Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.

Not really looking forward to seeing it on the big screen. I'm sure Bollywood will fuck it away, just like every other book to big screen translation.

Hagakure by Yamamoto Tsunetomo

Other top ones are: Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck, Tuesdays with Morrie by Albom, Civil Disobedience by Thoreau, The Republic by Plato, and The Art of War by Sun Tzu.

All of which will put you to sleep by the first chapter, but I couldn't put them down and I've re-read all of them at least three times.

Just read the whole Harry Potter series not long ago. Couldnt stop till I finished them all. I read for entertainment and to escape reality for awhile, so I usually go for fiction/fantasy type books. I just picked up "Olympos" by Dan Simmons the other day to conclude that series.

Every now and then I'll go on a reality kick...for a while I was reading everything I could on WW II. Band of Brothers by Steven Ambrose (the one they made into a miniseries) is even better in book form. He also wrote "The Wild Blue" which centered around George Mcgovern's flying career. Pretty good writer to look into if you like military books.

Btw, here's an old thread on this topic: https://www.sportbikeforum.net/showth...highlight=book

good taste in books my man, I try to keep a copy of Hagakure with me pretty much at all times. a condensed version, but it's nice to be able to open it up and grab a piece whenever I have a minute.

There's a book of little stories by Jorge Luis Borges (Argentinian writer) that has some really amazing stories. It's for sure one of my favourites.
On a completly different note i also really loved the "Lord of the Rings" triology .
But there are some more that i could include on one of my favourites.
I never have ONE favourite.

What little I actually read anymore...

I'm a fan of Orson Scott Card -- his Ender series is good stuff. Another book (completely different genre) that stands out in my memory is Cancer Ward, by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

"The Kite Runner" is an excellent read
"A hearbreaking work of staggering genius" another good one
"Sphere" by Micheal crichton was one of my favorites for a long time

Hagakure is a series of small words of advice written by a samurai lord in feudal japan. Basicly, every day of his life he wrote down a little tidbit of advice, sometimes really simple shit like "it's proper for a dignified person to carry an umbrella at all times, for even if rain does not fall, it's good to be prepared." and sometimes it's stuff that's much much deeper. But they're all short, ranging from a single sentence to about a page.

Dirty White Boys - Stephen Hunter
Red Dragon - Thomas Harris

" Jarhead " - was actually much much much better than the movie.

OhBrian, there is an interpreted version called Hagakure in Moden Life. I have recommended it to my friends that ask about it and don't want to commit to the real thing. if you're loosely interested, you might give it a shot.

Junior, that's cool that you read it too. Usually NO ONE has ever heard of Hagakure.
