I Am Bill W.
I picked up last week the Keith Richards autobiography "Life"
I'm not done reading it yet, it's a huge book but the guy is really well spoken and just a complete rebel from day one apparently. Will add it to the other thread about book collections with a more thorough review in the coming weeks.

Just finished the penultimate novel Towers of Midnight in the Wheel of Time series. It's by Robert Jordan and sadly he died after Knife of Dreams. He knew he was going to die before finishing the series so he left detailed notes on his vision of how the story concludes and even tape recorded and had close friends in the room as he told the ending so someone could finish. Brandon Sanderson is finishing the series and has done a fantastic job. The final book would have been around 2500 pages so they broke the final volume into three novels. The final book Memories of Light comes out next November. Towers of Midnight just released last week November 2nd. The series sort of started to drag but book 11 knife of dreams picked back up the pace and #12 and #13 by Sanderson have been fantastic.
I've been re reading one of my all time favorites:
My home town was carved out of swampland.
Anyone interested in the US food chain should read the following. It will change your eating habits forever.
The Omnivore’s Dilemma - A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan
Currently reading - In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan
Also worth mentioning:
With the Old Breed at Peleliu and Okinawa by EB Sledge - a fantastic account of the struggles of a Marine in two horrific WWII battles. The book (and author) were the basis for the HBO series "The Pacific"
The Good Soldiers by David Finkel - an excellent story of day-to-day life of an Army unit deployed in Iraq. If it doesn't bring tears to your eyes (many times) you don't have a soul.
My fav series until this day.
The teacings of Don Juan.
Right now I'm reading Drangon's Lance series : D. Cool stuff.
oh and lightning by dean koontz.
