What are you reading right now?

I just wanna ask if any are book-readers here, what is everyone taking their time on reading right now. It can be wrestling, sports, or anything else in general.

For me personally, I’m finishing up Death of the Territories by Tim Hornbaker. The most in-depth book of the history of professional wrestling in North America I’ve ever read.

There are two that I’m looking forward to when I’m done with that. One is an interesting look at the formation of the early 2000s Lakers dynasty with Kobe, Shaq, and Phil Jackson called Three Ring Circus authored by sportswriter Jeff Pearlman. That era was when I started to fall in love with sports as a four year old.

And the other I’m looking forward to is Wayne Gretzky’s most recent book titled “99 Stories of the Game” where he looks back at some of the biggest stories of the National Hockey League from his point of view.

I figure this could be a cool thread where people can talk about what they are reading, give recommendations, or just comment on shows others are are currently into.

Making my way through Rae’s memoir and I wanna start American Born Chinese (it’s getting a live-action adaptation with a loaded cast with Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu and Daniel Wu)

Just finished Donna Tartt’s “The Secret History” (after years of friends and co-workers expressing bewilderment that I hadn’t read it), and then Euripides’ “The Bacchae” as context for that. Just starting in on Shirley Jackson’s “We Have Always Lived In The Castle”, as I’ve been on a big tear of classic weird/ghost fiction for the past couple of years.

How’s the Rae book, @crookedletter9? I’ve been fascinated for years by the RZA v Ghost/Rae tension (with Meth acting as peace-keeper) and I imagine Rae’s the sort to pull no punches with that stuff.


I’m not there yet, @contrasoma. I’m on chapter 6, IIRC

So far, it’s dope

Reading Star Wars Brotherhood by Mike Chen right now, but I’ve also read some graphic novels,

The first volume of the Mirage studios black and white TMNT, Boom Studios Power Rangers Unlimited and Go Go Power Rangers vol 1, Sonic the Hedgehog volume 1 lol and Grant Morrison’s JLA volume 1


Right now I’m reading Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman Court of Owls. After playing Gotham Knights where the court of owls are one of the mail villains I decided to re-read the comics the game is based on. It’s a modern DC classic.

I’ve also recently read:

  • Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow by Tom King & Bilquis Everly. I started it right before James Gunn announced plans to adapt this book for a movie. It’s a fun story but will probably need a lot of changes to adapt to film.

  • TMNT Last Ronin by Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird. A pretty typical “apocalyptic” comic but is very jarring when it’s set in the world of the turtles.

  • The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien. Watching Rings of Power inspired me to start finally reading Tolkien’s middle-earth epic.

  • Too Sweet Inside the Indie Wrestling Revolution by Keith Greenberg. The book contains lots of wild stories of the indies gathered from first hand interviews. But when it came to telling the overarching story of the birth of AEW the book relied too heavily on just quoting other interviews instead of being a true oral history.


I’ve finished Rae’s memoir and he does touch on how his feud with RZA extended to Divine’s overbearing attitude when it came to management and profits.

Chapter 16 is my favorite chapter.

Cool, thx! You can really see it being a feud born out of a real difference in personalities rather than one specific incident or fight.
