Books That Guys LOVE (2014 Edition)

February greetings to all the reader guys out there. The Iron Guy recently noticed that February has a lot of holidays for such a short month. There's Groundhog Day, Chinese New Year (which actually started on January 31 but is celebrated for two weeks), and President's Day.

Then there's-----that holiday!!

Yes, that holiday--February 14. The one devoted to--to--pink hearts and romance and looooovvee. All the things that make MANLY MEN shudder. 

HOW MANLY MEN VIEW ROMANCE
 



HULK SMASH MUSHY LOVE STUFF!!




Well, all this talk about romance brings to mind a post I wrote last year and one I wrote in 2011 and even one from 2009. These all talked about books and things GUYS love. What do guys LOVE? 
Large Pizzas
Movies where lots of things blow up
Really close football/basketball games
Ice-cold drinks on hot days

And what books do guys LOVE?

Of course, we have Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Alex Rider, etc. Based on what other guys have said over the years, here are:

Dan Gutman books, especially the My Weird School series
 






Gordon Korman books, especially the Island trilogy
 





Science Fair by Dave Barry
 





Three of my favorites are:

The Alvin Ho books (Funny for younger and older reader guys as well as grownups):
 
 




The Brixton Bothers series (great comedy and mystery):
 






And Treasure Island (for older reader guys but still the best pirate story ever):
 






There are lots and lots more but this is a good start. How about YOU? What books do you LOVE? Leave
a comment in the space under this post and I'll post them.
