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.

Far better is it to challenge awesome factors, to win fantastic triumphs, even though checked by failing... than to position with those inadequate mood who neither appreciate nor experience much, because they reside in a grey evening that knows not success nor beat.

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?
