So those of you that read books by John Grisham or Michael Crighton, what got you interested in either of those authors? I know one of them writes about a lot of "law" or "criminal" type stories.

Have I posted here? I don't think so.


In middle school I got hooked on Agatha Christie mystery / murder novels, and since then that's all I can really read recreationally (not a real word).

For magazines, these are my subscriptions

-Car&Driver
-Mopar Muscle
-GQ (just cancelled, I liked it for a while, but eventually couldn't take any more of the liberal crap)


I buy Guns&Ammo on the newsstand alot, as well as Peterson's 4Wheel & Off-Road.


For books, I'm currently reading "The Naked Capitalist" by Cleon Skousen. A couple months ago I read "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross.

I have to read a lot for school; mainly education books (like how to manage a classroom, etc). Currently I am reading for pleasure and it is Richard Knaak's War of the Ancient's Trilogy (Warcraft). I also like to read R. A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood, and Elaine Cunningham.

Most recently I read Glenn Beck, Arguing with Idiots.

This reminds me, I need to find more audio books.

I got most of the way through The Lost Symbol, but I wasn't paying attention too well so I don't really remember anything about it.
