 Good books that keep you entertained are good to find, and if you like all things nautical with plenty of action you should look into anything written by Clive Cussler. You may have seen the flick 'Sahara' starring Matthew McConaughy, Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz that was adapted from a Cussler novel, but it was lacking because the books are twice as in-depth.

  I would recommend picking up 'Inca Gold', or 'Flood Tide' as page turners for the sea faring, history-infused-with-action addicts. Any one of Cusslers books would be a good read though. You would be surprised at how much is packed into his novels, and how much of an enjoyment they are. He has written in the ballpark of 33 books to choose from as well.

BOOKS

Hey Section good to hear from ya.

I have all but 2-3 of Cusslers books and read them twice I think. I havent read any D Koontz yet but I think my wife has some to pick through. Clancy isnt bad if you can concentrate on what youre reading, with little noise to distract you.  I dont care much for Steven King novels either, they jump around too much. Met him in a book store awhile ago (he lives about 45 min away), hes an awful nice guy but he is one creepy dude.

Michael Crichton is another one of my faves, he has immense talent with writing and has an array of different subject matter from book to book.  "Eaters of the dead" is one of his finest novels IMO.

BOOKS

Gotta agree with your opinion, Clive Cussler is definitely a top writer. I have read many of his books, probably not all, because whenever I see one, I can't remember if I read it before. I also love Deane Koontz, he has an interesting series about a character named Odd Thomas. Tom Clancy novels are a good read as well, they are long books, but I go through them pretty quickly, even with the small font. Any book about Star Wars is tops on my list as well, I have read close to 100 of them. The only writer I had a hard time getting into is Steven King. His books are very long, and don't get really interesting until about halfway through. Anyone who has read IT, or The Stand will probably back me up on this. I did enjoy them, but not until about page 400. Deane Koontz manages to suck me in by page 2 or 3.

Well thats my blog within a blog for today.
