    Re-reading The Hobbit for a refresher before the movie comes out. It's been about 30 years.

    I'm reading a Kindle book one of my friends wrote. "The Love Bomb" by Jacob Hackman. It's the true story of his relationship with his abusive ex-wife.

    Re-reading the Wheel of Time series (yes...again) getting ready for the conclusion coming in January. I've been waiting over 20 years to find out how this bloody story ends. And the Light willing, I'll see this Age come to an end.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner

    I'm re-reading the last two. I love the series but won't subject myself to some of those middle books again. The series was losing me before Brandon Sanderson signed on to bring it to a conclusion.

    The last book was excellent and I have high hopes for the conclusion.

    It's been great since Sanderson took over. Granted I love all his books so I might be biased.

    HELTER SKELTERby Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry. Read this back a number of years ago .I recently saw something from one of the reporters who followed the case back then on the biography channel. Figured id re read it don't remember all of the facts surrounding the case. I figured it was worth a read again that and i picked it up for $0.25

    I am in the process of reading the 3rd book of the Hunger Games.

    I just finished up 1776 and enjoyed it a great deal.

    Re: What are you reading now?

    started "Тома ранней истории" in my attempt to make myself more second-natured to cyrillic like i am with the Elder Futhark and the Futhorc alphabets. it's Icelandic "Volsunga Saga" translated into Russian. i figured going with something i am very familiar with would make learning it less annoying.

    This Machine Kills Secrets was an interesting read. Some thought-provoking scenarios are laid out in there.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Re: What are you reading now?

    If anyone wants any great reads...Read something by charles bukowski or Chuck Palahniuk..Both have their dark sense of humor..something i love...But Choke by Palahniuk or Invisible Monsters..Heard Rant was good too. Or Post office by Bukowski....Currently though I am reading The Hobbit...Great book so far..and coincidentally I left off at the same spot the movie did..with the book obviously being better than the movie so far
