Since you've read Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, have you heard of Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters or Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? All three are by the same author.


I did see those at the book store. Someday when I have money again, I'll have to pick one up. I leafed thru the Abe Lincoln one and it seemed funny. I've never been a fan of Sense and Sensibility so we'll see about that one.

I read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter about a month ago. It was pretty good. I picked the book up on the premise alone, as it had me busting a gut in the bookstore. People probably thought I was loony. It turned out to be a pretty good read.

Thanks for reminding me about that book, I always forget about it...

Wicked SUCKED...Yeah, it was dark, but I don't need to have to keep looking at a dictionary for words. Fuck that noise.

Read "Holes" if you haven't. "Winds of Dune" is a worthy read for a Dune fan.

Back when I was a kid, I got "Holes" for Xmas. I read it within a few days because it was such a good book. I loved it. It's actually sitting on the book shelf by my computer, now that I think of it.

I've read a lot of stuff by him and oretty much everything is great. He has a way to make sometimes stuffy material easy to get through.

I'm reading Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee right now. Good book. It was made into a movie starring John Malkovich last year. I haven't seen the film.

Which "Holes", the one where the kid gets dumped in a lake and told to dig motherfucker, or is there a different book with the same name?

Just got done reading The Driver by Alexander Roy. Really good book if you're into driving, racing, or cars. It details his record-breaking transcontinental run from NYC to LA and his Gumball adventures.

yeah...the one by Louis Sachar...who wrote one of my faves "Sideway Stories from Wayside School" and "There's a Boy in the Girls Bathroom".

I never read books but I recently read Beyond Belief by Josh Hamilton. After reading this it make me wonder how he actually survived all the drugs he did.

One Bullet Away-Nathanial Fick.

War-Sebastian Junger. This was the book he wrote before Restrepo came out. You want a real satisfying read hit this up and then watch Restrepo.
