    The book thread aka What are you reading?

    Just want to start reading more books instead of just stuff on the internet. So any recommendations are appreciated.

    I'm kind of a book nerd...and a fantasy/sci-fi one at that :\

    But I'll read anything by R. A. Salvatore (his stuff is super nerdy though). The Song of Fire and Ice was good (first book is called Game of Thrones, might've heard of the TV show? Click here to enlarge ). I also really liked any book by Chuck Palahniuk (the movie fight club was based on his book), I really liked choke; it was pretty awesome. I've heard the Wheel of Time Series is good. I also heard the Dresden Files are good by Jim Butcher. I dunno, I read lots of Sci-Fi books like I said. I guess I really enjoyed Fahrenheit 451 and Toxin too. But those are kind of gross and you probably won't want to eat meat for a while after reading one of those. LMK what you think about those, I have more I can recommend but those are some pretty deep series so...

    I dont read novels. Novels are stupid. They are made up stories. They dont exist, dont try to convince me otherwise because you are stupid.

    So I like to read textbooks, history books or biographies.

    My favorite book of all time is "Surely you're joking Mr. Feynman!"

    My personal role model was Richard P Feynman the theoretical physicist. His life was probably the most interesting of anybody in this world.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    who ever is into a badass guy (sometimes badass chick helpers too) and guns/weapons and plotted by mystery and thrilling sequences will love the Reacher series by Lee Child. I've read a lot of them, a few of my favorites are One Shot, The Persuader and Gone Tomorrow. I also just finished Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell, an interesting book, surrounded with a lot of controversy, I've read that a lot of SEALs do not approve of the book, but I found it interesting, not being part of the Armed Forces, let alone the Special Forces.

    It is about his life. He tells you the story of his own life, in first person. He basically takes you on a journey from when he was a kid, what type of personality he had and how he ended up being one of the most profound physicists of this time. He was known as being sort of a very outlandish man, he hated structure and snobby politicians. He drank beer, loved to $#@!, and helped design the first atomic bomb at los alamos.

    He wasnt just a physicist, he was a renaissance man of this day. Everything he liked or showed interest in, he pursused. He like the bongos, so he went to brazil and learned to play the bongos. He like japan, so he learned japanese (or some of it). He was just a regular guy that showed interest in different things, the beauty of this man is that he was always just a regular guy and didnt need to put up a facade just because he was a brilliant theoretical physicist.

    Ok, I'm interested. I'll add it to the list.
