Books, have you read any?

I'm not too big on books but some of the last books I've read were the ones posted below.
• "The Black Hand" by Chris Blatchford
• "Mainline" by Joseph McCarty
• "Monster: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member" by Sanyika Shakur.

I've read books before for school prior to actually enjoying reading one, the first book I've enjoyed reading was Chris Blatchford's Black Hand which was concentrated around Rene "Boxer" Enriquez, a drop out of the Mexican Mafia faction and the infrastructure and life behind prison bars. I've read Mainline after that simply to enhance my own knowledge about prison gangs, the prisons themselves and the corruption of the law officials which make many of those things possible. I need to give a shoutout to Kushin for those, he put me on those by sending me the actual books printed out as a file in Wordpad. Now Monster was a book I've discovered by looking for good authors in the similar genre when I came across Sanyika Shakur. I had and still have plans to read more of her books since she's an outstanding writer and I would recommend her to everyone interested in reading or enhancing their knowledge about street gangs and the lifestyle in general. I've actually done the Monster Book as an audio book which was an amazing experience as well.

If there's anything I want to point out then that's from the perspective of someone who hasn't ever enjoyed reading any books and has only read school novels I've came to actually learn a lot from the books I've read. I would heavily suggest you if you dislike books to find a genre you love, read about something you're interested in or you want to learn more about. I would also really suggest trying to read a book as an audio book or on the computer via a print out like I mostly did, because those methods kept my attention on lock. I'm not the type of person who enjoys literature in real life, who would physically pick up a book and read it, I dislike the method but there are many people who disagree with me which is fine.

Tell me about it. Reading my 2800 Historea Legum et Antiquitates Juris book (History of Law), 1700 Criminal Procedure Law, and 2300 pages Administrative Law and Administrative Procedure books right now >.< Law students struggles. 


I have read more than 400 books so far and I have my own little library. History, psychoanalytic, thrillers, anything legal related etc.

I just finished the first of the Mistborn series and I loved it. I'm finding the start of the second book a bit too combat-heavy though (I have trouble keeping up with it) so might just skip some bits to get back to the actual story. 

Decided to dip, at least for a bit. Reasoning and shit is here.

Good luck!
