    I love reading. It is surprising that there aren't that many good books on BBing.

    I need to go back and read the ones I have again. I ordered Brother Iron, Sister Steel hopefully it will be a good read.

    There probably are a bunch on bodybuilding but I am not really into physique training that much so I tend not to seek out those kinds of books.

    I do read strength training books as well. They tend to be more informative than BBing books. Starting Strength 3rd edition was released and thinking of picking it up.

    Though books are nice to bring along for a bathroom trip, with all the free information that's already on the internet, there's not a ton of value in investing in bodybuilding books. I suppose that's arguable, but at the same time, everything you would ever need to know about it is already on the internet and available for free.

    Just my opinion... Also, I was serious about the bathroom thing. I love reading in there!
