City of Dragons, Book 3 of the Rain Wild Chronicles, by Robin Hobb.

Pretty good, but her best so far was the Liveship Trader Trilogy.

The Adventure of English by Melvyn Bragg

I know, I know. It sounds lame but if you speak English and/or have pride for the language this is a must-read.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

As a long time fantasy reader, I can honestly say this is one of my favorites so far. I hope the rest of the series is just as good.

The Wise Man's Fear: the Kingkiller Chronicle book 2
By Patrick Rothfuss

Tremendous. Every bit as good as the first, can't wait for the third (last) in the series.

Also I started reading through the Big Book again as it's been a long while.

Legacy of Iron

__________________
Best Gym Lifts...Dosen't matter....they don't count!

Best Meet Lifts:
Squat = 325
Bench = 210
Dead = 353
Total = 888

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
