Default What are you going to read this summer?

So yeah it is a little premature, with spring break just starting for many.

What are you going to read?

Darcy (wife) got me a Kindle so I am reading ebooks. Not all of the books that are out there will work on a Kindle. For example Dan John's books.

So on the Kindle
1. Last of the Mohicans
2. Japanese Mythology


Real Books

"Fighters Mind"
"Starship Trooper"

Calmly waiting for Neil Gaiman and William Gibson to put somthing out. Its killing me though.

A whole butt-load of books. I read a lot. Doesn't matter if it is literature or some of my favorite NYT best-selling authors. I always need to be reading something.

Aye, my answer mirrors the one above; I read a ton, so my list would be massive, and fluctuating; It depends on which authors release which books during the summer, as well as how much free time I have. As well, I normally spend a week alone in Northern Ontario hiking and camping, which gives me ample time to run through 3-5 books, depending.

In no particular order;

- 3-4 books of the Jack Aubrey series by Patrick O'Brian
- "Good Calories, Bad Calories", by Taubes
- "The Element" by Ken Robinson
- Wendler's 5-3-1
- "Under the Bar" by Dave Tate
- "British Generals" by Mark Urban
- "Alphabet of Manliness Redux" by Maddox
- Anything Bernard Cornwell releases between now and September
- "Paleolithic Solution" by Robb Wolf (although this will likely be an early September read)

I read a ton too, but I'm cheap, so I visit the local libraries often. I really prefer that most of my reading is for entertainment. I'd say ~10% of what I read is for education or enlightenment.

I do eventually get through most of the stuff written on training.

Libraries rule and IMO are such an underutilized resource. Coming from a library geek growing up I'm probably biased...

I enjoy hitting up booksales at libraries. Get bag fulls of cheap books when you can find them.
