    I don't like Playboy. You could cut off the models heads, and they'd all be identical.

    Saw the movie, Kevin Costner, I think?
    Don't have much time for reading, lately. Used to bring a book to read on lunch. Now, working nights I usually sleep for lunch!

    Here's what the author thought of the movie.

    I've been thinking about picking that up, it got excellent reviews. If you like first person accounts check out "With the Old Breed", E.B Sledge's personal story of the fighting on Peleliu and Okinawa. One of the best accounts of front line combat ever written and a fixture on the Marine Corps reading list.

    Wow, I had forgotten all about K Costner's movie. I don't think I ever did see that movie. I'm gonna have to watch it now. Thanks!

    David Brin seems to be a real down to earth kind of person and I love almost every book of his that I have read.

    I am currently reading Watchmen.

    I don't read that many books anymore, but magazines? Too many. I subscribe to Road and Track, Car and Driver, Cycle World, Classic Motorcycle, Trains, and Classic Toy Trains. I also read the paper, just the front page, local and ED/OP sections. Than there are the political websites I read online. And then there of course is the BC.

    Did you start thinking about The Stand in relation to the swine flu?


    I used to read a lot of fiction , non fiction. Don't have the time , inclination anymore. I think I read a lot of posts on browncafe. If I do read fiction at this point, it will be a dean koontz book. Predictable and it won't depress me. I only need to read the first two chapters to know where it is at and where it is going and then the last chapter to see where it went. And then over a week, I'll read the other chapters to confirm what I already know. He writes with a template.

    I love to read as well, and because of work don't get to do it as much. I read just about anything. Murder/suspense, romance, sci-fi and sci-fantasy, even how to and diy and help yourself. Some of my favorite authors are: Micheal Crichton(one of the best authors), Robert B Parker(do you remember Spencer for Hire on TV), Vince Flynn(if you like espionage, he writes the best true to life trillers), Jonathan Kellerman(another great murder mystery writer), Nora Roberts and Sue Grafton(murder mystery).

    The Stand is one of my favorites too. Most recently, King returned to his style in Duma Key. He strayed there for awhile with some western themed books that I didn't read. I sold my many King books at a garage sale to make room for my Grisham books.
