So I've recently become an avid reader. Never thought it would happen, but its kinda become one of my favorite hobbies after a day of work. Right now I'm reading through "Fall of Giants" by Ken Follett. I don't know how good of a book it'll be, but it was recommended to me by the lady at Barnes and Noble because I liked "Pillars of the Earth" by the same author. But when I told her WHY I liked Pillars of the Earth (basically the character Jack - I just thought he was so similar to me), she seemed less excited about recommending this book to me.
So I'm trying to see what others are reading and what they think of these books as possible things to add to my to read list. And if you've read Pillars of the Earth and know of books with characters like Jack, please recommend them.
