What is everyone here reading?? I know I am currently loving the walking dead comics!! The halo books im starting to get into also! What say you board?
I have been reading a lot for my college English classes the last few semesters. Enjoyed it so much I now want to teach English. Was never much of a reader until I started college at 24. Crazy right. Now I love it. Too bad I don't have more time to read an easy book on the side

There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
ohh i understand! I hated reading through college and before that! Luckly I was an engeering major so it never came up! Now I'm starting to realize how enjoyable it can be!
Finished up a book about a month ago about Stan Musial written by George Vescey. Just started on the Brokaw book The Greatest Generation.
"Never take for granted what it means to be a Volunteer." Peyton Manning
right now im reading a book called One Second After its one of those "Doomsday" books but its pretty good
Read a couple chapters of my old Hardy Boys books with my sons every night before bed.
Your team. All the time.
Last night was great. My 5-year-old says, "Dad, how come Frank and Joe don't call someone on their cell phone when they're in trouble."
I told them the book was written in 1962 - and many people didn't even have a TV then.
I read all of those when I was little...greatest books ever! They don't write stuff like that anymore.
Finished Ivanhoe last week and began Don Quixote on Tuesday. If you're into classic literature, you can't go wrong with Hawthorne, Dumas, Faulkner, Dickens, etc.
"What did he do? All he did was score!" - John Ward
I read those all threw elementary school. I hated books but i always loved reading the hardy boys!
Also read all of the Hardy boy's adventures when I was little.
Nowadays I'm much more into technical / science stuff - especially technical investigative things. If you like science and technical stuff, some good reading: NTSB Accident reports and public dockets. (Generally much more info and detail in the individual documents of the public docket than gets put into the final accident report.)
Dockets: http://www.ntsb.gov/investigations/dms.html (Much easier to find them if you know the accident ID).
Things NASA. NASA has a great website full of science reading. One of the best investigations I've read is the Columbia Crew Survival Investigation Report. (Found here: http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/298870main_SP-2008-565.pdf ). This report details exactly how the ship broke up - in detail. It focuses only on the time from deorbit preparation to final ground impact. Photos of recovered pieces, etc. The CAIB report did not go into very much detail, it mostly focused on the overall cause (hole in the leading edge RCC) and the institutional issues that lead to the catastrophe. The Survival report goes into intimate detail of the progression of damage and the breakup.
Novel called "Nervous for tonight"... grrat read
Clive Cussler. Just finished The Race and justed started The Kingdom.
Just started reading "The man who fed the world". About a guy named Norman Borlaug. He fed the world. Win the Nobel peace prize. He was a good dude, apparently.
