Default Books did not know we had so many book fans. What is your FAV?

I've started this thread to see if they're any book fans out here.

At the current moment I'm reading, Mafia Dynasty: The Rise and Fall of the Gambino Crime Family.

I've never liked reading or writing and it's something I've been pondering about a long time. Being able to read and write efficiently is a tool that many people including myself take for granted.

If you've read any good books or know of any good books then please comment.

Thank you friends.

I read tons of random stuff online. Info online is more dynamic, up to date, diversified, etc.. but books are cool too.

Last books I really got into were Dan Brown's books (starting with the Da Vinci code in high school, naturally) and about a dozen of Robert Ludlum's books. Ludlum is probably the most descriptive fictional writer I've ever read anything by.

Do you all read a bit every day or do you make time throughout the week to read?

I think I'll have to do some in the morning too when I wake up. I'm doing about 10-20 pages a night before bed so I think if I can include the mornings I'll see a difference in the long run.

Do you have the audio book playing on audible?

I find it hard to listen to a book while doing stealth, from avoiding so many ways to getting linked and trying to interpret the book I just figured to not do it.

Just a follow up.

I listened to the audiobook Shoe Dog by Phil Knight, I give that book a 9/10. It was a really good book and very inspiring. It makes want to run 5-10 miles a day

I then listened to Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink & Leif Babin, I give that book a 10/10. Listening to that audiobook really opened my perspective on how to become a good leader and it also is teaching me how to be responsible. I really enjoyed this book.

I'm currently listening to Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou, I'll provide feedback when I'm done.

I wish there was a Netflix type of concept to the audiobook business.
