Manhunt

I picked up this book the other day and it is AWESOME! Granted, I love reading about US History and particularly this era. But it's written in such a way that it's almost like a thriller happening in real time, with journal accounts from that era. Definitely a good read, in my opinion.

Anyone else got any good books they're reading?

no, but one of my favorite books, Stephen Hunter's Point of Impact was made into a movie called shooter... and Im not a big fan of dirk diggler, the story was great. I haven't read it since about 1995, so it may be a bit cheesier than I remember, but I really liked it...

I haven't had a chance... I usually don't go to the movies, and I couldn't get my wife to go with me, especially to see that one.

I'll probably end up at a hotel in a month or two and order it on the ppv systems they have that let you watch movies before they're released on video

How was Kate Mara in it? She's pretty fine...even though she's part of the NY Giants family
