I'm almost done actually, I'm on the Carter-Reagan-Bush chapter. My late uncle was actually an investigative journalist that covered the "war on drugs," so a lot of what I've read isn't shocking, but I do think it's a must read for all.

Still reading the first book of Game of Thrones...entertaining. Helps that one of my co-workers loves the show and I can discuss it with him.

I'm now halfway through "Gringos" by Charles Portis. He also wrote "True Grit," which has been adapted into movie twice, most recently the Cohen Brothers.

great book so far. story about Americans living in mexico in the 60's... macho prose in the tradition of Hemingway, with some of the Hunter S. Thompson element worked in.

Just finished a book called the Magicians. Im not much of a science fiction fan but this book might make me one. My GF read it before I did and said it was basically Harry Potter goes to college. so theres swearing, drinking, sex..

Now im about 50 pages into "ESPN: Those guys have all the fun" basically the History of ESPN. Im waiting to get into the juicy parts about the Anchors and all there personality quirks. Keith Olberman was a real douce. Apparently, the earlier anchors partied their asses off bc thats all there is to do in Bristol at the time. Drink beer, snort blow, and pound strippers....
