of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin - recently made into the popular 'Game of Thrones' series

I used to read a lot before this new job. At least 1 to 2 books a week. Was going to get a Kindle or some Ebook reader but I would rarely use it now.

Last book was



and




Good inside books on the late night wars when Carson was stepping down and then the whole NBC Conan thing.

I'm reading All Creatures Great and Small right now, never read it before and I like it a lot. Finished The Amityville Horror and Rosemary's Baby in the past month and both were waaay better than the movies.

I tried to read 50 Shades of Grey a couple of months ago, and although I've walked out of movies before, I never just put a book down and stopped reading it until this smoldering turd. For all the hype behind it, I thought it was just awful for the 60 or 70 pages I read. Maybe it got better, like if someone else wrote the rest of it from that point on and there were some zombies or vikings introduced to the story, but it sure didn't seem like it was going down that road...

It's been years since I've read a book. I used to read Dean Koontz all the time, but the last book I've read was probably Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Is it set in the same world as Kingdom of Ice and Fire? (the one Game of Thrones is based on)

Digging The Vein by Tony O'neil
Its about a British lad who moves to LA to become a writer & instead becomes a super drug addict! SPOILER: The lad is Tony O'neil himself!! Its an auto-biography! haha

The Hobbit by J.J.R Tolkien
Decided to refresh my memory after seeing the trailer for the new movie! CANT FUCKIN WAITTT!!

Music at Night by Aldous Huxley
Anything by Huxley is mesmerizing. IMO the greatest writer of all time.

Reading isn't something that I find a great deal of pleasure in. Frankly it feels far more like work than leisure to me. As such, I'm just not interested in stories. I need to be able to gain some sort of knowledge to take away for the time that I've invested.

In the process of finishing:



After which I'll be getting into:

There is a chapter on Group Theory and it's uses in QM. Also, a chapter on Complex analysis, although it is a wise idea to read a book entirely devoted to this subject.

Overall, I like this book very much.....Daddy ChaCha recommends this

I'm with bojanglz and grappler. Although I do find occasions where I get lost in a book, it's rarely while reading any kind of fiction. The last books I read were actually books I wanted to reread.

I've never seen the show of the same name, but I recommend "The Elegant Universe" to everyone. I know I referenced it on the PG before. Amazing introduction to physics, you don't need to be mathematically or scientifically inclined for it to make sense. Brian Greene is amazing with metaphors. This book changed my perception of life itself. Not because of string theory, but just the breakdowns of proven Newtonian and relativistic physics. Very eye opening.


"The Tao of Physics" changed my life, and perception thereof, yet again. It compares quantum physics to Eastern mysticism/religions like Zen, Buddhism, Hinduism etc. AMAZING book. It basically shows the teachings of these ancient religions to be physically proven through quantum physics. Insane stuff.

If you have a closed mind, you won't enjoy it.

Lately I have just been reading whatever is cheap for Kindle so nothing too deep. Currently I'm reading a short novel called " Bones: The Complete Apocalypse Saga" yeah its a zombie book (shame on me) but it is different because it is told through the eyes of "Bones", a police cadaver dog. I'm not too far into it but so far I enjoy it for what it is. Maybe it's just because I love dogs.

I wish I could do that. I'm the exact opposite though. Usually, if I'm not hooked within the first few chapters, I'll give up.
