i thought it would be interesting to see what books, magazines, newspapers, and net articles other sharks are reading.

i just go done reading The Road by Cormic Mccarthy(No Country For Old Men) and A Feast of Crows by George R.R. Martin, and i just started reading the Dragon Bone Chair by Tad Williams. If you haven't read The Road, you should. It is a very dark post-apocalyptic book that is written so well that you want to finish it in a single night.

I love sports illustrated and read it from cover to cover

the newspaper i buy the most this time of the year is probably the USA Today, just because they have great nfl point spreads (survivor pool help) and usely have good info on fantasy football.

I'm in my mid 20's, if it's not on the internet I probably won't read it :)

*Football Guys Newsletter
*Baseball Musings
*Roto Authority
*Buster Olney Blog
*Hardball Times
*Browsing team websites and homer message boards for more in depth info, homer boards are quite useful as long as you don't read beyond the first post
*Book of Tells - I'll probably start reading this again as the colder months approach and I start playing more poker

You could say I eat, sleep, and breathe football and baseball...and to a lesser degree poker.

I have read most of them and I like his style. Have you read anything by Robert CRAIS? His books are very similar to Lee Child. Fast paced. One of the main character is Elvis Cole, a witty PI.
I just finished "Broken Window" by Jeffery Deaver. Good book IMO.

I have read a few by Childs, Crais, and Deaver; all are entertaining.
I would recommend Greg Iles and Michael Connelly to you guys. Those are two of my faves. :thumbup:
