Thinking of my community of LGBT people around the world today. Orlando is, for me, about innocent people and their families and friends terrorised by a murderer and a sick homophobe. He may have been ordered by ISIL, but it suits them to claim responsibility anyway. Worldwide, we men may respectfully disagree with each other, but in this Pride season, there will be rage, passion, joy, silence and sex.

Duty by Robert Gates. Great look into the two wars, two different Presidents and the ever present uselessness of the congress.

Patterson got too graphic for me.  Give me Grisham and Grafton instead.

James Patterson's Alex Cross / Michael Bennett detective series are a must-read. Thrilling page-turners

After mourning the final episode of Justified, I had to pick up a copy of Elmore Leonard's Riding the Rap. Familiar characters, and some of the episodes of the show were inspired by the book. I've enjoyed every Leonard book I've read so far. Just finished Tishimingo Blues.

Making my way back through the Tony Hillerman Leaphorn/Chee books. Quick summer type reads. Finding several I hadn't read before.

Dan Brown's latest, Inferno, beyond makes up for his 3rd book(piece of junk in DC). Just finished and thoroughly enjoyed it. I know a lot of people like to rag on all that he writes, but they are mostly douchebags whose opinions I don't care about.

Greetings all. So I don't know about the rest of you, but last year I reread AoM.  At the end of the book is a list of 100 books every man should read.  I decided to go through the whole list, and even rereading the books I had already read.  I noticed that now I am older, I understood some of these books completely different now as an adult as opposed to when I was in high school.  I'm about 1/4 way through the list now.  I should be further on, but I have been side tracked by other books, ranging from young adult fiction to language learning.  Point is, if anyone wants a suggestion, I recommend consulting that list at the end of AoM.  It varies from the list of 100 books every man should read on the website, but not by much (I still prefer the selections in the book list).

Does the universe have powers?

The definition of universe of course is open to your interpretation; could be your god, the physical universe, or maybe just your immediate environment/sphere of influence. I'm 27 and nearly 2 years into my career. I'm not happy. In fact I think I'm starting to loose my mind. A windlowless basement, unreliable car, no friends, no relatives around, and no woman isn't helping. I'm in no less financial debt than I was before I took this job. I'm no healthier. I've been called dumb too many times…See More
