I was trying to read a free ebook on my iPad that I downloaded from University of Chicago, but couldn't figure it out so I started reading "In Praise of Folly" by Erasmus. It's quite a thicket of language to wade through.

Hi everyone,
I was just checking my kindle and you know how this is... I have loads of books but nothing to read! Well that’s a lie, I’m reading Stephen Kings -IT, which i think everyone knows one way or the other.

What are you reading right now?
I read the bible a lot is the only book i read most of the time. I read spiritual books too.

Old topic, but a good one for people who read books. Running out of books. Reading a CSI triple book at the moment.

I’m reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, it’s a bit slow, but it explores the philosophy of Objectivism and the beauty of freedom

I recently finished "Killing The Mob" by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. Now I'm reading "The Forgotten 500" by Gregory A Freeman.

Authored by a former corporate CEO. Exposing the left wing politics that have taken hold of corporate America. And his case that it is dangerous & undemocratic, when corporate America becomes a one dimensional mouthpiece for any single political position/party. Good, informative insights.

About 3/4ths the way through The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult, just finished An Innocent Baby by Cathy Glass, and started Grown Ups by Marian Keyes last night.

I have different books for different moods, haha.

Just finished "Sharpe's Waterloo" by Bernard Cornwell. Was probably my favourite of the Sharpe series.

Now I'm reading "Battleground Prussia: The Assault on the Eastern Front" by Prit Buttar.

This is an interesting historical fiction. The author takes the basic details of Columbus' first voyage, and imagines the backstories of the players involved. He creates slice of life stories for the Taino Indians, just before Columbus arrives, he creates dialog between Columbus & Queen Isabella, etc. I know this has been done before, but it's very detailed. Which I guess could be good or bad, depending on your interest level in this historical drama. I like that the author stated he wanted to tell an objective, realistic account.. instead of a moralizing review. I'm about 300 pages in, 200 pages to go.
