I have a habit like several others to be reading several books at a time. Problem is that i often read most of the book and don;t finish it. thats whats happened recently.
Just kind of finished 'Island' by Huxley, well I've still got a few page to go.
Started 'Kingdom of Fear' by H.S Thompson. Amusing guy. A real character.
I do that with books I really like, especially the end of a series, its like saying good bye to a good friend. You get to the end, and theres nothing left to see. Hard to do!
I'm Re-Reading Tom Clancy's Net Force series... I liked them, parked em on the book shelf a few years ago. Someone in the writing section suggested re-reading books to figure out why you like their style, sounded like a good idea! (Kinda like meeting an old friend after a long absence.)
Also reading Stick and Rudder by Wolfgang Langewiesche, book about learning to fly airplanes, written in the 20's if I remember the bio correctly.
Then a few of the books suggested in the writing section of this board about learning how to write. Cracked open "Zen and the Art of Writing" by Ray Bradbury, but havent done much digging (Even though its tiny...)
