    Tell us what you're reading!

    Recently finished: Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer - I liked it better than I expected to when I first started. Hated McCandless at first but he grew on me a little. I want to see the movie now, but it's not on Netflix or Redbox so who knows if I ever will.

    Reading now: Paper Towns by John Green - My wife and her friend urged me to read it since I did like the movie The Fault in Our Stars. About 100 pages in and it's actually pretty good, and it looks like they're making a movie out of it next year.

    Next: Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big by Jose Canseco - Put this off for a few years because they never put it on Kindle, finally gave in and ordered the paperback. Very excited for this one!

    Oh, and I also found the complete Calvin and Hobbes set for $50 on Black Friday, so I'm slowly reading that.

    I have so many books I've bought that are sitting in my room collecting dust. I'll probably start reading Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story soon, though.

    I'm currently making my way through James Patterson's Alex Cross novels. I'm on Four Blind Mice at the moment.

    Once I've finished this I may take a break and read the Roy Keane Autobiography.

    It's really hard to sit down and read when I got a PS4 and a Wii U :)

    But last week I started to read One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, apparently one of the best 100 books of the last century. So far it's actually got my attention.

    The creator based the show off of multiple books including his own. Should be easy to find a list. @The Product

    Finished Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy about a month ago, and then I finally got around to starting The Stand by Stephen King, which has been on my list for awhile.

    After that I'm gonna try to tackle Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon (god help me).

    Just finished No Easy Day and The Energy Bus.

    My mom usually gets me a book for Xmas, but it will take mew about a year to actually read it.

    I have borrowed this book from a friend but haven't found time to read yet; The Road was brilliant, so I think I'll read this during the holidays. I'm close to finishing this one now

    Recently finished Darkness, My Old Friend by Lisa Unger. Decent book, probably will never read any of her stuff again tho.

    Read more this year than the previous couple for sure:

    The Dead Zone by Stephen King
    The Long Walk by Stephen King
    The Stand by Stephen King
    Misery by Stephen King
    Darkness, My Old Friend by Lisa Unger

    & I just started IT (Stephen King) two days ago. My third time reading it, probably my favorite book of all time.

    Blood Meridian's a lot tougher to read and more abstract than The Road, so keep that in mind when you start it. It's not exactly light reading, but very much worth it in the end.

    I love It (it was actually the first Stephen King I ever read). Been meaning to reread it because I read it back in 2009 or so. I guess they're making another film adaptation (I've never actually seen the original film), but I always thought it would be better suited for a mini-series. Come to think of it, a Stephen King anthology series on HBO would be the s---.

    The 90's adaptation was a miniseries actually, and Tim Curry played a perfect Pennywise. I don't see anybody doing a better job than he did tbh, but still excited nonetheless

    Wasn't the 90s adaptation only in two 1.5 hour parts, though? I've always thought it would be hard to do an 1100 page novel justice in only three hours, but I guess I'll never know till I watch it. I should really get on that.
