The last truly great book that I read was the Brothers Karamazov, by Dostoevsky.

Just finished reading City of Ember it was a good read but definately a "young readers" book but I still would recommend it (the end sucks though)
I also recently finished Legend by Goleman. It was a good read but I like the style which is like Rollins and to a certain extent clive cussler (which is a paramilitary group investigates weird happenings with a more supernatural twist)
Jeff Long. I liked Year Zero but I thought Descent and Deeper were better.
I am an avid King fan. My most prized possesions are the "bible" edition of The Stand and the Complete Dark Tower series in hard cover and first editions, also have the artist editions of 5-7 and the author edition of 7.
For those avid readers out there I recently purchased the Sony E-reader. What is this? This is a digital book that can hold up 140 some odd books and has slots for sd card and sony card. why would one want such a thing? for me I'm going to Afghanistan for about a year and can take a bunch of books with me that takes up the space of a dvd, the screen is flat (as in not shinny) and looks almost like paper. My wife also is thinking about getting one so our book collection takes up less space(plus I usually read a lot of my books twice) the books are not much cheaper(if at all) but my main concern is enough books to last a year so it works for me,plus when I run out my wife can down load a bunch to a SD card and send it instead of huge packages. something some of you may want to check out.

I don't seem to have the stamina to read a book all the way to the end. But I do read alot of military reference books and GI JOE stuff.
I don't know why I just can't seem to finish a book?!

They are making a movie based on the book starring Viggo Mortensen, it's supposed to be released this year. He's one of my favorite actors, so I have high hopes.
Negotiation's over. Sentence is death.

Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman. PHENOMENAL book. Couldn't give it a higher recommendation, anybody else here read it?
If you've ever thought there's just something wrong with Fox News (or for that matter, MSNBC, and CNN) then this is a must read.

Zbigniew Herbert's Collected Poems
Shakespeare: Invention of the Human
Also paging through Emerson for inspiration and refresher course.
In terms of fun reading, just finished "Appaloosa" by Robert B. Parker, of whom I am a long time fan. If you like his other work or westerns or just good writing, read more or less anything by Parker...and the film version of Appaloosa is damn fine as well. Will start the sequel soon, "Resolution."
Also reading "The Blade Itself" by Joe Abercrombie.
