    I like history books. I'm currently reading the Kindle edition of this one.

    I read so much, and write to much at work that I don't care to read now. Get home and watch a movie or some good Sci-fi show.

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    Just finished Leviathan Wakes by James Corey. Been a long time since I enjoyed sci-fi so much.

    One Year After by William Forstchen. Recently finished One Minute After, same author. Both about life after an EMP terrorist attack on US (and Europe). Highly recommended.

    Re: OT: What book you reading?

    I recently finally finished a Stephen King book, Pet Semetary. I've tried reading his novels in the past, but for some reason, I would stop partway. I enjoyed this one a lot because the novel takes an expectedly dark turn, which is well-earned. In this context, the book is far superior to the movie that was recently released. The pacing in the movie is rushed and lacks the gradual tension of King's novel.

    I'm also reading Storyworthy by Matthew Dicks. The author discusses techniques for improving one's ability to tell stories on stage. While I don't plan on performing anytime soon, I want to be able to tell more compelling, vivid stories to the people around me. I'm practicing one technique that he calls "Homework for life." It's a practice that involves capturing a phrase or a short sentence each day about subtle, transformative moments in life that could be developed into full stories. These moments can involve something as simple as walking the dog and how that experience relates to an earlier time in life.

    I haven't been reading as often as I should be, though. I hope to reach a goal of 25 or so books by the end of the year.

    Storyworthy sounds like good read. I been lately staring into abyss of "positive career change" and ability to tell good story seem to be like essential part of success.I will look it up in local library.
    I loved Terry Pratchett and his ability to find these right story telling brilliants.
