Man it's been awhile since I posted in here so I'll try and remember all the books I've read- right now I started a Star Wars series book since I've avoided reading any SW books in a long time because they're generally pretty bad- this one "Outcast" is alright so far. Before that "The Towers of Midnight" the latest Wheel of Time book- decent book but really has left to much of the story to be crammed into the final book.

I read book 8 "Toll the Hounds" of the Malazan series and even though it was no secret what would happen to a key character at the end was a great book and excellent ending. This series is pure creamy goodness.

I read Steve Alten's "Meg" book if you like sharks and bad writing this is the book for you.

I was missing soccer since the end of the World Cup so I read "The Hand of God" about Diego Maradonna- good book though I wish it had more about his playing and not the off the pitch life.

Can't think of any more right now.

I do like sharks and bad writing. That's why I STILL have my copy of Steve Alten's The Trench.

I started BJJ about 6 weeks ago so the bulk of my reading has been Jiu-Jitsu University by Saulo Ribeiro. I've also been rereading my Russian edition of Winnie the Pooh (vinni-pukh i vsye-vsye-vsye) and it has hilarious tweaks, as in Owl is not only female, but a babushka.

Reading "The Happiness Project" to get my head on straight for 2011. 2010, in a lot of ways, was a far worse year for me than 2009. I can't wait for this year to be done.

Also reading "For the thrill of it" by Simon Baatz. It's about Leopold and Loeb, two men attending the University of Chicago who tried to commit the perfect crime, just to see if they could do it.

I've recently read Jigoro Kano's Mind Over Muscle. A must read for anyone who wants to know the correct approach to judo both on and off the tatami. Some parts are out of reality(Kano died in 1938. and has a very different outlook on Judo as self defense).

I am not currently reading anything but I have been entertaining the idea of reading through The Catcher and the Rye again.
