  1. Any readers out there? What are you reading? What do you recommend?
    I have been working on the Patrick O'Brian - Far Side of the World series. Great reading.
     
  2. Max Lucado mostly, this time of year, but I like Ray Bradbury occasionally.
     

  3. Ted Bell is awesome if you are into the "Jack Ryan" genre of book

    Just finished a compelation by Michael McIntosh of Robert Raurk's articles on Africa, that was great.

    And Mike Greenburg's book, "Why my wife think's I'm an idiot" is a fantastic book for anyone of the sports persuassion
     
  4. North American Whitetail, Bowhunter and Deer & deer hunting. Great reading!!!!!!!!!!
     
  5. anything Michael Crichton is usually pretty good.
     
  6. The Rainmaker, The Last Juror, Bleachers, great books....

    If you are looking for something to read quick, its kind of a teen book, but if I could find it, I would buy about 10 copies of it, and just read them over and over, is "Lion Hound", by Jim Kjllard (spelling might not be right), awesome book, a little under you maybe, but it's right at dean's level...hahaha

    Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters.....By Meg Meeker.
     
  8. C.J. Box is one of my favorites.

    Stories surround a game warden out in Wyoming.
     
  9. Don't have much time anymore, unless I am flying somewhere for work. I enjoy reading westerns written back in the 1930's-1960's by writers such as Loius L'Amour, Max Brand, Luke Short and Zane Grey. Louis L'Amour is by far my favorite. I have over 300 westerns and all but a handful of L'Amours...all in paperback.

    Can't beat A Sand County Almanac for a non-fiction read.
     
  10. Seems like it's almost all I do.

    Just finished Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (one of my favorites). Just getting ready to start Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man. Both of these are for my classes. When I get any time to read for strictly myself, it's usually Patrick McManus.
     
  11. Can't go wrong there. McManus is a hoot.
    I find myself just reading updates for work issues, takes up most of my free time.
    I have been reading more gardening books and building plans to start a greenhouse in the spring. I often re-read training books for dogs, eager to get the new puppy soon.

  13. JC - you really dug that post out from the past!
     
  14. Dr. Seuss ... I'm a dad ...

    I used to read for myself ... then I had kids. All I read now it seems is kid's stuff, hunting magazines, Cabela's & Mack's catalogs.
     
  15. Wildfowl for me, that magazine is great
