        If you like Chuck then check out Survivor and Fight Club.

        I'm almost done with the third book in the Wicked series; A Lion Amongst Men and I'm enjoying it very much. The first book, Wicked, was great! The second, Son Of A Witch, wasn't that great, but the series is pretty darn good. It'll give you a completely different perspective on the Land of Oz.

        If you're a Wizard Of Oz fan, then this is almost a "must". Even if you're not, it's so far different that you'd probably enjoy it. It puts an adult and cruel look at Oz as the first book follows Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West. The second follows Lir, Elphaba's son. And the third follows Brr, the Cowardly Lion. I'm sure there will be more at some point, possibly following Nick the Chopper(the Tin Man) and the Scarecrow... or at least... I'm hoping.

            Ive read most of Dan Brown's stuff. He's not a great writer, but he can tell a decent story.

            Read a book called The Journal of Professor Abraham Van Helsing. This was actually pretty good. Its told from the viewpoint of a journal written by Van Helsing and it details events of his life before and after his encounter with Dracula.

            Currently im reading Frankenstein.

              On a serious note, one of my favorite books that I've ever read was called "Kite Runner"... or I think it was. Maybe "The Kite Runner", but it was a great read.

                Love the Avatar, DrResin.

                That's another good book right there - or at least Graphic Novel. Another great Graphic Novel from my childhood is Batman "Year One".

                But if you prefer, "Book" books. There are too many to count!
                The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                      Wow, we like a lot in common. This was my favorite book I've ever read.

                        I'll have to check that out. It's sounds interesting.

                        The Kite RUnner was GREAT book! I refuse to see the movie for that reason. The author wrote another one called something like A Thousand Splendid Suns that was awesome too. So, if you like Kite, go pick up the other and read it too.

                          Another of my all time favorites is Swan Song. It tells the story of a few different groups trying to survive after nuclear holocaust. It's more science fiction, but not with the electro transporters and aliens and stuff like that.
