Those all sound like real page-turners. I don't know, Tiki - if I were forced to read these books I might consider gouging out my eyes and claiming blindness as an excuse.
Fast Food Nation is ok, that's the only one I've started. !+) it's not gunna be fun in the these coming weeks reading the rest of these most likely terrible books! :-t

I'm all about learning and reading and my opinion is the more books you read the better, but for goodness' sake, they can't come up with anything more interesting than these?

Good luck, my man. Assignments like this make me glad that my high school days are LOOONG gone by.

Almost forgot...currently reading The World According to Garp, Story (about screenplays) and a collection of Hemingway short stories. Ernest is the man.

I just finished "Fear Nothing" by Dean Koontz.

What an incredible book! I've enjoyed reading Koontz's matieral for the past 12 years but haven't enjoyed a book by him this much since Intensity.

For those who like the supernatural thrillers with a solid plot and funny characters this book is worth the read. I finished it in a couple of weeks (I'm a slow reader) and I'm getting ready to start Seize the Night which is the second book to "Fear Nothing". This is the first time (that I can remember) Koontz using the same characters for two books.

I'm reading a book called Rules of Prey by John Sanford. I like it so far, although this is the first book I've read of this type of genre...

I'm reading The Pilgram's Progress by John Bunyan... finishing up the book in a few days. I liked part one better than part two of the book. Both are good though.

Next book on my list is Hinds' Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard.

I just finished Drop Shot by Harlan Coben. It was a good book but not his best.

Im currently reading Just One Look by Coben. I really like his writing style. It rings true to me.
