[Other] What are you reading?
« on: August 26, 2013, 03:36:15 PM »
I dont know where I would put this, but I thought I would start a topic where the community could discuss, suggest, or just list the books, comics, novels and other literature we are currently reading.

To start off the topic, my favorite 3 authors are Michael Crichton, Dean Koontz, and Eric Nylund. My favorite novels are Odd Thomas by dean Koontz, Ghosts of Onyx by Eric Nylund, and Intensity by dean Koontz,

Recently the only fiction books I've read have been Michael Crichton and Stephen King. I'm not really a big fan of fiction anymore.

A really good biography is John Sculley's Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple. He tells his story from beginning at Pepsi to his times at Apple. I really liked it.

have you read the Frankenstein series? His version of the old story was really well done imo

Not sure which author you are refering to, but no. Last book I read was King's Cell.

Was referring to Koontz. I've only read around 10 of kings books. He's good but something about the endings didn't seem right to me

I always prefered Koontz's novels to kings for having some really consistantly good work.. Lightning, Watchers, Phantoms being among my favorites.. I just ordered A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog by Koontz for 1 penny off Amazon will typing this up.
