What Are You Reading?

So right now I'm reading this book, recommended to me by our very own NY_Skinsfan, called Over the Edge of the World: Magellan's Terryfing Circumnavigation of the Globe

I'm about 200 pages in and it's great so far. Real-life adventure with a lot of first-person accounts. If you read one book this year about Ferdinand Magellan, make it this one.

So anyway, I thought I'd start this thread to see what other people are reading and maybe get an idea of what I should read next

Another good adventure book is They Shall Know Our Velocity. It's about these two friends who spontaneously decide to travel around the world when one of them is left a thousands of dollars and hand the money out randomly.

Also a surprisingly good read is Jenna Jameson's book "How to Make Love like a Porn Star"

I am currently reading a series of books called The Earth Chronicles. I am not a big believer in God so this topic is very interesting to me, although I do view these books as fiction (for the skeptics out there). Anyway, if you ever thought of how we all got here, i would suggest reading the first book at least, The Twelfth Planet...I found it very interesting.

I just finished up the James Patterson novel "London Bridges" the sequal book to "The Big Bad Wolf". Both were very good. Highly recomend if you like mystry novels, or if you have ever seen the movies "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider" with Morgan Freeman. Patterson's main charicter is Dr. Alex Cross, who Morgan Freeman playes in both movies.

Any how I am not sure as to what I will read next!

Re: What Are You Reading?

Who has a good historical non-fiction they would recommend? I have a Stephen King in the wings, but not quite ready for that yet.
