It's not metal, but I read a big ass book on The Rolling Stones that was given as a X-Mas gift. It was actually a pretty good read. I'm just into my political book phase right now.

A few years ago, a friend of mine gave me a copy of "Metal: The Definitive Guide." I just finished reading it a few weeks ago. It's basically an introduction to Metal and it's many sub-genres. It includes full biographies,discographies,hundreds of bands from nearly every sub-genre of metal, and plenty of fun and rare stories about the bands. I enjoyed reading all 500 pages along with viewing a handfull of great band pics included in the book. If you're into biographies then you will love reading this book just as much as I did.

I once read the Table of Elements... parts of it were very metal.

When it comes to actual books, though, I tend to read fiction. On my bedside table at the moment I have 'Shantaram' by Gregory David Roberts, 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being' by Milan Kundera and 'The Prophet' by Kahlil Gibran. I also have 1984 and a bunch of fantasy stuff lying around somewhere hahah :)

Hell Bent For Leather by Seb Hunter was a good one.

Slayer Reign In Blood 33 and 1/3 was a good quick read.

We've done a few book reviews here as well. I need to make them a little more findable though. My list is so long... :-)
