Really good boxing books

The Dark Trade - great book following the rise of Toney, Naz, Roy Jones and several others

Tunney - great book coverin Gene Tunney and Jack Dempsey

Unforgivable Blackness - the book to read on Jack Johnson

When the World Watched - Louis vs Schmelling broken Down on so many levels (stylistically, politically)

I can't recommend George R.R Martin's A Song Of Ice and Fire series highly enough, if you like fantasy you'll love his novels.

I'm reading A Storm of Swords right now, the whole ASOIAF series has been epic, I just finished reading an extremely shocking chapter where 2 of the main characters were killed off...I really have mixed feelings about the whole thing...not sure where the book is going but I'm interested to find out. It doesn't surprise me, though, considering George R.R. Martin has been very bold in killing off main characters since book 1.

Highly recommend it though.

A Storm Of Swords IMO is the best book in the series, so much stuff goes down. That scene was shocking but there's another one that forced me to put the book down for 5 minutes because I was so shocked.

Holy shit...spoiler alert...

Arya too??????? Son of a bitch! I sincerely hope that chapter ended abruptly and she's not really dead. I think I'll take a few days to reflect before picking the book up again, I'm just a tad disturbed by the past few chapters.

See iin the chat box if you look at the tab titled others click on it and you'll find the option to cover your comment with spoiler.

Arya is fine, in fact she's got a great chapter coming up.

No problem. Glad our 4th best player could become your franchise player. Good luck making the playoffs.

Reading the Day by Day Armageddon trilogy by L. J. Bourne.

Pretty cool. Intelligent read presented in journal entry style.

I recommend to any ZA/post-apocalyptic/survival fan.

Read that book Robopocalypse yesterday. Pretty good. Reminded me very much of World War Z except with machines. 8/10

I can't beleive how fast Weezy reads. He has down time at work alot and he just crushes whole series of books that are 1000 pages a book. It's just insane to me.

I read pretty fast. If I don't finish a book in a day or two there is a good chance I won't pick it up for a several months.

Put American Gods on time out last night, it's real good but had a bug to read Cormac McCarthy's The Road.  Great book and the prose is inviting to the tale.  Depressing book but very solid none the less.

So I read American Gods, I thought it was good, sucked me in in the end.

One word to describe it, Interesting. I'm still deciding what I make of it, but just an interesting read all around. I'd of liked to see more of the Coming to America sections from the past, those were pretty cool. I think Laura was my favorite character overall, she was funny. Not a book for everyone, but I enjoyed it.



Just got may hands on a bunch of Deathlands books:
Encounter
Pilgrimage to Hell
Red Holocaust
Neutron Solstice
Crater Lake
Homeward Bound
Pony Soldiers
Dectra Chain
Ice and Fire
Red Equinox
and Northstar Rising

Just started Encounter this morning. Seems okay. Anyone ever read any books from this series?
