    I don't fully understnad the book put it that way. I understnad the book about 50-75%

    So I reread the chapters in school when we are assigned to and that will be my way of rereading and I will understnad new things. IT's been working so far.

      I usually like Sports stuff...like SI or ESPN.com, etc.

      All kidding aside, I like books that interest me. I like them to be action packed also. I like them kind of lively. I don't like to see a boring book, that doesn't seem to have a point, like Faranheit 451.

      I don't really have a favorite author, I just read whatever's good I guess. I don't really go to the library on my own religiously or keep up with what books are new and coming out but if I see a book that seems interesting, hell I'll read it...doesn't hurt.

        Good for you for taking the initiative, and going ahead and finishing, and at least making the effort to understand. It's a hard book, from what I understand, and I'm sure you're not meant to get it all right away...

          Snk, Pro Football Weekly is by far the best football publication in my opinion-- pricey but worth it, they employ professional scouts and the mag is exremely informative. . .

          do you have a style of writing you like-- sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction, anything in particular, or just whatever you happen to get started on?

                  Yeah, it's hard stuff.

                  The whole story is pointless IMO. I'd say the ending, but I don't wanna ruin it for you.

                      Thanks... I'll get there eventually... just not as fast as I'd hoped.

                              Nope, never heard of him. I will check it out some time if I remember.
