    yeah if I had the job you did, I know for sure I'd read way less than I do. I always forget that Forrest Gump was a book, maybe I'll read it or listen to it one of these days. What made you lose the drive?

    I recommend audio. The dialect take a while to get used to when reading

    With Forest Gump, too far from movie Gump. The differences kept bugging me.

    I'm currently reading The Adventurer's Son by Roman Dial. The first half is a bit of slog, but the second half quickly dives into the main point of the book (his son gets lost and the author tries to find him).

    Got this today for my son to read at night :) I remember my dad getting it for me and I thought it was just the coolest thing ever.

    I finished If it Bleeds by Stephen King last week. It's a collection of 4 short stories and I would describe it really as just "ok". I'm a big Stephen King fan and still thought it worth the time, but only really thought 1 of the stories was really good while the rest were just fine.

    Finally in the BSSM era of Scar Tissue and its kind of fascinating. Had no idea Rick Rubin convinced them to write and record the album in an LA house and they all lived there, minus Chad. I knew John was a recluse, but didn't know how much he resented their success almost immediately. Also didnt know the first tour for the album had Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam as openers. Then Nirvana and PJ towards the end. That tour must have been unreal.
