    What are you reading now?

    Continued discussion from previous thread.

    Right now I'm reading Baja Oklahoma by Dan Jenkins, One Very Hot Day by David Halberstam and Epic Rivalry: The Inside Story of the Soviet and American Space Race by Von Hardesty

    General Lee's Army: From Victory to Collapse by Joseph Glatthaar

    I've just started it in the last week or so and it's really good so far. I can tell he did a LOT of research, including on the demographics of those who jointed this army early on, even before Lee took charge of it. I really look forward to the rest of it. I have some time off work today & tomorrow & hope to spend a lot of time reading this. It is very readable and enjoyable

    Re: What are you reading now?

    I have been wanting to get "The Passage", by Justin Cronin, the new weird zombie vampire book, that is supposed to be part of a trilogy that is also being made into a movie. It appears to be something that Stephen King really digs. Has anybody read this?

    Re: What are you reading now?

    I actually just finished it LoganBuck. I thought it was good for the most part. I wouldn't say it's anything groundbreaking or new for the genre but it's well executed and I finished it in just a couple of days because I was pretty hooked.

    It's tough to pass full judgment also, since it's a trilogy, there are a couple of small criticisms I could make but it's possible they'll be fixed or answered in future volumes.

    I think the movie is probably going to be a huge success.

    I just finished James Hirsch's biography of Willie Mays. Very good baseball read.

    I'm reading the Blind Side now; even better than the movie (which I really enjoyed).

    I loved "The Blind Side." I have just started John Feinstein's "Living on the Black."

    Loved Dan Jenkins' stuff. Jeez, I read this back in the early '80's. This is Juanita Hutchins, right? I always wished I could be as witty as these books.

    Also recommend "Semi-Tough" and "Life Its Ownself".

    Yeah. He's really funny. I didn't enjoy this as much as I liked some of his other stuff.

    I don't think I've read those yet. I've read Dead Solid Perfect; You Call It Sports, But I Say It's a Jungle Out There and Fast Copy.

    You Gotta Play Hurt is another pretty good one by Jenkins.

    I've been kind of stressed with work lately, so I've just relaxed the last couple of nights with Zits and Get Fuzzy comic-strip collections.

    About 1978, I think all the boys at Harding Jr. High School in Hamilton, even those who weren't regular readers, read that book. I still vividly remember the scene in the TV truck.

    WHAT is that about?? I'm intrigued.

    I am reading Lost Souls by Nikolai Gogol. It's very funny at times, but I wouldn't exactly call it a barnburner of a book.

    Started "Cat's Cradle" last night. That's why I love Vonnegut, it just flows.
