Thread: What Are You Reading? TWT Book Discussion

    Finished The Snow Angel by Glenn Beck in just a few hours. It is really well written. The bad thing is that by the time you realize that it's a chick book, you're halfway through and may as well finish. I would compare it to a Lifetime movie your wife forces you to watch. When it's all said and done, it is pretty good. You just don't want your buddies walking in on you while reading it.

    I am now midway through the Sammy Hagar book, Red. It's pretty good. Haven't got to the part where he starts slamming the Van Halen brothers yet. The forward was written by Michael Anthony and if Hagar is as harsh on the brothers as Anthony was......wow!

    When your done with that, let me know if it's any good. I wanted to read it, but wasn't sure if it was going to be good enough to warrant the 5 billion pages.

    Just finished the fourth book in the "Game of Thrones"/"Song of Ice and Fire" series that I've been working on over the last two months.

    Loved the last one just as much as the first, looking forward to picking up the fifth book in the series sometime soon.

    I'm about 2/3 through it. If you're a fast reader (I'm not) and a Stones fan (I am), it's worth the read. Otherwise, wait for the movie or buy the Cliff Notes.

    About half way through the 2nd book in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series that Jensen referenced. I can't recommend it enough.

    I watched the first season of Game of Thrones, which prompted it. The show very closely followed the first book, so when I read the first book, I expected it to be a slog, as I knew everything that would happen. I couldn't have been more wrong.

    The first book was enthralling, and I was drawn right in. Now I'm working through the second book where I'm learning stuff I had no idea about, and it's even better. I repeat, I can't recommend this enough.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...
