What do you read?

Post by biggrobb1995 » Wed Aug 11, 2010 4:02 pm

When I was younger all I used to read was magazines. Lowrider, Orlie's Lowriding, and Street Customs. Then I started checking out the tuner mags and even a couple of the truck mags as well as Maxim and Stuff. Then I got introduced to real books. My favorite author is Dean Koontz. I also like Stephen King. So what does everybody else read?

Modified Mag still (I kinda know one of the editors)
Wired
GQ

Lots and lots of online blogs and "magazines". I don't read books. I listen to a few audio books but no regularly.

Haha, my favorite author is Stephen King, but I also read Dean Koontz.

I started reading Stephen King when I was probably too young, I was 12 or 13 reading a book called "Desperation". Had lots of sexual themes, but I liked the creepy story. My favorite book by him to this day is the book "Christine" about the 1958 Plymouth, although I really did enjoy the entire Dark Tower series.

Too young to read King at 12? Shiiiiiit... I read Firestarter when I was 10 or 11.

My magazine subscription list in 1995: Rolling Stone, Village Voice, Macleans, Canadian Geographic and the Saturday Toronto Star. Now I don't subscribe to anything magazine-wise. I do read books every now and then, mostly biographies (currently reading Phillip Norman's John Lennon). I've been trying to finish a book about the history of the King James Bible for almost a decade. Pretty sad when you consider the fact that I used to go through two or more paperbacks a week back when I was in school.

autoweek, car and driver.

modified car mags are the lamest shit ever, just a bunch of over enthusiastic, sub-par writers, going ga-ga about a stickered up nsx, or a two tone mini truck that should have died 9 years ago.

I have been on a Military History kick lately.

Right now, I'm reading a book on the Battle of Stalingrad.

I read the Wall Street Journal and BBC News. I just finished reading Pillars of the Earth, which was by all accounts epic.
