I love to read. I just wander around the library and pick up what catches my eye. I just finished Falling Leaves which was recommended by someone and am in the middle of a book about a guy w/ Asperger's who had it diagnosed after being married and having kids.  I also read a ton of fitness things--right now I'm reading the Corrective Exercise Specialist manual and ACE's advanced health and fitness specialist book.  I'm a geek.

lol I just wander around the library too looking for whatever might "jump out" at me. I saw a book on the newly arrived shelf a few weeks ago about the resistance in Nazi occupied Poland during WWII and it really got my interest sparked in the Holocaust so I went down to the history section and grabbed a few survivor stories.

I have been reading like a fiend since I got my Kindle fire a year ago.  I find books in any number of ways...  I have a media list that I keep in Evernote to write down books, music, TV or movies that I want to check out.  I get some suggestions from People magazine (as I spend a fair amount of time in waiting roooms.  I get Psychology Today magazine and they have book reviews.  I also get a lot of book suggestions from the interviews on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.  

I just finished a book recommend by a client called Await Your Reply by Dan Chaon.  It was fantastic.  I am also reading Salman Rushdie's newest book Joseph Anton which is about his life after the fatwa was issued on his life.  It's a very long book and kind of a tough read so I'm taking it slowly but it's fascinating.  I also recented finished a book called What Alice Forgot.  I forget the name of the author but it was great.  As soon as these headaches subside enough that I can read again, I'm going to start a book called The Black Box by Michael Connelly.  He's a favorite author of mine.
