    What are you currently reading?
    I didn’t see a post anywhere on the first page for this or when I searched, so I figured I would start a thread of my own!

    What book are you currently reading? Or what was the most recent book that you have read? I myself have just started reading a book called Drylor The First Artifact. It is an Action/Fantasy book created by Ryan Tomasella. So far it is actually good, it is a story about a man that suffers amnesia and struggles to regain his memory. As his memory starts to come back to him he realizes that his brother is an evil S.o.b and he makes it his mission to stop him.

    It seems like a fairly generic story line but the author makes it his own. There are tons of twists and turns in the story (mainly when the main character thinks he remembers something from his past he realizes that it was only an illusion that his brother wanted him to think was true.) I must say I am really impressed with this book, then again I read almost anything that involved sword and sorcery. Below is the cover of the book and what the back of the book reads.



    When a man wakes up inside a cage that is being carried through
    an underground city, he has no idea where he is or what has
    happened to him. As Von, a victim of amnesia, is taken to a jail
    cell to await his fate amongst elves, humans, dwarfs, gnomes, and
    halflings, he is told he is a member of the Royal Guard of Genisus.
    It is not long before he is transported to the palace where he
    meets an impatient king who eventually returns him to his jail
    cell while deciding his destiny.

    As Von’s memory slowly returns, he discovers that he is the only
    one who can protect Drylor—a world that abandoned him—
    from its greatest evil, his own brother. Through his journey to the
    truth, Von meets an unlikely group of friends who are willing
    to sacrifice everything to help him stop his brother Scarlet
    from annihilating the only world they have ever known.

    As Von’s past becomes clear and reveals his future, he soon
    realizes the only way he can end his brother’s heartless
    massacres is to find him and kill him.

    The book is for sale through all major online retailers, so you can buy a copy from Amazon, Barnes and Nobles or any other book retailers. If you're too lazy to look it up then here is a link to the barnes and nobles website where you can place an order:

    It's a finance book, teaching people to automate their life and become more like entrepeneurs rather than employees working at dead end jobs. A good read.

    Yes, no doubt about it. Rich Dad Poor Dad is another good book in that subject matter

    They teach you buying and reselling pretty much or other tips like stock trading and what not?

    I remember picking up a book like that in the past but it was something stupid like buying and selling lawn chairs and stupid stuff that would rarely ever turn a profit.

    Well I don't have too much time for personal reading being in grad school so I mostly read boring text book-like things.

    Right now however, I have a week in between classes so I'm reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
