For the avid readers on the forum:

I have a book to recommend to you all. It's called "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss.

If you like Lord of the Rings and/or Harry Potter, then you'll love this book. The plot isn't a rehash, and the characters a nicely written and very three-dimensional. It's not a "kiddy book" like some claim HP is (though I've never agreed with that sentiment. after all, the HP books begin with a double murder, and the final one has a body count in the double digits)

So, if you've got a mind to pick up a good, well written, lengthy fantasy title, check this one out.

Just doing my part to broaden minds

Re: For the avid readers on the forum:

I read a ton, but mostly Military Fiction (IE Dale Brown, Clancy, Maloney, ect.), as well as thrillers (Grishom, Altmen) and pretty much anything dealing with the mob or mafia (non-fiction like Donnie Brasco by Joseph D. Pistone and Underboss by Sammy "The Bull" Gravano as well as non fiction such as anything Mario Puzo did, or Nicholas Pileggi). I don't get too much into the fantasy/Sci-Fi genres, although I have been going through some of the Star Wars books. I read a ton.

That is a wild book. Once I started I could hardly put it down.

Re: For the avid readers on the forum:

Yeah not much of a scifi, fantasy reader, although haven't seen any books that have sparked interest. I have been meaning to finish some more of Carlos Casteneda's (sp?) series though.

Right now I am reading "How to Rebuild Ford V8 Engines" by Tom Monroe. Does that count for anything?

Re: For the avid readers on the forum:

I thought Phillip K. Dick sounded familiar.

I'm thinking picking up Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. I want to reread Plato's Symposium and H. S. Thompson's The Rum Diary (got to get ready for the movie ). I also have The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe or well most of his work, and The Portable Emerson by Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Any other engine building/car books you guys recommend? Preferably for a 429 or 4.6L?
