The Master Handbook of Acoustics is extremely dense. However, it is probably the easiest acoustics book to understand. I had to use it as a text book. I can not imagine using it for pleasure reading.

"Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring" by JRR Tolkein

Probably about my 10th time, now, but I usually read through the entire trilogy and "The Hobbit" at least once a year.

Just finishing rereading the Don Juan trilogy by Carlos Castaneda after a 30 year break. They were a lot more interesting as an adult and not a bad read. Moves fast with a kind of talking to you grandfather feel.

That is interesting, I have those books in my library and am planning to reread them also, thanks for the reminder, you are right I am sure I will look at them from a different perspective after more years then I want to mention.

I think you'll be pleased. I didn't have anything to read and dug them out of box of old books not really expecting to read very far, turned out I ripped through them. -enjoy

Just finished "The Tao of Physics" by physicist Fritjof Capra and "The Universe Inside a Single Atom" by the Dalai Lama, both great books about the same subject from two different view points.

I loved this book. It doesn't even have alot of teh elements in it that I would typically enjoy but, for some reason, it clicked on all my cylinders. I have not enjoyed a king book so much in years.

I just finished "Pillars of the Earth" and it must be stated that never before have I despised a fake peron as much as I did William Hamleigh.

I'm reading Stephen King's Under the Dome. It's my third or fourth time reading it. It's one of his best. Perfect for ATS.

I just finished reading Raymond Chandler calssic "The Big Sleep." Chandler was a master of dialouge and description. Reading Chandler is dangerous for anybody that believes they are a good writer. One trip through any of his Marlowe works will nearly destroy your confidence.

It's actually rather funny if you try to read it aloud with all those extremely long names.

I always like to find out what people are reading. Right now I am into '___': The Spirit Molecule (for the 2nd time), and am just starting the last book in the Golden Compass series.

The Hobbit...by the one and only J.R.R.Tolkien, world renown eminent scholar of English Language, twice elected professor at Oxford, specializing in Anglo-Saxon and medieval literature. Moreover, he was a distinguished philologist and linguist, being able to adopt scientific methods to decode ancient languages and reform them into new ones.

Trickle Up Poverty by Michael Savage

I read things from all points of view. I've read things from Chomsky, Amy Freeman, Marx and dozens of others. So, reading Savage is just seems like the naturual thing to do.

I think he does make a couple of leaps in his logic. However, he does make a few interesting points.
