I am currently finishing the worst borefest of a book of all time well probably not all time. I got a book by a dude named ward carroll a best selling author of another book The Aide. My book is called Militia Kill. sounded cool on the back cover, kind of a David Koresch's cult thing with a military flavor. However the book (paper back) is 400 pages and 41 chapters whcih could've been shortened to 10 chapters and 100 pages. I can't believe someone actually pulished this crap. This is by far one of the most overwhelming reasons I hate to read books

You could use the recommendations of friends and Cafe members to choose your reading material. As opposed to picking them from their weird cult sounding name. ;-)

meh . . . those guys are idiots 8-o :-b

Besides I thouhgt it sounded like a cool military book. The first few pages I flipped through were interesting enough, ATF stuff. and then as it turned out after some charachter building pages it turned into a a big ball of crap.

Interesting thread, I'll have to go back and read the whole thing... ;-D

I just finished State of Fear by Crichton. I thought it was great. ;-D

Now I'm reading the latest Janet Evanovich book, can't remember the name. It's a series about this bounty hunter chick. They're pretty funny books, but nothing mind blowing. I've read the first 11 and 12 just came out, so I'm on that now. Quick reads, and good for a few laughs.

After that I'll be reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I've heard good things so I picked up a copy a week or so ago. I'm pumped. ;-D

I've read some of those. You're right, nothing too mind-stimulating. If you want to read and not strain the brain, they're pretty good.

in the process of reading "The Last Juror" by John Grisham, I really like his books, it's awesom so far. I really suggest it, but I also suggest reading "A Time to Kill" by him first, easily one of the best books ever, yes that's right, ever, I'm not joking. ;-D

Wow! You have a cool girlfriend. Let me know if she ever becomes single. ;-)

The series is amazing. The first book is kind of dry but if you make it to the second one you'll want to finish the entire series, guaranteed. ;-D

If your girl needs something new to read, tell her to grab Dune. Similar series and length, but more intelligent subject matter.

Makes out with her girlfriends, huh? I'm afraid I don't believe you.. I'm going to need to see a few pictures as proof. B-)

The Metroid series is one of my all-time favorites too, by the way.
