Now on to Underworld by Don Delillo
Wow... nobody's read anything in a while, huh?
I just finished See Me by Nicholas Sparks. Nice novel with different characters than usual. Both have dark stuff in their personal history and of course it comes back to wreak havoc on their relationship. His stuff is the only romantic novel type things that I read. He puts in enough other action/drama events to keep me interested. For example, the main male character in this one is a MMA fighter.
I'm currently working on Alive by Scott Sigler. It's a YA type apocalypse/sci-fi novel I saw sitting on the new book section in the library and decided to try it out. I'm about half way through and it's a little weird, but pretty good so far. It's similar to Maze Runner in a way since the main character wakes up not knowing too much about the past and becomes the leader of a bunch of other teens trying to survive.
I've been reading both a physical novel and an ebook at the same time. I've been getting ebooks through my library's Overdrive account. I just started The Martian. I haven't seen the movie yet, and I find that's usually the better way to go, to read the book first. It's hard not to like a book that starts with the main character stating that he's "pretty much ed"
Actually, I'm reading Maze Runner right now. Almost finished. The movie was more like the book than I expected.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Martian book, and was delighted to see (twice) that the movie followed the book closely.

I just finished Skink: No Surrender by Carl Hiaasen. Good fun as always, and with some action and adventure thrown in for good measure.
I am still working on An Astronaut's Guide..., interspersed with small portions of Norwegian author Johan Harstad's Max, Mischa og Tet-offensiven.
Still reading Pratchett. Up to Hogfather now.
Ernest Hemingway A Life Story.
Just finished Smoke Jumper by Jason Ramos. Working on Reamde by Neal Stephenson (still!), also working on In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, and The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
Reamde is awesome!
Seven eves is tremendous as well!
Cameron Crowe's, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."
Next up is, "Old Man and the Sea."
Just ordered Dune to re-read after years---lost my original copy---
One of my favorites!
I just got a book on "Anti-Gravity"....
Yep.... It's hard to put down...
I'm currently reading both Truth or Die by James Patterson and Howard Roughan and Gray Mountain by John Grisham.
The fighting tomahawk.
Right now I'm in the middle of these three:
"An astronauts Guide to Life on Earth" by Chris Hadfield
"One Year After" by William R. Forstchen
"Den evige fred" by Arild Rein
Just finished "The Obstacle is the Way" by Ryan Holiday
Just started "Hagakure - The Book of the Samurai" by Yamato Tsunetomo translated by William Scott Wilson
I'm currently reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand for the first time in my life after a friend told me it changed his life. I wouldn't say it's life changing but I have found it to be a very interesting (although jaded) look into the extreme differences between socialism and capitalism which I've found to be very timely given our current political situation in America.
Just finished The $64 Tomato by William Alexander. Excellent read.
