I'm doing a little light reading at work, during lunch.  

I'm currently over halfway through "The Grand Design" by Stephen Hawking.  

It's certainly a different way of looking at things, from traditional Newtonian Physics.

I read Stephen kings under the dome a year or so ago. It is an amazing book. A very long read but it is worth the time. One of the better books ive read in a long time.

I recently finished my first book since... Well.. English class in college.

"Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers" by Mary Roach.

Very interesting, and yet fun book to read. Who knew the University of Tennessee had "body farms" outside the campus studying the decay process? Fun fact, there is a geocache near the body farms...

There are "body farms" in Texas too, but I'm not sure if there are any geocaches near them.

What book inspired you to be what who you are now?

A motley collection of people rather than a book helped determine my chosen roads.

But, I must say John Gierach is my Patron Saint.

How about you?

Reading is actually my 2nd greatest hobby, so here goes:

 

Just finished Stephen Hunters - the Third Bullit, really nice twist on the Kennedy Assassination. Also worthwhile on the same subject: Stephen Kings 11/22/63.

 

I just love all of the Bob Lee Swagger Series by Stephen Hunter,

and although a bit older, still a good read: Brotherhood of War series by W.E.B. Griffin (9 volumes!) and by the same author: The Corps series (10 volumes) the first about the US Army starting WWII and ending just past the Vietnam war, the second spanning about the same era but covering the U.S.M.C.

 

Currently reading: Out of my League - Dirk Hayhurst, about a Rookie's survival in MLB.

Some things I have read recently that I really enjoyed:

 

The Poisonwood Bible

The Red Tent

 

Most recently I read this book "Freedom" by Jonathon Frazen.  I thought the characters were captivating but my best friend read it along with me and thought they were a bunch of whiny babies, so possibly I am not that discerning.

 

Right now I am reading this book called "The World Without Us" by Alan Weisman.  I think it is not-exactly-fiction-not-exactly nonfiction.  It's a look at evolutionary history of the earth in order to predict what a future would be like in this world if humans were to disappear.  It is the most interesting book I have read in a while.

OK, Jason, 1074 pages and none of them need coloring. This could take a while.
