Are you really reading Shakespeare's plays in your free time? Probably not very applicable to the GMAT.

I read the WSJ for 45 minutes a day. Also, I have recently completed the entire A Song of Fire and Ice / Game of Thrones series (published up this point), have read most of the novels on this list (http://www.modernlibrary.com/top-100/100-best-novels), and am currently making my way through Michael Lewis' books.

I would highly recommend anything that I've mentioned for either GMAT Verbal prep or for leisure.

Just finished with Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs. I recommend it.

I read ESPN and Yahoo! Sports in my free time.

I also read novels.

I recently returned to comic books, though I try to keep this pastime under control. My favorite is The Spectre. As for books, I'm currently reading Stabilizing an Unstable Economy by Hyman Minsky.

I think to each their own! Myself, I keep my professional and personal lives pretty separate, although not sure how viable that will be in b-school. Reading The Twelve by Justin Cronin right now.

I have just started reading A Time to Kill by John Grisham, I've read three of his other books before and thought I'd start the collection on my kindle. Also in my spare time when I get home from work I read some WSJ, FT and NY Times deal book on the odd occasion.

Hi mluthar,
I also love to read and just finished Harry Potter novel. Shakespeare is a great writer and which book of Shakespeare are you reading?
