Thanks, unfortunately it has to be a fictional story of some sort so I'll use Larry's recommendation for an option for my book report book, however will check out The Art of Deception as well for a future book report, but more likely just as a reading book. Happy

Someone I know online showed me an online book called John Dies at the End. So far it's an interesting read!


Damn, too bad. My next suggestion would have been "The Alphabet of Manliness" by Maddox.

It's what you get for reading Larry Potter. They're enjoyable books, but I always feel guilty reading them, since the writing is so rubbish. It's like I'd feel if I was reading a Clancy novel.

Goodness me it's Larry Potter! You're a wizard Larry! Don't try goin bumping into train station walls just yet though lmao lol (ahem)

Anywayz I'm currently reading 2061 Space Odyssey. I finished 2010 few months back and got the 2 sequels to it 2061, and 3001. I simply CANNOT but follow up on the series after the amazing book and film 2001 Space Odyssey.

Next book on my list is the classic "1984" by George Orwell. I really loved his "Animal Farm" and really looking forward to this. No spoilers please! Angry

Just got paid for a new project and I almost immediately went to Landmark and purchased "The Days are just packed" a collection of Calvin and Hobbes comics by Bill Watterson. The last collection I bought was back in 1995 and 1996 when I got "Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat" and "10 Year Anniversery Special" through Scholastic my mom ordered for me.. I started reading and following Calvin and Hobbes in the newspapers since I was seven and this is STILL definitely THE greatest comic strip ever made!! Happy

I'm saving up to buy 'The Complete Calvin and Hobbes"

I just read Women by Charles Bukowski. Well, I liked it, but Factotum and Post Office are his topnotch.

The Complete Chronicles of Conan by Howard; It's a brick, and I have been nibbling at it since last summer, about half-way through now.

(Interspersed by other shorter books of course, it's too much to cram otherwise.)
