Argghh, I don't like those. I read Anthem, by Ayn Rand in high school. Talk about an agenda. Although, to be fair, she wasn't trying to hide it.

Readers Digest...

The jokes are better than a lot of the articles.. and that isn't always saying much.

Ah... Hardy Boys. I think we've read just about every single one of the older hardback ones. 8)

Willard Price? Never heard of him.

I read that book and enjoyed it. My Mom liked it too.

My brother and father - well, suffice it to say that Chuck Norris will soon be visiting our house to roundhouse kick them in the face. :wink: (Poor unsuspecting souls... but they shouldn'ta dissed Chuck)

Now I'm currently reading:

Showdown
Obsessed - both by Ted Dekker, and
The Oath
Piercing the darkness
This present darkness
Monster
and House, all by Frank Peretti, and lastly - Silenced, by Jerry Jenkins.

I try to read slower nowadays(these blasted myopia problems), so it'll probably take at least a week to read all of them. :|

I got twenty books from the library today. Military intelligence, NCB weaponry, one on Mossad that I thought I'd read again, a book on Delta force and some on general warfare and modern warfare strategies, several novels, and four short story collections. :twisted:

That sounds strangely familar... 8) Not to mention awesome.

My parents actually banned me from the library several times because I checked out so many books. Then they wonder why they can't get some of my siblings to read... :roll: X100
