I'm in the process of finishing up a great bio of The Beatles by Bob Spitz. I started reading it at the library the other day, killing time while the boss was trying to download some software off the Net, and got hooked on it.

Hunting Al Qaeda. It's a book about a National Guard Special Forces unit that was deployed to afghanistan in support OEF 2002. Very insightful book on the life of a special forces unit and not just SF but the National Guard SF and some of B.S they deal with that a regular active duty SF team would not deal with.

The Quickie, by James Patterson.

Basically about a disgruntled marriage and the two cheat on each other, the female witnesses a terrible crime that basically the one she cheated with as well as her husband is involved in.

Pretty much been action packed and suspensful from minute one.

A Deepness In The Sky, by Verner Vinge. Sci-fi novel involving time-dilation, a civilization of giant spiders, and other weird crap. Almost done with it; I give it five GillyFo's out of five. :thumbup:/:thumbdown:

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Lone Survivor - Marcus Luttrell

I just read the article about the leader of the team who was killed and is having a battleship named after him. Sounded like and intense story!! And the mission was called Operation Red Wings? At some point in my life I'd like to read that book.

Thanks for the suggestions - I'm going to go to the library again tomorrow.

May I suggest that anyone who insists on attempting the "classics" not waste their time? I tried getting through both Anna Karenina and Don Quixote - couldn't make it through either one.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I've considered trying to read some of the classics that we were forced to in high school but I have the same problem, can't get through them. I actually need to try to read some more.

A couple of years ago I go hooked on an author that writes scifi romance. She has a series of books, I think I read 17 of them in 6 months time. But they have a little Greek mythology in there, Artemis is a main character, and there are soul stealing Daimons. If you might be interested her name is Sherrilyn Kenyon and it's the Dark Hunter series. She has a couple other series as well and yes there is romance in them too, but the books are not full of it which is what makes them so good.

Thanks Offsides

Re-reading the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. The new book, A Dance With Dragons, comes out next month. Its been a while since I read the series so I wanted to freshen up before it comes out.

For non-fiction, I'm reading "Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers." I want to brew some beers using ancient techniques and ingredients, so this book is kind of a primer for that.
