What day is it?
Anyone else like to read and I'm talking recreational reading no types of medical books haha. I'm looking for reading suggestions as I've read ally my books several times over.
I enjoyed the Star Wars books back a dozen years ago. Did they ever get beyond "Han and Leia are in a major jam, no one can save the day but Luke, who's weighted down by some chick and needs to get a life"?Yes, I like to read.
I read mainly fiction. About half of the bulk of what I read is from the expanded Star Wars universe. The other half of the bulk of what I read is mainly thriller or mystery novels, such as from Michael Connelly, James Patterson, or Dean Koontz.
I also read magazines, mainly related to the Macintosh world, or ones about cars, photography, genealogy, and a few other miscellaneous subjects.
I haven't actually read very many of the newer ones yet, but yeah, and even back then...There are a lot of books now that take place between the two trilogies, or before the prequel trilogy. Some of them are long before the prequel, thousands of years. But they still deal with things that are in the movies, if only passing references. For example, in Episode I there is a scene where Darth Maul says something about how the Sith have been dormant, or silent, or hiding—something like that—for a thousand years or generations or whatever it was he said exactly. There are books that go into what happened a thousand years ago, and why the Sith have been "away" for all that time.I enjoyed the Star Wars books back a dozen years ago.

I keep one historical biography going all the time, right now it's George Washington, and pre-read juvenile fiction for my kids (they like Percy Jackson, Little House on the Prairie, Junie B Jones, etc). I also like Tom Clancy, James Patterson, and John Grisham.
That's the one I'm reading. He just finished learning from the mistakes at Valley Forge. Martha just joined them for the winter of 1777.Currently reading a biography of George Washington.
It's a fantastic book, and it doesn't feel like a biography. I must say I have a newfound respect for President Washington.
Hot Lights, Cold Steel is a great book! And yea, new authors and the old classic books are good cause they're either cheap or freeGosh, I'm eclectic in my reading style, but cheap too. I'll read a new author just because the kindle download is cheap. LOL. Lately I've been reading the Gutenberg Project books since they are free downloads. I am getting caught up on the classics, Jules Verne, Victor Hugo and the like. I also read a few Ken Follet books this year (Die Neidle [I think that's the spelling] and Pillars of the Earth), I like reading books recounting the residencies of Doctors like Hot Lights, Cold Steel. Fantasy is fun at times too and over the summer I read through the entire Wi'tch Fire series by James Clemens. When I'm in the mood for fluff I go to Nora Roberts and her smutty novels. I also like her pseudo name J.D. Robbs and the "in Death" series.
