Just started this. It’s not exciting but it’s interesting as I love baseball.

Non Fiction:

Helen Corbitt, the director of the Neiman-Marcus Restaurants and a true creative cook as well as a superlative party-giver, has written a cookbook to help every woman cook wonderful meals for her own afamily and give memorable parties when she entertains. In the seventeen long chapters covering every aspect of cooking from new and unusual appetizers to cloud-light deserts Helen Corbitt reveals her professional secrets, making it easy for the reader to cook the same delectable dishes that she has served to celebrities.

I guess guys didn't cook back when this book was written? There are some interesting recipes. I gotta be careful with the binder and pages because the book is older than I am.

I am reading the third Wings of Fire book to my son right now, before that it was the Louis Lamour book The Californios. That said, the last two books I read for myself were "The Machine Stops" and "Erewhon." I would consider the former mandatory reading in this time and the chapters on machines utterly fascinating at this point.

I thought the consensus was that TCG doesn't read. :ROFLMAO: I'm a terrible reader, but I'm trying to get into it. I'm more of a person who gets into non-fiction stuff and I picked a terrible book to try "getting into" reading. I find the information to be incredibly important for everyone though. There are a ton of names in the book which makes things very difficult to follow, but the little details and lesser known facts make it an incredibly interesting read anyway.

My wife and I read daily so we go through a lot of books. Prior to getting kindles we would literally take boxes of books to donation houses on a monthly basis. Just due to the amount we read we grabbed kindles and have been through 2-3 versions of them over the years just because we wear them out.

I am currently reading the expanse series, just grabbed all the books as a bundle.

Spivitz Spivitz Stephen King is still my favorite author and the Dark Tower series was my all time favorite (except the last book). I have yet to read the comics or whatever it was after he received so much backlash. Look up Dragon's eye, don't remember if it's under Stephen King or his pen name. But another good book about another world where the dark man is a major player.

FINALLY finished Jenson Buttons book Life To The Limit today. I've pretty much only been reading it on my phone whenever I'm stuck at work for lunch so its been slow going, but being a Button fan since his early Honda days I really enjoyed it.

I think for my next lunchtime reading I might start up Star Wars: Ahsoka Tano. Forgot I even had that. It basically follows her time after she left the Jedi order in clone wars until she popped back up in Rebels. Should be good. I almost considered getting the audio book since its narrated by Ashley Eckstein

Since we have four threads on this, I went with the most recent one.

Just finished The Storyteller by Dave Grohl (Scream, Nirvana, Foo Fighters). I thought it was a good read.

Deciding what to read next, the Mel Brooks autobiography (All About Me), the Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) one, or the latest Brad Thor/Pike Logan one.

I'm actually reading that Mel Brooks book right now (y) Tho I think when he's describing funny situations or jokes, his style of comedy doesn't translate as well to written words on a page. You really have to picture him as you're reading it :LOL: Still has a lotta great stories so far tho. He's a legend. And if you do read that one and like it, I'd also suggest Carl Reiner's I Remember Me. That book was pretty great too. I read that one right before I started Mel Brooks
