    Im reading these three at the moment (thank you kindle) the lynch book is the best I have read on him. it dissects all of his movies and his life. unless your a fan it would probably bore you. the Jerry stahl book is pretty funny,like most of his stuff full of dark humor, crime and dope. The 9 years under book is a pretty solid memoir about a 15 year old who worked in a funeral home for 9 years. Im a memoir addict and wil read almost any one that comes my way. im the same with documentaries. any ways what are you reading?? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I didn't want to but I gotta admit I love it especially reading at night. I have wayyyy too many books taking up space. If I do buy hardbacks I usually give them away after I read them.some books I will never part with though.

    I just bought a Kindle Paperwhite a couple weeks ago. Was going to get an Ipad Mini but I read that E-paper is better for your eyes than a backlit LCD. So far I've only downloaded free books. I just read:

    Willpower - The Missing Ingredient
    Beat Procrastination
    Man Without a Country
    The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

    Just started reading:
    Linux Command
    BASH Beginners Guide
    Beginner's Guide to Goal Setting

    Downloaded in case I need it:
    The World's Funniest Insults

    I got one as a gift a while back and it just sat in its box until recently. I love being able to just DL new releases though.

    I just finished reading this, and made a thread recommending it.

    And I'll probably read this one next.
