Default Books (recommendations, reviews, etc)

Starting over from stratch.

I don't really have that much time to read anymore, but when I do read, I enjoy psychological thrillers, horror, Harry Potter series, and humor. Basically anything except romance, I'm not a huge romance reader.

I got Blood in the Cage for Christmas, and it was phenomenal. It was as good, if not better, as Fighter's heart, and it has the added bonus of also being a biography of Pat Miletich. The one thing I didn't like was when he takled about Matt starting the H.I.T. Squad, he only focuses on Rothwell's bitterness & never talks to anyone from Matt's gym. Other than that, it's agreat read.

Stuff I'm reading now (pretty much because I'm sitting here on my bed staring at them.....

--Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy--Gerald Corey
--The Art of Integrative Counseling--same dude
--Integrative Counseling CD--ROM

I just finished my cosmo magazine today--I'm big into the crazy girl articles , but I really really really want to read "A Fighter's Heart" which I got for Christmas....maybe after I finish the 35 pages I need to write for one of my 3 classes....

I'm drowning in hw, but it's all good--I'll be able to help and counsel people in a few years ;)

Oh yeah, I'm also reading some Christian romance novels that Amy lendt me, and they are awesome! That's it for now.

Love,
the Doerrk

far too many to list really, I devour books, guess with a new baby that will either stop or I will plow even more with the sleepless nights of rocking baby to sleep.

Anyways:-

Naria cronicals
Lord of the RIngs

always great read and re reads

I love Andy Mcnab books just got done with his new thriller, good addition to the series.

Just also finished an amazing war book called Apache - you have got to read it if you love military stories (real life)

could go on and on

Will say one thing

If you were thinking of Reading Tito's book, forget it, dont waste your time - read Chucks and Randy's, and Matts of course great reads
