    hmmm never read that one, gotta get on that, thanks

            Because reading a book is the only way to make yourself more intelligent? :/

            I'm reading The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue. It's a relatively easy read so far, not really interesting to me though.

            That is correct comahan

              Read the Bourne Identity if you haven't. And if you love it, read the Bourne Supremacy, the Bourne Ultimatum and The Bourne Legacy.

                i've heard those are really good books.

                anybody ever read the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson??

                P.S. Buck, you suck for picking the steelers for 12th in the power rankings.

                    I generally try to read non-fiction books, biographies and memoirs in particular because I like reading about interesting people

                      The Creature From Jekyll Island by G Edward Griffin is a good book.A bit hard to understand at some points but very well written.If I were to rank it from 1-10 Id give it an 11.

                        For school, I have to read Bridges at Toko-Ri, and Forbidden City.

                        The Bridges at Toko-Ri is a very good book. I'm about half-way done with Forbidden City, and it is also good.

                        Forbidden City: From School Library Journal
                        Grade 6-12-- Alex, 17-year-old war aficionado and son of a Canadian cameraman, accompanies his father to China and becomes enmeshed in the Tiananmen incident of 1989. He gets separated from his father, is befriended by some students, witnesses a good deal of the massacre, and is finally smuggled out by a student who pays for his liberation with her life. This is a blood-and-thunder story, and Bell tells it with gusto. Incidents are piled on one another, background descriptions are very convincing, and at times readers will almost feel they are there. All this amounts to an incredibly compelling novel. Curiously, when the protagonist is not in China, he becomes somewhat one-dimensional. The beginning is a tad contrived to lead to the real meat of the novel, and the ending is pat beyond common decency (in a grand, melodramatic scene, Alex destroys all his war toys back in comfy surburban Toronto). Yet the preponderant part of this novel is marvelously realized, partially from the immediacy of using first-person narration, partially from telling vignettes that really bring the time, place, and situation to life in a most memorable way. There is also a certain ring of truth about some elements of the story that resonates long after putting this novel down. In spite of the flaws, this is an excellent tale, well told, and a historical novel of note. --John Philbrook, San Francisco Public Library

                          a short account of the destruction of the indies

                          read for my history class

                          it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be; its a true account of basically how the spanish came and destroyed all the indians; graphic for its time (late 1500s)
