    What books are you reading?

    So I'm curious as to what you guys are reading? Are there any authors you consistently read? I have to read massive amounts for my work/research but I do love to read for recreation as well.

    One of my favorite authors is Clive Cussler, especially his Dirk Pitt series. Aside from Cussler for fiction I read a lot of history and science-related stuff, and a little philosophy. I want to pick up Tom Clancy soon, once I work through all of the Dirk Pitt novels.
    The harder I work, the luckier I get.

    Tom Wolfe - The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test , Tom Wolfe - The Kandy Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby. Both of them are very interesting reads about the introduction and actually the invention of LSD. No I'm not an Acid head I just find these types of books about the 60's interesting. Also bullseye I'm a big fan of zepplin and they have an auto-biography called When Giants Walked the Earth: A Biography of Led Zeppelin . Very interesting giving insite to the women theyve been with, how they became the band, etc... One of my favorite books

    I love True Crime (John Douglas), Augusten Burroughs is another of my favorite authors. Right now I'm reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo....having a hard time getting thru it though.

    On another note, I have not read Hunger Games but saw the movie and it was ok....

    it has nothing to do with the movie. Written byt the top Marine sniper (at the time) all about his life and battles. He revolutionised modern sniping in the marine corps.
