I bought A dance with dragons and Catch 22 just yesterday. I hope I'm able to find some reading time soon, otherwise I'm gonna go crazy.

Blood Meridian is what I'm currently reading and its a masterpiece. I'm also in the middle of Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson and its nothing special.

Get on it, ZeN. I won't tell you what happens in it, but pretty much every chapter will make you almost unable to put the book down just so you can find out what's going to happen next.

The book has so much detail that I'm thinking whenever the next movie is released based off of Catching Fire, it'll be tame because they'll have to make the movie 3+ hours long just to capture every detail.

Nothing, i consider reading the biggest waste of time (its not as good of an experience as you would watch a good movie of that plot instead, in 1-2 hours accompanied with people/friends/GF instead of days with letters.. alone), unless its educational or something really interesting of a figure/thing you like (basketball, martial arts, gandhi, bruce lee, magic & bird, jordan, whatever)... but even then i would prefer image/sound

You'd rather slurp on LeBron's balls anyway, so it's no surprise.


Reading is a waste of time, yet trolling the NBA forum isn't? I see you're doing something productive with your life.

Yep.. thats not the issue, problem is it is the most boring thing ever, its just personal preference i guess, an acquired taste.... for me its not as good of an experience as you would watch a good movie of that plot instead, in 1-2 hours accompanied with people/friends/GF instead of days with letters.. alone, unless its educational or something really interesting of a figure/thing you like (basketball, martial arts, gandhi, bruce lee, magic & bird, jordan, whatever or hell even insidehoops if that counts considering this is more like chatting/talking)...

Thats just my opinion...

Waste of time? Maybe... but its fun... fun like hell....

Beats being a sour puss virgin sitting at home dead serious with no sense of humor reading absolute nonsense entire days..... (hey now, you had it coming)

How is it obvious? You dont know me, there is difference between truth and in your case delusion...

Calm down guys, its just my opinion... there is nothing wrong with reading, you may find something i read/like "boring / waste of time", understand? No reason to feel butthurt about somebody not sharing each and every of your opinions

That's the thing, if you don't like reading, don't fucking post in this thread. Reading isn't about going through a story to say, "Yay! I finished it!" Some stories actually have deep meaning rooted in them that require a comprehending mind to unveil and dissect. Some novels can even enlighten a mind and cause change of lifestyles, ya dig? Of course, you don't. All you care about is trolling.
I bet you're the same douche bag who sits in an English course wondering why Lord of the Flies has a talking pig head named Beelzebub in it instead of actually trying to understand the meaning behind it, right?

Your time is clearly better devoted on attacking anyone and everyone who isn't as big of a LeBron dick rider as you.


Anyway, my wifey wanted to read "Mockingjay," so I bought this today at Barnes & Noble:



I've been reading it during my free time at work.
Epic so far.
