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).

Good evening gents it's nice to be apart of a book club. I've got to read books such as the alchemist and awakening the Buddha within. Does anyone have any recommendations to any book? What are your top 5 books?

I started reading Paddle Your Own Canoe by Nick Offerman (better known as his character Ron Swanson). So far I'm just five chapters in but it's been a great and easy read. Between his humor and his words of wisdom I've been entertained with every page and hit with insight words of wisdom. If your a fan of the advice articles here at artofmanliness.com you'd really love Offerman's book.

Good morning, John.

Thanks for the tips.  "Call of Cthulhu" will be one of my next stories by Lovecraft.  I am on fb, but not nearly as often as I used to be.  Google+ also has a Lovecraft appreciation community.
