EGO Is My Life!
So i was thinking at work, because all i do is mop floors and think to myself, and i realized it has been a long time since i have read a book. I have had to read books for assignments in school, but i couldn't remember the last time i actually read a book. So feeling quite disgusted with myself, i bought a book and plan to read it. I actually started and its not bad.

So the book i got was James Pattersons "Thriller" which is a compiling of a bunch of scary short stories from many famous authors.

So my suggestion to you is to sit down and read a book. I know its kinda weird to hear a 19 year old dude tell you to read more, but you should. It improves your vocabulary, sparks your imagination, and is actually a pleasing experience.

We are so consumed in our own technology that we make excuses like "i will wait for it to come out in theaters" or "screw this im gonna watch some family guy". But watching TV takes no skill, but reading does.

So go get a book jerks.
i just read Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama, Animal Farm and Mice of Men this week.
Too young for those bigger books but I've read some books like Ender's game, The Harry Potter series, some random books, and Brothers in Arms.
if any of u have ever seen the movie "Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai" (with Forest Whitaker), there is mention of 2 books. One, i don't know the name, and i am going 2 find out. The 2nd book is called Hagakure. It isn't a story, but a collection of thoughts/convorsations of a Samurai. Much of it is obsolete today, but much of it is beautiful warrior philosophy. My fav passage from the whole book:

There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and quickly run along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed though you will still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything.

i finished the book a week ago. and have read it thru 3 times since then. i can't put it down. and the passage about taking an enemy on the battlefield vs a hawk taking a bird... it helped my sniper skills in ava. believe it.
I love books, I was gonna make a favourite book thread but didn't know where to put it.

playing dod all the time makes it difficult to pick up a book though I do read often. I have to force myself to start one, then I can't put em down until I've finished.

I just finished reading Ian McEwan's - On chesil beach and I am now starting Death of a salesman.
im reading a book that is about 3 or 4 inches thick.....but its about blood and fighting :D
OMG! LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO OUTBREAK!!! HE IS TELLING US TO READ BOOKS?! WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO NOW! I feel bad for our childern who must live in his shadow and not know his former happiness that he once allowed the world to enjoy!
i cant remember the last time i read a book (not related to school) couple of years i think besides magazines
I have a subscription to Easton Press; I get the Best Books of the 20th Century. Love books. These nice leather bound, high quality paper books are my pride and joy. I could reread 1984 monthly. I read One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, it was incredible. It was very entertaining, funny, yet poignant at the same time. An easy read - the author isn't trying to impress you with his writing skill. I just finished Stephen King's Dark Tower I - thought it was only so-so... Currently I just started reading Dune.

Here's a cool site: [link=hyperlink url][/link] Post some books you have and don't want, and you can get other people's books for free.

Yeah remember when (us older guys) were kids... we actually went outside and played, rode bikes or skateboards, even just threw a tennis ball around... I never had a video game system until I was in 11th grade and got my first computer, a Commodore. That's when I started gaining weight, I'm sure of it now.
Just read A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah. This book will blow anyone's mind. It's the memoirs of a former child soldier who grew up / fought in the civil wars in Sierra Leone in the mid '90's at the fragile age of 15-17. This will truly make you change your perspective on every day life.

As for what I'm reading now, With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa by E.B. Sledge. This is the memoirs of a US Marine who fought in those two battles. It is unique in that it is solely about his experiences as a grunt, and does not include any grand strategy or other things that are typically included in these books.
