So despite the rough early start my relationship with books got (I just simply did not like to read for enjoyment, AT ALL.) I started to develop a love for literature when I was a young adult and I have simple not stopped since. My two favorite authors of all time are Christopher Moore, Cory Doctorow and Holly Black. My favorite books are harder because I love many, however I guess I could try a list if we all understand that this is not in a particular order and shifts often.

  • Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town – C. Doctorow
  • The Blind Side – Michael Lewis
  • Dangerous Angels – F.L. Block
  • Lost Souls – P.Z. Brite
  • Freak Show – James St. James
  • The Hunger Games Trilogy – Suzanne Collins
  • Tithe, Valiant, Ironside – Holly Black

Anywhocaresgetonwithit, I recently decided to reread The Blind Side, which lead me to reread all my football books. Thing here is that I love TBS (The Blind Side) because it is more than both a great story and good writing, it is also the history of on aspect of football. You get so much information in such a great way, it don’t feel like school or too technical or anything. You walk away from TBS with an amazing understanding of the game! AWESOME, I am searching for another football book like that and thus far have not found it. However, because I love the game, my team (the Saints) and reading I did buy both Drew Brees’ book and Sean Peyton’s as well. Both are great books, but the y do not have a history of the universal game. They are the history of them and how they related to and were treated by the game.

I am just starting Eric LeGrand’s book. I love Eric, he is an amazing spirit and I am captivated by his energy, devotion, belief and attitude. All those things being said the jury is still firmly out on this book. I wish that Micheal Lewis would have written his story, it deserves a professional writer who is proven in the football genre. That being said, I’m reading it before Steve Jobs so clearly he makes an impression.

I also have Francesca Lia Block’s newest (I believe) book, Pink Smog. It’s a prequel to the Weetzie Bat books which are all found together in Dangerous Angels. So far I have started it five times, I can’t get past the virtual page five.
