Having signed up for the WWE Network, I thought it high time to get around to reading what many call one of the best wrestling books. And while reading, I've been rewatching many of the matches. Though unlike Foley's and Jericho's books, this goes into some really unpleasant places that make me not feel so good about the business.

I liked it. It's a good start to Locke's Western series.

Just finished Jonathan Tropper's, "One Last Thing Before I Go." Trying to figure out the ending but it was still very good. Now to find Tim Dorsey's latest.

"Steel heart" by Brandon Sanderson. This book got rave reviews so I bought it, bad decision. The prose is full of bland cliches, the plot is obvious and telegraphed, the characters are painful genre standards. It's as if Dan Brown wrote a superhero book. I might stop reading it.

Re: What are you reading? (March 2014)

This marked the 200th book I've read in a smidge over 2 years. I guess I need a life.

Figured out that it represented 146 different authors - which gives me comfort in knowing that I'm not playing it safe with my choices.

Very disappointed in this one. I liked Bukowski's other books, but this one felt very pointless, repetitive and long.

I enjoyed it, though the style (with all the old photographs) didn't translate very well on my Kindle. With the story setup, this seems like a series with quite a bit more to be delivered.
