GIve up watching TV and video games.

Definitely helps. I didn't completely give up TV (I gotta have me some NCIS and Last Man Standing), but I turn it off more often.

I also try to hop on the excerise bike and get some cardio in several times a week. I can knock out quite a few pages while I'm on that thing.

re: Reading Challenge 2019
i am shooting for 30

A combo of audio and actual reading.

Tragedy Plus Time by Adam Cayton-Holland 5 hours. 4 stars

Cherry by Nico Walker 8 hours. I'm torn on this, I could go anywhere from 2 stars to 3 and a half.

The Crossings by Michael Connelly 4 stars.

Devil All the Time Donald Ray Pollock. 1.5 stars

The Outsider Stephen King. 3 stars

The Drop Dennis Lehane 3 stars

Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle. 4 stars. I'm not sure he stuck the landing but I enjoyed most of it.

The Man from the Train: The Solving of a Century-Old Serial Killer Mystery by Bill James 4.5 stars. Really well done.

Full Disclosure by Stormy Daniels. 4 stars, I liked it and the Trump stuff was the least interesting imo.

The Force by Don Winslow 4 stars. It's the second thing by Winslow that I've read (Savages was the first and I didn't like it at all) and wasn't sure that I thought about 1/4th of the way into it but I'm glad I stuck with it.

Dark Sacred Night by Michael Connelly 3 stars.

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell 4 stars. A solid change of pace book.


Past Tense by Lee Child 4 stars. An enjoyable Jack Reacher book after what has felt like a few misses.

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn 2 and a half stars. It wasn't great but I wanted to like it.

Lose Well by Chris Gethard 3.5 stars a solid fun listen. Sort of a self help book but I liked hearing about his struggle to embracing his weirdness.

Universal Harvester by John Darnielle 2.5 stars.

Bad Blood by John Carreyrou 4 stars

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie 4 stars


The Hunter by Richard Stark 1.5 stars

Radiant Angel by Nelson Demille 4 stars

The Power of the Dog by Don Winslow 5 stars. Holy shite a great read.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette 4 stars a fun read.

The Man Who Came Uptown by George Pelaconos 3 stars

The Cartel by Don Winslow 4.5. Not as good as The Power of The Dog but still very good.

Currently reading The Sopranos Sessions.

re: Reading Challenge 2019
Got through about 35 last year, but some were rereads

1. An Ember in the ashes (Tahir) - 464 - 4.5 - Really liked it and though the author who is a younger woman has a great grasp of diction reading the second one now.
2. A torch against the night (Tahir) - 452 - 4.5
3. Career of evil - Galbraith (Rowlings) - 512 - 4.25
4. Tai-Pan - Clavell - 4.5 (Only thing I didn't like about it was all the intentional broken english; at times it was hard to understand what was actually being said)

re: Reading Challenge 2019
Just getting back into this whole "reading for pleasure" game.

My goal for 2019 is 26 books.

I can probably do a whole lot more, but I think a book every two weeks is good for dipping back in.

1. 1984, George Orwell, 328, (in progress).

The Johnny Lawrence

I see you have a lot of Roosevelt literature. If you haven't read The River of Doubt, I highly recommend it.

That book made me realize just how messed up the Roosevelt family was. For everything that Theodore was, it put an immense amount of pressure on the rest of the family, and really screwed up Kermit it seems. He tried to live up to his father's reputation, and ended up destroying himself because of it.

re: Reading Challenge 2019
I was gifted the Edmund Morris Trilogy for Christmas. These will be the first books I can recall reading on Roosevelt. Most of my political reading is one off books of presidential candidates on their proposed policies or behind the scenes books of the White House inner workings.

The two exceptions are W and Reagan. I've read a fair bit of biographies about both of those two guys, as they are my two favorite presidents to date.

re: Reading Challenge 2019
New dad and my time no longer seems to belong to exclusively me, so this could be a challenge. But I’ve found myself not turning on the TV nearly as much already this year, so that should help.

GOAL: 45 books
1) The Innocent, Harlan Coben, 370, 4*
2) Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, John Carreyrou, 299, 3.5*
3) The Outsider, Stephen King, 561, 3*
4) In Cold Blood, Truman Capote, 343 (in progress)

re: Reading Challenge 2019
How do you guys determine your star ratings?

Do you use a specific benchmark for each star or just wing it?

The reason I ask is that some books are good, some are great. Some I would recommend to others and some I would buy copies of to give out to people. Some I know are going to be great for me and where I am at in life but others may have a different perspective that rates a book lower.

I suppose this would mostly apply to nonfiction, and is probably overthinking it a little, but I was just wondering if there any TDBB established rules for ratings or if anyone took any of the above into account when rating a book.



eta: also, is this the thread to discuss and ask questions about books others are reading or should that be done in the "what are you reading thread"? This is my first year on the book board so I didn't want to breach any etiquette.
