  • 1984 is a must read currently. Even if you previously read it, time to dust it off.

  • My last book was "Stalin" a biography obviously, and am currently reading a book called, "Spy vs. Spy", an in depth look on the FBI's spy tracking. It was written in the 80's before communism fell. The best book I ever read may have been "1984" or "Atlas Shrugged". "Tragedy and Hope" by Carroll Quigley was one of the best and most eye opening non-fiction book I have read. My 2 favorite albums are "Revolver" by The Beatles and "Machine Head" by Deep Purple. It's tough to narrow it down to 2 albums

  • How is Quarter Black going to say hes reading Lord of the Rings and would pick Coheed as one of his albums? Those are my favorite books and one of my favorite bands, and the exact album I was going to say. (I was thinking of Good Apollo I'm burning star IV Volume one but ended up changing it.) Dude just jumped to the top of the list on the show. Sorry Bill. Haha

  • The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss is probably one of my favorites ever especially if you like fantasy/sci-fi. The first book The Name of the Wind and the second the Wise Man's Fear are amazing, but unfortunately still waiting for the author to finish the series... Don't hold your breath on that

  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Am I the only subscriber who can read? There are 8 book so far and a Stars series with 5 seasons so far. There is a lot of sex, love, history, and time travel in both the books and the series . I am not much of a music person that said one for dancing the other for listening the names I can't remember.

Been reading it for 15 years. I cant pick 2 albums... I love such a wide variety of music. Although, my favorite song is "Lost Elf" from Dragon Age Trespasser... I just gave away all my gamer nerd vibes in this post!

  • As far as books I would recommend the Inheritance cycle (the first book is Eragon) by Christopher Paolini. This may be my favorite series of all time. And my second recommendation is the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth and that could easily be followed up with her two book series made up of Carve the Mark and The Fates Divide. Both of these series are young adult although I don't see why adults couldn't love em. Eragon is fantasy, Divergent is dystopian and Carve the Mark is Sci Fi I guess. Also for younger readers the Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus series and anything else by Rick Riordan are amazing (although sadly his liberal garbage sneaks in every once in a while).
