I read a lot of magazines online and in print a few. I usually have a Bloomberg Business week, The Economist and a local paper on me
And read a lot online. Mainly industry related news and notes and then I read financials of my clients which can get alittle dry. 10k statements, earnings reports etc.

But I read a solid and fairly quick book recently that gives some insight backed by solid facts.

The Coming Jobs War. Very good read.

What is everyone reading now and how much do you read? I would say in research I gotta be around an hour a day. Then fun stuff add another hour.

I am about to start Killing Lincoln to see what the fuss is all about.

I subscribe to several car/boat mags and manage to read several pages a day while sitting on the old porcelain throne.

does that count?? :)

I keep hoping to make it down south, as I hear wolf has quite the collection of bathroom reading that he is more than willing to loan out...

Just about finished with American Sniper. It's a bio about a Navy SEAL sniper named Chris Kyle. He's a TX boy and a very easy read, makes you feel like your knee deep in the shi+ with him. Got a couple mags delivered to the house to for the Jon reading when the iPad is dead or hogged up by the kiddos

I used to read a couple years ago but I have a hard time finding books that are interesting. When I was in Egypt for a month about a year and half ago I read a series of books called the ezekiel option or something like that, knocked out all three in a month. I like reading magazine but I am too cheap to buy a subscription, most of my read is on the yahoo news ticker on the computer.

Brad Thor and Vince Flynn are pretty fun for casual or beach reading. I save them for airports cuz I have layovers every time I fly in and out of here.

I read my Bible every day. That's about the only book though. I've read of the Bug Man Series so far though, they are GREAT! Very suspenseful and graphic. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1/191-6758083-1126742?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=bug+man+series

I subscribe to a few mags, Sport Rider, Road and Track, Car and Driver, and Popular Mechanics right now. Subscribed to 4-Wheel and Off-Road for many years, but seemed liek ti was getting too repetitious. I don't like reading online mags as much...maybe jsut 'cuz they're harder to read on the throne? Lol. I do read Cycle News online, and sometimes Racer X.

Apparently, this is only true if you're at my home to do some work. I think I need to install a "contractor crapper" somewhere out in the woods.

Get the Sunday paper... No time for daily. Does that count? :rolleyes:

I get 4-wheel and Offroad, and Offroad Adventures (both free) but like Ryan said they seem very repetitive anymore.
New Technology is a decent mag I steal from work regularly.

My kids have to read a minimum of 20 minutes every night for HW so I try to make it a point to join them. I keep telling myself if I had a tablet I'd read more - I have no idea why I think that though. Just the novelty factor I guess.

My girls keep hounding me to start reading The Hunger Games but with Spring time coming I'd much rather be outside building/fixing/playing basically anything than sitting around.

I am currently reading "Beyond Einstein" by Michio Kaku. It is not an easy read, but it is interesting (if you like physics, quantum theory). Plus the Car and Driver monthly and Waterski (whenever they send one).

You know, before I got the Galaxy tab and Kindle Fire I used to read wakeboarding and hunting mags on the throne. Now I can talk to you guys and read magazines online while I'm on the "thinkin chair". :cool:

Oh yeah, and Readers Digest. My grandmother subscribed and I used to read them every time I went over there. Have been addicted ever since.

Readers Digest may be the G.O.A.T. of toilet reads.

You only need the Readers Digest when the paper runs out!

Lol, I do the same.

If you enjoy reading 10k's, you are a special breed.

My wife enjoys reading but I do little to no reading outside if the news. She just finished Pens (pen and teller) new book.

Never been a reader. I sometimes wish I were and have even given it a serious chance a few times. Just don't have the attention span. Guess I'd rather be working on something.

You have to be kidding me. No MP, I do not like physics or quantum theory, but thanks for making us all look like a bunch of backwards hillbillies!;) I was horrible in my physics class in high school and college. Was glad when it was over. :)

Lots of car enthusiasts here.

LOL. Sometimes the big wurds are hart to reed reel gud.

It's ok though, they still have the comics in one of our local rags here in Georgia. (At least I think they do, I never read my own local paper.)

courtesty of craigslist and the internet, I run after the dog to scold him and he just laughs at the rolled up excuse of a paper here :)

I subscribed to our local paper a couple weeks before we even moved to our new house. Week 1, no paper. Called Monday and they delivered it. Week 2, no paper again...Called Monday, complained nicely, and they delivered it. Week 3 no paper again! I called and told them to bring me a paper and cancel my account, which they did... Paper sucked anyways... I only get them for the coupons (savings at Publix is 20-25% per shopping trip, and I'm not talking $100-$200 bills... ;) ).

I can't even go to Publix. Ouch! Get all our stuff at Wally's and meat/cheese and stuff in bulk at Sam's.

With coupons and stuff, I can get outta Publix same price or cheaper, and get namebrand stuff. Trying to support USA more and China less ;) I should probably look into SAMS / COSTSO again... Used to be a wash, some stuff was actually more expensive at SAMS than to buy individual at WallyWorld, esp. by the time you figure in membership fees. Gotta have somewhere to put all that bulk stuff, that's our biggest problem...

hey, what's this have to do with reading? Lol.

^you're reading this thread aren't you :)

walmart is the root of all evil here in the states. out here, they have the perception of low prices, but not usually the case.


ask yourself this: why would a retailer that claims to have the lowest price need to have an advertised price match policy? ;)

I hate 'em too. But, between them and Publix they've run everybody else off. I can buy a case of beer at Wally for 16.79 or two twelve packs at publix (they won't carry cases) for 12.99 apiece. I don't buy meat at Walmart so for the rest who cares? It's cheaper.
